Great job, PF! I remember playing that tune when I was in a fife and drum corps and thought it was hard. I think it sounds better on the fiddle. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for posting this!

Was wondering about that...LOL, didnt think it sounded anything like soldiers joy. Not sure if we can edit titles, think FM may have to do that

Ive been working on soldiers joy, easy version also at the same time so I had SJ on the brain. I didnt realize it until tonight. oh, well.

It didn't sound like the Soldier's Joy that I remembered from my fife and drum days, either.ย I guess that's why I thought it sounded better on the fiddle.

I really like both vids.ย  Truly remarkable.ย  Soon...soon I will have a video up, just not enough hours in the day to practice AND make a vid.ย 

-Sigh-

But until I get the vid up... I can listen to all of your fine playing!cheers

As soon as I play it to a satisfactory level I will, it's not ready right now I started it only some days ago. My progression video for 3 months will be about Allegretto (Beethoven) and Riley's that I promised to a friend ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for the post picklefish. I'll change the title for you. You will be able to fix your own posts and such after 99 posts. Won't need to do math either. smile
