Strings on Sunday - revival !

SoS has been a bit quiet quiet recently - I've had too many other things to do - but it is now time for a revival of interest !

I have a StreetJelly session set up for Sunday 14th May - 8:00pm BST / 3:00pm EST

Anyone who wants to join in and play - just do the usual - pick a non-overlapping 30 minute slot on SJ, put it in the SJ "Schedule" so we all know about it, and join in !!!!

Hope to see you there!

I'll try to pop in and listen, but can't play this time as we'll be packing to go on a trip on Monday.

Great to see it being revived though - it's been too long! 🙂

I want to join in 🙂 I posted on facebook that I see you on the calendar for the 21, not the 14, so I wasn't sure if you scheduled wrong or had to change your day.

ROFL : OMG yes it was intended to be THIS Sunday, 14th - finger must have slipped on the calendar-picker....   I'll leave the 21st scheduled as well anyway - I'll go add tomorrow's ( 14th ) show....  WELL SPOTTED - thanks, @damfino

This Sunday ( 21st May 2017 ) we have a very special Strings on Sunday on streetjelly.

I'm scheduled for 8:00pm GMT ( UK time ) - probably 3:00 EST and I'll be just doing my usual thing - BUT - right after me, at 8:30pm is Mr Jim dancing aka @Worldfiddler who will be both demonstrating and playing The Travelling Fiddle -

Unlike most of us beginners, Mr. Jim is not to be missed !

Hope you can make it ! bunny_pole_dancerbunny_pole_dancerbunny_pole_dancer

And, as ever, if anyone else wants to join in our usual Strings-on-Sunday thing, just schedule a SJ slot after Jim... (or any time on Sunday that suits you.....)

Yes, I recommend seeing Jim in action. 🙂

I'm sure it will be entertaining and interesting. 🙂 Hope I can catch it.

@BillyG My aim is to join in on Sunday. I'm fighting a cold or allergies, not sure which, so not sure where my brain will be at by Sunday, haha, but I want to do a show  🙂

I hope to join in the festivities.  I have my calendar marked.  I don't have a polished set... but If I can join in I might, or just watch. 1st-place

Hope you can both make it. Get well soon damfino.... Hard to tell the difference between colds and allergies now a days..... Toni, I don't think anyone concerns themselves with it being polished, though I realize it's normal to be self conscious. I know I am. 🙂

I've been around people with bad colds for a few weeks, and spending lots of time outside, so not sure which got the better of me, haha. I scheduled a show anyway, and if I feel too crummy I'll just cancel it, but I'm planning to play.

@coolpinkone I've never had a polished set list. I just play what I feel like my fingers are warmed up enough to do, and if/when I fumble I either try again, or move on to a different tune, haha. I almost always open up with Harvest Home since I can play that without thinking at all, and gives me something to do while I wait for people to join the audience, haha.

@damfino You are right... I have songs.  Usually I polish them up a bit for Street Jelly.

What I mean is that I play songs about 10-15 songs.. over and over and how I like them.  Usually before Street Jelly I will pull up the sheet to see if I have been playing a wrong note... or see how bad the timing has gotten.  Because playing alone with no guide / or back ground music does lead to own's own interpretation.

But I have been alternating 2-3 songs in my practice session... besides after Mr. Jim.. I mean.. who'd be watching me.  🙂

Cheers.

It went fine Pierre !  🙂 

I caught Jim's show - and yes - educational and instructive !   Thank you @Worldfiddler 

Sadly, I missed most of @damfino - my PC was acting crazy ( I think it had something to do with some video-processing that was running in the background - I thought it would be good to record Mr Jim's show for the Travelling Fiddle thread, and my machine was clunking away doing something (brightness equalization or whatever) with the recording.... )

Anyway - the next Strings on Sunday is approaching - I've scheduled, as ever at 8pm UK / 3pm EST - as ever, anyone who wants to join-in is always welcome - just schedule a non-overlapping 30-minute (or whatever) slot, anytime on Sunday !

Sounds like fun! Glad to hear it. Hope a lot of fiddlers join.

@BillyG You didn't miss anything with my show, haha. My fingers did not want to behave and kept playing whatever they felt, haha.

I'll have to go schedule a show for this Sunday 🙂

Yup - been kind of quiet on SoS for a while - largely my fault for being so busy and not promoting it or participating - but then again - life happens !

Good get-together last night (well, it was night-time here ) with Rob Van Neil, Barry Nelson, Amanda Anderson and myself - good fun as ever - and THANK YOU folks hats_off

Now life has kind of quietened down for me, I'll try my best to more actively "manage" and promote these SoS events....
