At the beginning of October members will record themselves individually using a click track and send the files to Fiddlerman who will create a memorable combined "Ghostbusters" International youtube video just in time to post to all your friends on Halloween.

You can count me in this time. Bile Em was not really my style of music, but this is right up my alley. I'm looking really forward to this one. Be interesting to see who wears a sheet with holes in it for the vid?dancing

Looks like a fun project.  We'll see what we can do.

I figure I can't play any worse than I did on the Cabbages.  But who knows, I might even  exceed my usual achievements in kak-handed noobishness.  LOL

I'll probably wait for the midis or at the very least the click track though.

Hey now, OUCH! roflol

In my defense, I was playing a hybrid of the Viola 1 and Viola 4 parts and simply lost my place and played four bars twice.dazedfacepalmdazed

I'm in! From a quick glance at the music, it's safe to say I'll do either part 3 or 5.

I ain't 'fraid of no ghosts! But I am afraid of part 1.

Two "N"s, Terry. Otherwise, your statement takes on a WHOLE different meaning. Accurate, perhaps in my case ... but different.

FM, you are really on the ball to get all of those parts written and posted so fast.

 

Looking forward to the click track so I can use that to practice.  On the last one I got comfortable with a tempo a touch slower and the change threw me off when doing the recording.

 

The last one was fun, and this looks like fun too.

I was intimidated by the Viola 1 part until I started actually trying to play it. It's rhythmically complex, but not hard to play, especially when you know the tune.

What we don't know is the tempo ... yet.
