Has anyone heard the song Altar Particular by Maria Gadu? Its a combination of Bossa Nova guitar and some beautiful violin. I would love to play the violin part but not so great at transcribing. Can anyone transcribe it, or post a video of playing the violing part on youtube?

 

Thanks!

A great Mediterranean sultry feel to it. Like her hit 'ne me quitte pas"
Good luck with your request, this would be a great tune to play with a guitar.

I was born with nothing,
and to my surprise I still have most of it left!

Ok, so I decided to just learn this song myself. I have scored and recorded the first part which you can find attached. The rhythm I have scored is probably not perfect, I guess there is a kind of swing feel to the way its played.

The song is not hard to play once you've figured it out. Let me know if anyone would like me to do the rest, or a video of how to play it. Since I went to the effort of doing it myself I guess I may as well share!

I apologise for the recording quality, its played on a borrowed violin with no shoulder rest and recorded on my laptop mic...
