Thanks Barry, that looks like fun.  A very simple tune (I hope) to play.

Leave it with me for a few weeks and I'll work on it.

If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.

That was lovely, Barry. Thanks for sharing it.

 

I'd like to play some tunes like this, myself, but will have to transpose them to the viola/alto clef for my purposes.

......yep, that was the Cremona. Cant wait to hear it when I put some "real" strings on it

Which strings are you putting on it Barry? Have you tried the Daddario Helicore?

Cool, should be interesting to hear the difference. These strings are far superior to any other steel core strings that I know of. I think it's because of the multi steel strands rather than one solid steel core. I tried them a while back but felt that the medium tension was to light. I may have to try the heavy tension Helicores next time. Which tension are you using?

Just got finished playing this about a hundred times. Lots of fun!
On the viola, however, it's more of a 3-finger jig.

Where can I find the guitar backing track?

Well, as written in the viola piece above, it's played on the C and G strings, an octave below the fiddle part. I'm mostly playing with fingers 1, 2 & 4.

It does indeed become a two-finger piece when I take it up an octave and play on the D and A strings, though.

If I didn't have a house full of kids freshly-arrived home from school (read: wound up like monkeys on acid and twice as noisy), I'd break out the camera to show you what I'm doing. Perhaps sometime this weekend...

Sorry, that was my fault. I have it on Finale so I'll transpose down up an octave when I get the chance.

No worries, FM. I like playing it both ways. I wouldn't replace the lower-octave version, though. Keep it as a companion piece.
