Hahahah - another FB forum ( Adult Amateur String Players ) have frequent "events".  The one for this week was Tennessee Waltz.    Well, truth to tell, that was about the 3rd or 4th tune I tried to pick out on the fiddle.    Anyways - it is NOT a tune I come back to very often at all now - so I just "leaped in there", turned on the mic and cam and run this one off...  NOT my best by any means - just fun....   Thinking about it now, two years on from first playing it, yup - some nice double stops would work really well  -  but that's for another day...   so here yah go ( oh, in the second part, the backing track is a MIDI file - apparently by "Gecadero" - just found on the internet - but it was in C and I transposed it to D ) - anyway - that's just detail -

 

EDIT :  Hahahah - YESSSS - it ( the first part ) is a bit "sharp on the ears" - I AM going to take the steel preludes off and change to the new FM strings soon ( I like the steel ones for the nasty fiddle tunes, LOL )

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes.

With violins there is no fretting over the music.

LOL - well thank you @OldOgre - but honestly - it was just an "off the cuff" kinda thing done in a straight single take for the event.  

Personally,  I was "not much more than marginally happy about it" and of course could have done better.   Nevertheless, it's all for fun as far as I am concerned, so, it's all good...  Thanks for taking the time to listen to it !thumbs-up 

Fiddle on OO - that's all that matters !

Thanks for sharing that. Great job Bill.

Tennessee Waltz is a fun piece and never grows old. 🙂

Good job Bill, and I like the ornamentals... I tried to bang this one out myself but I forget the ending and playing by ear leaves me a little lost... Ah well I'll get to it.

Nice Billy.

LOL......   Thanks guys.,....    What WAS cool about it was, as I mentioned - it really was "off the cuff" and an unplanned, unpracticed, single take, for a post in another place.   What's good about it for me is that I just said to myself - aye, I know that one, let's do it....   And that's how it turned out - happy enough about it here, for what it was.....  Thanks for watching...  It can only  get better!!!
