StoneDog is now in possession of the TRAVELING FIDDLE in Warrendale, Pennsylvania. :-)
Barry's idea is that we should all play the same basic part but play it our own way as they do in jam sessions. As long as we all follow a click track we will be fine.
Can you be specific as to the help that you want? I'd be happy to do what I can. I hope there will be some progress posts as there were with the Xmas Project. Makes learning more fun.

Hit it pretty hard last week , starting to come together. Between work and Christmas the old violin is getting a bit of a rest this week!
Is that a good thing or bad? Do you even get any time off for the holidays?
Hey everyone . I know many are busy with the holidays upon us, but I was just wondering how everyone is getting along with the project.
I've learned this tune. But i need more time to pactice. Now i'm a little busy with our concer in music school ( i'm gonna play with little kids and my teacher tomorrow =/ OMG! ) But after that i'll be ready to post a video after New Year… No days off untill 10/01/12 hard times LOL!…
I'm away from home (i.e. my instruments..) but I have done a slowed down version of a guitar only backing track that may be helpful. It is 109BPM(ish) which is around the speed Barry played in his demo. I count in 2 bars so you can get the pickup notes. Let me know if this was the feeling you are going for Barry and I can record the whole 4 times, OR we can use Oliver's as it sounds pretty good already
PS. it is 440 Hz=A tuning
Here's my first try of RED WING =) Later i'm planning to add some double-stops…
That was fantastic Naska.
You've really come a long way. Only comment I have for you right now is that your left elbow swings out to the left from time to time. Try to keep it straight under the fiddle unless you go up in the positions in which case you would swing under to the right to come around the violin for the reach. As you can imagine, if you need to go up in your positions on top of swinging to the left your arm would be working real hard.
Your right hand wrist and finger flexibility is a model for all to check out.
You should be proud of this one.
Thanks for the post. Keep up the great work.
Red Wing? Aaahhh! (Bob Wills holler) I do a good Johnny Gimble style Red Wing with the extra "rolls" and some double stops. Pretty tune.
@Naska- Nicely done!
…your left elbow swings out to the left from time to time. Try to keep it straight under the fiddle unless you go up in the positions in which case you would swing under to the right to come around the violin for the reach…
Thank You! I'll try to. My teacher says exactly the same… But it's quite uncomfortable to keep it straight under without swinging out when i play on A or especially on E but i'll keep trying…
That was wonderful Mad Wed! I hope to get something posted on here tonight.
A little history where Red Wing was derived from (originally written in the late 1800s by Robert Shumann called The Happy Farmer then music for Red Wing written by Kerry Mills and lyrics by Thurland Chattaway in 1907):
Very nice, Naska! I better go practice…
