Hi, would there be any audio help with the Pachelbel's canon, arr. Fiddlerman?  A midi file or such that I could play along with the different parts with?  I am strong on the ear and weak on the reading music.  I'm strugging to read and play the written notes, but am making some slow slogging advancement as I stumble through them one measure at a time.  Is my frustration normal for someone learning to read the written notes for the first time?

I figured that I could set the tempo way down, keep the pitch the same and play along, knowing I'm hitting the notes correctly and it would be rewarding as an ice cream cake in the middle of August.

But of course... if the point of learning is to encounter and move through this kind of frustration then I will continue to make my peace with the imperceptibly slow progress.  After all, there is no race to win here, I've got many years ahead of me to enjoy this. I just want to play this peice of music, it's one of the reasons I started playing violin and was so delighted with the FM site with the arrangement right here!!smile

If it comes down to it you can always Download Muse Score (It's free) and transpose the sheet music so that you can play it back to yourself in midi format.  Thats how I tend to find the general pacing and accenting for most music I play :D

Thanks Screetch, I've been playing the game a lot, and I need to play it more and not arrive at a conclusion that I'm ready for Vivaldi's concerto in A Major when I'm still staring blankly at a note drifting to the left, saying to myself... well it looks like that other note I just played... except this one's higher on the staff... hmmm... maybe it's D....ZONK nope, it's not D... how about F... ZONK.... hmmmm....

 

Thanks too Vince, I will get that program... I have to be patient with myself, I just learned notes predictably well not too long ago.  I am thinking about teaching a psychology course at the community college... just so I can get free tuition for the music courses they have there!  Now that's economics in action.

Mt. Fiddler, I will make how to videos, have playback files to practice with and the whole shebang. :-)
I'll make it as easy as possible.
