It's time to discuss new ideas for the next Fiddlerman group project.

Someone on youtube suggested Pachalbel's Canon and I think that could be perfect. At the same time I want to do a fiddlers project. Please leave suggestions here. I was thinking Bile Em Cabbage Down or The Devil Went To Georgia.

Bile Em would probably be easier. We can do one project or both at once. Ideas please......

I also remember Barry's topic Lets write an Irish tune and tried to write some Irish tune for B part, but i liked FiddlerMan's - so dumped all my stuff LOLroflfacepalm

Though i agreed with Canon in D very-very-very much - always wanted to play it. And i thought as well about:

- He's a Pirate (Hans Zimmer) (i don't know who, but someone asked about sheet music of it already) it contains many parts - so could be played by many players =)

- Sad Romance (But can hardly imagine it with many parts - weird but fun duncecap)

Those are pop music and everybody know them =)

As for me - Canon is the great idea for project and i'd like to play itdrooling, but there are lots of it played and mixed...but i've never seen He's a Pirate yet played that way. party

 

That what i think..... birthday_balloon

Canon is one of the best songs ever! That would be very pretty to do. smile

He's a Pirate would be fun too. I love that song! xD

 

My song suggestion would be the theme for Rohan from LOTR. Or In Dreams.

canon in D has parts to it but its pretty much the same part played at different starting points. I'm ok with it though

 

Hes a pirate is really epic! I played it in school, my string orchestra joined up with the wind orchestra and it sounded amazing!

 

Sad romance is really hard for a group project. I tried to play it with a friend, me playing the melody and her trying to harmonize, its pretty hard to get more string parts in that one too.

I think LOTR soundtracks are pretty good but takes a lot of patience with the timing. 

 

Hans zimmer soundtracks are quite epic and he has composed a lot of awesome songs, they tend to sound amazing in orchestras.

 

Something to consider would be disney soundtracks like lion king or mulan or like a disney mash up orchestra style! dancing

Any one recognize these lyrics.

 

Old Ben Wheeler was the next in line

He could fiddle all the bugs off a sweet potato vine.

He could fiddle wind He could fiddle fire

He could make a fiddle flow like a low land river.

I refuse to play Devil went down to georgia as many real fiddlers do also. The tune was stolen from Vasser Clements known as "Lonesome fiddle blues".  They did reach an agreement after some time the story goes. As a song writer and a fiddler I refuse to acknowledge plagiarism.

How about "Bile Em Cabbage Down" then? I figured since you put up some lessons already. I would like to have a fiddle piece as well as classical. You probably have some great old time fiddle ideas for the group.

We could do a mash-up of "The Marriage of Figaro" with the theme music from the TV Show "Divorce Court."

On the fiddle style fiddle project I say we go with "Red Wing" unless we get more suggestions.

On the more classical project I vote for Hans Zimmer's "He's a Pirate".

When I find time I'll start writing parts for "He's a Pirate"

I'll do the fiddle style project after "He's a Pirate" unless anyone knows of an arrangement of "Red Wing" with multiple parts?

I just listened to several versions of Red Wing. Some seemed real easy and others just hard with all double stops.  I think I'll need Barry's help on this with the bowing.

 

Barry if you could can you put up a quick video of how you play Red Wing.

 

Either way I'm up for learning it.

Yep, i vote for those two too! =)

About the Red Wing - i agree with Kevin! Barry, we need a lesson! =) i'm still pretty bad with double stops (it made me paranoid by tuning my violin - i always think that i'm out of tune LOL even if check with synthesizer roflrofl)

OK, no parts and we don't have to wait for me to do the other project. When enough people feel ready I'll be happy to mix it. Your help is much appreciated Barry.

Why not tame the double stops by writing one of the notes as a harmony line?

i.e. a "double stop" part of single notes?

OK, so whats the procedure?

 FM are you writing parts for the first one, and Barry are you choosing music for the second one?  Is there a certain arrangment for red wing we are going to use?

If so how can I get the music for red wing?

That Christmas project has me all fired up!devil-violin
