First off, very nice "do" Kevin; I think I have a few aunts and uncles that visit the same "salon"  roflol

Now that travel is done for me for a while, I can't wait to get started!  I haven't been able to touch my violin in 3 wks and I'm die'n to get back at 'er.bananabananabanana

And I just asked my daughter Brooke if she'd like to participate and she started laughing and said "what the hell, why not" and laughed some more.  She'll try to add a mando part and acoustic guitar part if that works for y'all.

Great Fred,

BTW, I'm seriously considering visiting S. Calif to see the NAMM show between the 24 - 27 with Michael. It's a Trade Fair for Musical Instrument merchants. The NAMM show takes place at the Anaheim Convention Center.

I would probably arrive on Monday and spend a week to see the sites and visit some people. :-)

Sounds like a great venue FM... wave up to N. Cali when you get there.  Cali will be a better state for a bit with such a cool fiddle dude in town..  gold_star

I practiced the Viola 1 part last night until my fingers hurt and my wife got inspired to hide in the back bedroom to get away from my attempts at double-stops. I'm thinking I'm not going to get those devilish duos down in time for the deadline. I can play the melodic line about 60% of the time, but only at half speed at present - and only if hitting the correct notes doesn't count.blink

At least I still have a whole month to work on it...

Whatever happened to your wife learning to play the violin?
She can play part 5 smile
I'll be posting that some time this week when I have time to record.

Sure, why not.  It's going to take me a year to get double stops down but, in the meantime I think I can handle Part 4.  I'll get busy on it right away.

 

I don't know if I can manage to make an actual video so I might have to send in just the audio. Once this is recorded and ready to be sent in what format is preferable ? Wav, mp3, ogg ?  I can deliver sound in any preferable format.

I think my wife doesn't want to get ahead of Son #2, and would rather wait to do his lessons "with" him when he enters the school orchestra in the fall. Just the same, she was talking about having Son #1 work with her a bit in the evenings this week. Either way, I don't see "Cabbage" as being in her personal time-line.frown

Actually, tell her "Good luck" with getting ahead of him. She will probably need the head start. Also, it's really good if she can give him some guidance though I imagine you are more than competent to do so now.

Glad to hear that she is jumping in. I'll be doing a part 5 for those absolute beginners, learn off the video. SUPER EASY. I want her video for the project. Maybe you guys can all four play it as a family. That would be real cool. smile

Actually all the couples here should play together too, that is if you guys can work together. ;-)

I'll have to see if my wife can play this on her flutophone and my daughter on her didgeridoo.

Ive printed the music for all four and will start with the fourth part and work my way up. My daughter will also be participating as will (probably) another friend. My bridge is flatter than the average bear so double stops will be easier for me. regards, Rob. Incedentally, that one month I took bluegrass lessons..........started with the cabbage. Kinda funny for me, already have a head start on the shuffle and the tune.

I warned my wife yesterday about your "expectations," so she had me put tapes on her violin and had Son-of-a-Cheese walk her through some basic exercises on how to hold the violin and bow, etc. We had her playing "Mary had a little lamb" before we were done. We're waiting to see what the Violin 5 piece looks like. Hopefully, your instructional video will instill some confidence in her to join in the project.

out of interest, "bile" in English has a certain meaning!

do you mean by any chance, in left-hand side of the big pond speak "boil"

 

I would hate to have to do the "other" on Youtube, sprend, FM or anywhere else for that matter, lol

Consider the original source of the lyrics. "Bile 'em" Was an attempt to capture the regional dialect of the folks who most likely sang the song originally. I doubt it would have the same feel of authenticity to properly enunciate the words or even apply proper grammatical rules. 

"Boil those cabbages down into a tender state of edibility. Bake those biscuits into a state of proper completion of cooking, as indicated by a desired shade of brown."

 

Too many syllables, I'm thinking ... cool

Too funny, its slang at its finest. Kinda like listening to the swamp people on tv.

There are people around here that you would have no idea what they said when they talk. 

I have to translate for my wife.  They speak very monotone and run words together.
