Arrrr @Barry ye ol' landlubber - no bad fer an ol' river rat like yersel' who's ne'er sailed 'pon the high-seas nor had the wind in yer sails - but - arrrrr me brave lad - well done !!!  ( ??? well, I tried... ) roflol

Nice work !

@Ferret - still a-likin' them Spanish Ladies, aye !  Ye seem to have an understandable fondness fer them!  

And talking (almost) seriously - Cap'n, come the 19th, are you somehow making an arrangement with the International TLAP Day folks to give them links to our stuff ?   Just curious ( I guessed that may be part of the plan, and that's why I blatantly advertised the FM site ! ) - let us know....  Cheers, from yer scurvy bilge-rat o' a deck-hand, Grey Beard.  ( Ye even got a special mention in me credits, Cap'n - I be a thinkin' it be time fer ye to split open that cask o' special brandy ye got hidden away in yer cabin and share it wi' yer deck-hands! )

... final processing of Grey Beard's submission is under way....  then with my so called "broadband" it's going to take over 2 hrs to upload to youtube (shiver-me-timbers lads, 'tis only 8 mins long f'r goodness' sake)... be patient... I'll update ye all once 'tis done... (or if it actually completes....  who knows... )

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

@BillyG 

Ahoy Grey Beard you scurvy ol' sea dog. Aye, that was my intent. I'll be gettin' back to Cap'n Chumbucket at the ITLAPD website and be givin' he the link to this here project.

I don't be knowin' about the the brandy, but I 'do' have some fine whiskey that I've been stilin' down in the rope locker. A mighty fine drop it be. Aaaaar. Any of me scurvy crew be welcome to drop anchor at my cabin and be imbibin' a dram or two. Aaaaaar.

And so ye be submittin' an epic 8 minute presentation. I can't wait to be seein' it. I'll be waiting with baited breath (am goin' to have to be eatin' less of them kippers fish) Aaaaaaaar

Shiver-me-timbers and swash-me-buckle - that took 16 HOURS to upload... not kidding...  anyway - here's the completed submission - if you saw the original first song already - just leap to 4 minutes in to find Blow then man down, then New York Girls...

@BillyG 

Aaaaaaar

Grey Beard ye old bilge rat. I be apologin' fer bein' tardy in commentin' of ye presentation. Sorry bout that. Aaaaaar

That be an epic piece of playin'. I don't be thinkin' anyone of this vessel has ever put so much into entertainin' this scury crew. Thank ye matey.

I be fond of those tunes and you did some mighty fine playin' there. It bought back memories of pillagin' plunderin' and buxom wenches. I almost had a tear in me eye. Aaaaaar

I'll be tryin' to post another tune me self if I can. Of late me bowin' arm seems to have taken on a life of its own and it just ain't co-operatin' with me at all.

Thank ye again ye ol' sea dog.

Arrrrrrr Cap'n - no need to apologize to yer scurvy deck-hand - but thankee muchly, ye be very, very welcome.  

'twas naught but a pleasure fer meself tae be a tryin' me best.  The poor ol' FM Concert violin ( ... pause for an "Unashamed Advertisement": The FiddlerMan Concert Violin is well good!  Damn, I love it - and I'm only starting to really get to know it - wow - I'm so pleased with it )  got a real hammerin' wi the New York Girls tune there - as did the ol' FM CF bow - there wis hairs a brakin' on the bow an' rosin dust flyin' aw-where- man ah wis doon in the dirt as they say an' enjoyin' ev'ry second o' it ( Scottish pirate vocabulary and accent there ! ) 

Methinks that ol' bowin' arm o' yers musta bin wrapped overly tight around them thar Spanish Ladies o' yours..  aye, that'd most likely be yer problem Cap'n...   

Let loose the dogs of war ( well, the Spanish Ladies ) Cap'n, and bring us another tune!  Ahhh, the ol' deep soundin' viole, that'd be great to hear more of - damn - it really does sound good !   Bring it on !

Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr !

Arrrrr me beauty @coolpinkone - LMAO @ bile scum sea rats - arr, ye got it bad an' I be a blamin' that ol' sea dog Cap'n Ferret fer all this here bad talkin' - just like meself here - there be no hope fer any o' us, we're lost souls on the pirate vessel FiddlerMan - we're doomed I tells ye, we're doomed..... !!!!

 I got yer expression there on yer Skye Boat Song - it really came across - now ye gotta do the same but 10 times more fer yer Blow The Man Down - get in there - bust a few bow hairs - the fiddle can take it !  It looks like a delicate instrument but it can take a bit of hammering !!!!   You won't break it (unless you get to the point of throwing it out from the top of a sky-scraper).   Yeah me beauty !  We're awaiting yer next performance !

Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Heck, it's worth another arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr !!!!   Go for it !!!! The 19th is approaching - the more the merrier ye wicked wench !
