 Here it is - the very first [as far as I know] shoutbox composed song for the Fiddlerman website. Now we just need music to set the lyrics to. Jim? anybody?

 

I'm sitting in a corner, playing fiddle songs - watching while the chatbox keeps scrolling on

I don't know the tune, but I play another line - I keep the bow straight and steady every time

 I'm sitting in the corner playing fiddle songs, hoping some other fiddlers will come along

Oooh, I like it.  This is clearly the beginning of the next Fiddlerman International Youtube project: group composition and performance.

If I could see the Chatbox
I'm sure I'd join in
Why should they be the only ones
Making all this din

(becoming the blues all of a sudden)

I was born with nothing,
and to my surprise I still have most of it left!

Some call it a fiddle

Others, a violin

I don't care either way

Not playing is a sin....

My hand is almost slapping my thigh already!

This to me is a country song absolutely. Who sings here?

My hand is slapping my thigh

My bow just went really high

I can't find the right string

I'm too drunk to make this thing sing!

Definitely a country song, lol

Oh dear, Dio! I read your first post, and only after reading the replies did I realise that was your song verse, and not just words in a post! Duh! LOL

Well, here's what popped into my head after reading them : just bashed out a first take ...

Hold on ya'll..... its not a true country song until we add lyrics about a dog dying, throwing momma from the train, going mudding in the rusted pick-up truck and fishing. banana

We could go a little less morbid and just have the dog run away.  No doubt it was to escape the screeching. tongue

OK,we have lyrics and a tune - now who has a good country singing voice to put it all together?

 

serenade

Don't make me sing!! That is a fate worse than death [for the listener, that is - I have no shame, as has already been established].

Ha ha ha - I was just speculating on the shoutbox with KindaScratchy as to whether you would volunteer! Study up on Jim's tune and give us a demo

Ok, I will... Ready to leave in a bit for a gig tonight then this weekend I need to go through He's a Pirate project as I have not even listened to that song yet. And need to get a couple videos in quick. This coming week I'll go back through this post and put in some vocals and hope my wifey Sandra will too. She sings like nobody's business 😉
