Happy New Year's... umm.. Eve?  Day?  Well, whatever it is wherever you live.

Superb!!!

 

That electric gives it a mellow and haunting flavor. Makes you reminisce for that few short moments. Nicely done.

Glad you liked it, folks.  And if it got some of you to play the song, that's even better!

 

@Tyberius: I ran a bit more effect on it than I intended (it rarely seems like too much when playing), but since I didn't mess up playing it *too* badly, I just posted it instead of trying for another take. LOL

Great job, thank you for this!

I was planning to record this too for yesterday, but what with my violin getting hurt, I was a bit reluctant to play, and also demoralised, and so I didn't learn it well enough for public consumption. But I did play it for my parents when they came by, so my goal of playing Auld Lang Syne on New Year's Eve was still reached. smile

Happy new year, everyone! I hope you have a great 2013!

I fell asleep by 10:00. When I got up this morning my daughter said, "you never played Auld Lang Syne last night, did you fall asleep?".
