By that I mean 1 hour to work on it. It's about a minute long.
Anyways, 8 tracks! New personal record! (Also, not a bit of violin. Sorry, but I just can't play it. I put in some really high notes to make it seem like a violin.)

Good job Panda. It's a deceptively difficult piece despite its slow beginning. Once it gets rolling into the 16th note section, it's pretty challenging. Practice makes perfect though, and I imagine once it's been practiced a few hundred times, it will seem fairly easy. I presume that you've seen the Korean kid (on YouTube) playing it on his electric guitar in his bedroom, amazing, but I can't imagine how many hours a day that kid must practice.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. ~Herm Albright

Check out Fiddlerman's projects ... we did it!
I've got a copy of Audacity, but I'm damned if I can work out how to use it!

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

Good going, Panda! An hour to get a minute of music isn't doing bad at all when you're doing it with 8 tracks!

Nothing wrong with doing all or part of it with electric guitar. It gets you some experience using the software and maybe gets some ideas cooking for other stuff you might want to record.

Now, if you *want* to do at least some of this piece with some violin.. Well, you're on about the best place in the world for that. As luck would have it, that canon was a group project here on a while back, and the parts for it are still up..

Pierre did some great work on a nice sounding arrangement of the piece, and there's sheet music, audio files and even video tutorials that he worked up for the group project which would be just a goldmine for anyone wanting to learn this piece.

Violin part 4 is real easy, and you could learn it to record a violin track and then do the rest of the piece with guitar. You could also save the project with all 8 (or more) of the parts you've already recorded still on separate tracks, and add in the other parts with violin as you get comfortable with the piece. Great thing about multi-track software is that you can record some stuff and then come back days, weeks or months later and re-do parts as you learn and get comfortable on an instrument.

This was all on acoustic. I would've done it on electric, but the intonation is shot on it right now.bunny-headbang
