I might be to blame for the sheet music not being right. I just wrote it by ear.
Yes Barry, I agree. Learning to play by ear is great for many reasons. Looks better when you perform and one can often give more feelings in their performance when not focusing on the music.
I believe also that it is extremely beneficial to be able to read music as well.
Particularly when it is desired to keep maybe a dozen people on the "same page" . What happens if I and maybe ten people play their favorite separate versions at the same time?
Fact is that I probably wouldn't play the written music anyhow but it is as least a common starting place and I know what everybody else is likely doing. (which I would also know live)
However, I'm sure that the "sound engineer" will manage to sort it all out.
I will sort out the music here with MGN guitar chord changes but that's not the easiest way.
I'm glad to hear all this about rhythm because that must mean a click track is not far away.
My "tricks" depend somewhat on tempo and I have learned on this Forum that a click track is needed for recording because a simple metronome might be off.
If not an actual click track then how about a tempo for practicing to match the click track when that is officially released ?
(the MGN guitar track?)
Sounds like its time to get the click/rhythm track together and set a date Pierre. The group sounds like they are ready for action.
Ive aready began to get familiar with "He's a Pirate" so maybe its time to wrap up the fiddle jam and get to pirating

I think it's time for me to give it a rest with Red Wing for the night. I was sitting here playing with my electric and went to get up and get something from the printer. The cord was wrapped around my foot so the violin went flying and then my little Honeytone amp went next. Gracefull I'm NOT.
