I appreciate the encouragement Mr Fiddlerman- but the click track is way too fast for me-  I have been practicing every day, and maybe something will come of it-  I keep seeing progress, but…………..

I understand about using the click track, and recording- none of that is an issue for me- cept that my internal mic died on computer- using an external one, but not so sure of the sound quality as of yet.  That is a smaller problem than the tempo of the click track LOL

I will keep trying till the very last second !  (I promise)

I swear- someday I will be playing as well as my imagination

I still don't know that I will be good enough at this to bother with making a video, but I'm going to give it some practice. It's a fun song to try and the videos are a big help. 🙂

Thanks for the videos Pierre - very helpful. I still can't click my fingers and get back to the fingerboard in the right place in time though so I'll have to use an alternative.

My wife has volunteered to click her fingers on the video, but doesn't want any other part showing. lol

I need a bit more practice before I get the video cam out.

Yay! I just got to know about this project, I'm late but hopefully I can still learn the track in time. ^^ Sounds like a wonderful project!

@Jim Dunleavy She could be Thing, then all she'd have to be is a hand 🙂

I'm getting these parts down OK including the snaps.

But, I'm having trouble with my hands getting too dry and this makes it hard to keep my snapping fingers going.

Since this is something that is bound to find its way into sound studios, I'm thinking there must be a trick to keeping your fingers moist for good snapping.

Does anyone have any tricks or solutions for keeping your hands moist for good snapping sound from the fingers?  I've tried a hand moisturizer, but that's too slippery and so the fingers quit snapping with the kind I tried.

PopFiddle, there are hand lotions that work great but I'm not sure which to recommend. You need to be careful not to get greasy hands too.
I tried an Aloe hand cream some time back that was fantastic but I don't know where it is. A quick amazon search found me this one but I'm not positive that it would work. Maybe someone has a better suggestion.

OK everyone. Please don't be late with these submissions. In the past I have been able to prolong the deadline but this time I am leaving for a 2 week vacation on board a transatlantic ship. I won't be able to get the video mixed in time for Halloween if you don't submit on time or early. 🙂

This is going to be a GREAT one. And PLEASE, dress up.... Let's not be boring.

I'm not going to be able to manage the snaps, but I hope to get something submitted before you get on that ship, Fiddlerman! I might submit a separate video with snaps or something percussive.

That will work perfectly Leanna. Stomp seems to work well otherwise. You can even stomp left foot, right foot.

Stomps!  Yes, I forgot you mentioned that in your tutorial videos.  I can manage that! 🙂

....

I think I figured out what my problem was.  I wash my hands before playing and sometimes for the second or third time in an afternoon (for good cause).  Washing your hands with soap tends to leave them dry. Now when I wash my hands shortly before playing, I just use water, not soap.

I like to leave my submissions to the last day so that I can have as much practice as possible.  I'm in California and we have a time zone difference.  Would you like a day earlier to make your schedule?  I'm sure an afternoon of practice won't make that much difference.

You might consider the time zone difference in your next project schedule.

I am so behind on this one, it's not even funny.  September is incredibly busy for me, so I have not had any time to work on it. I will have to cram this weekend to make the deadline. Arggh! Hope I can pull it off...especially since this is a key in which I have never played fiddle.
