Is that you in all three parts or are you only the violin? You sound great on the fiddle especially because this was from 15 years ago!
Thanks Jacques! the piano, bass & drums are coming from either my Yamaha QY100 or Roland PMA 5 music sequencers (I can't remember which). I'm strumming the chord progression with my telecaster (that's why there is a space before the violin starts, I'm putting the tele on it's stand and picking up the EV from it's holder on the mic boom stand...that's how I had to do it live)....you can't here the guitar that well.

This is really great. Since it's all you here - I'll say your better than Frank Sinatra.
Yeahh !!! More fine work!
I have some stuff I did from mid 1980's - similar sort of idea but different genre - recorded and mixed down and mixed-down again on a 4-track "Tascam" tape deck/mixer. Trying to recall exactly - Drums (electronic drum kit/box), rhythm guitar acoustic, lead guitar electric, keyboard melody line, keyboard chords, vocals yeah that was it - 6 tracks on a 4-track deck - aye - those were the days ! I recently got them off the finalized recording (while I still actually OWN a normal cassette player !!!!!) onto digital and dumped on SoundCloud - but there's no violin ( I was trying to bring back "what was GOOD (to me) in the 70's to compensate for the lack of slow-rock-ballads in the 80's" LMAO) - so I won't clutter up your thread with them here! Just saying - because I well understand and appreciate the effort that goes in to doing these things....
Ain't technology a blast !
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes.
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
@BillyG: Thanks for the encouragement, I appreciate it. and thanks to Mark.
yeah, recording can be quite a chore. I took my yamaha Qy100 sequencer in last year to get the back up battery replaced, as I was getting a warning on the LCD. The guy at Long & McQuade was quite impressed with the unit, said it had great sound. They don't sell them anymore. It has a lot of editing capability's you can go into any pre-set patch and change the bass line, drums, keys, guitar...anything. The machine offers about half a dozen variations of each that will still fit with the pre-set. I spent many long hours finding just the right ones. and of course there can be several different pre-sets for each song. But I could plug that thing into the Calgary Saddle Dome sound system, and it would sound great.
as for recording, I must have had half a dozen takes for each of these songs. I'd invariably mess up somewhere. It comes down to choosing the take with the least screw-ups.
So you're saying that you don't have any fiddle on digital?
