One of  my own tunes again, with a sensible name this time :)

 

It's quite short, and I'm working on another part which uses the bass strings more.

 

I could do with someone to control the recording gear, so I'd be free to concentrate completely on playing.

 

Here goes, anyway.

Another classic Mr. Jim! Love your style and your 5 string. I've been watching your releases, and am a fan of your youtube account. As Naska stated, love the glissandos that you usually incorporate. I think you're right that some bass countermelody or harmony would be good for it.

 

By the way, wanted to mention my favorite of yours so far is "Tornado"

Nice tune Mr. Jim! My earphones were unplugged so it played over the speakers and my 6 yo was up and dancing to it.

Could you put together a small video of some of the figures/phrases from this song? Id really be interested in being able to replicate them. I love your chord work, great song.

Thanks, Chorlick.

 

Actually, I've just started putting together a comprehensive DVD (eventually to be for sale on my site), wholly on the 'piano boogie' style of fiddling. It's quite complex, and there's a lot of technical groundwork to be done before learning any of the tunes.

 

So, I'm afraid it's not really practical to do a vid at this time. Maybe we could work something out if you contact me at my website.

 

Fiddlerman, if you're reading this, it was not my intention to use your site to advertise anything, as I only put up the audio as a 'share', but at the same time I did not think it was polite to ignore Chorlick's post, or fair to make contact in private. I hope this is OK :)

 

Mr Jim

Jim,

Perfectly fine. Please feel free. We really enjoy your stuff here. If you make sales through this site that is great.
