I like that one too but I haven't found any sheet music version that I am particularly fond of.  Which version was it you heard?

We used to play that when I was in a fife and drum corps. Having a hard time imagining it on a violin/fiddle so I hope someone posts a video.

When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low,

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.

Good idea. We used to play that with our group "Electric Fiddlers" and did it some projects we used to do with young orchestras.

Thank you Pierre! Quite a challenging piece but something to learn one bit at the time! Anyway we learn nothing when it's easy eh?

This is the version I found. It's quite different and very simple.

The 8notes version is one of the ones I found and didn't like.  I prefer the FM version even though it will take some work to learn.  wink  Thanks for putting it up, FM!

OK, the deal is that you only have to learn the first 16 measures. Forget about the rest unless you want to impress someone 🙂

Now I have to sit down and hope I transpose it properly to Viola.  But what a perfect song to bring me into the other hand positions :D

(Probably not the song I should start on for the particular skill but what can I say I'm a glutton for punishment)

I play this but can't wait to get home from work and try this version of it as well. 

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.
