Sounds simple enough for me. At least for Violin 1. I'll start practicing with it, this will be the first time ever I've done anything with something even close to a metronome. I tried the keyboard metronome while playing a keyboard when I was much much younger, that didn't work out well at all, but I hope this will. 🙂
Should we sit or stand? Or does it matter?
Now, to find something to dress up with...

Wow, 5 pages in and this is the first I'm seeing it. Do posts on this thread not show up on the new posts area at the bottom of the page?
Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.
You can do as many parts as you like! Some of us do multiple parts. That way, we have a variation and not everyone doing the exact same thing. Just be sure to use the click track (in ear and not audible on your video). And as I recall from the last project, I think he prefers to have the video running during the countdown because it's easier to get all the videos in sync that way. I'm sure he'll pop in here and correct me if I'm wrong.
Let the bow flow.
I am half way though my math problems at this point- that is the good news LOL
I just listened to all 4 videos, LOL- and i think there is a problem-- it sounds something like this when I tell someone that just bought their first computer- just copy/paste the URL into a new email !!!
I am so GRATEFUL for the videos- I might be able to do #3 or something, but I really still don't know about the speed- THAT is the real problem for me- I really wasn't planning on adding the clicking at all- I was pretty sure that would happen somehow (I giggled)
So, THANKS, @Fiddlerman - but if you don't see me, it's because I tried (really hard- based on my goals and progress), but…… Still working on it 🙂
7 !!!! 6 plus 1 is SEVEN !!!
I swear- someday I will be playing as well as my imagination
Thanks for the walk-through Pierre.
I have an apology to make in case I misled anyone earlier on .
Way back on the first page of this thread somewhere, someone asked about the swung notes. I gave an "example" of "swung eighths" which was unfortunately incorrect in this context - they are in fact as FM says swung triplets - not exactly the same thing. The "swing" description I gave was more specific to certain forms of interpretation for some fiddle tunes.... I should have more carefully read the instruction on the sheet... Sorry about that !!!
I've been practicing in the way I described it and now it's "stuck in my head" LOL - so I have a wee bit of mental-correction to do - although I suppose, since the first two of the triplets are the same note, it would pretty much pass muster.... grrrrrrrrrrrrrr
And thanks for all the other general playing tips there @Fiddlerman ! As they say - a picture's worth a thousand words.
Talking of pictures - for those of you who are interested in the "math" and timing differences - here's what it amounts to (with no accentuation shown on any of the triplet notes - with my incorrect (for this piece) analyses shown as the middle bar - the rightmost bar, as I now understand it, is what Pierre was getting at... and since all of these triplets have the same first two notes, it is merely a "notational convenience" and makes the score less cluttered). If this is already well-understood to you, then ignore my ramblings - I like to note things down to fix them in my mind.... LOL. Oh - and if I've STILL got it wrong, correct me please !!!
EDIT: Well, you know me by now - this came back to mind later in the day - were we to WANT to get closer to what I originally wrongly suggested ( the middle bar in the first image above ) - and this works because the first-two-notes of the swung triplet happen to be the same - and just as an aside - a closer representation to my original understanding would be to show the first two notes of the triplet as slurred... see - I just cannot leave it alone ! ROFL. ( Well, it's all about my own understanding of notation, just ignore me ) - the only difference in this case would be a fairly subtle timing difference.... interesting... well, to me it is... LOL. .
... even more clearly, now, it is probably why in the advice given at the head of the score, it is shown as below - and for those of us on the Coursera FOMT course- well - you would have thought I should have seen that from the start.... oh well...
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
Oh my, my rhythm was waaay off. I hope I can break the habit of how I was playing it and get it right in time to record! Thank you so much for the videos, Fiddlerman, my playing would've been a disaster without them.
