Check out the 2021 Fiddlerman “White Christmas” Group Project.
I know @JohnG working in ragland road.. thought this may be of interest and shared here instead of blog.. I believe the melody of ragland road based on this tune. Just sharing another vocal version of melody is all..
To me...one of the best instrumental versions..
my favorite version Ragland Road
just tune talk..
@JohnG thats never the intention when sharing the PRO versions...I just like 'em thought you would too.
the first dawning of day...the words in that actually are a 911 rememberance..ill let you search for the older dawning if you want although many different versions written to same melody which is an older like really old not this century traditonal aire.
yeah i know what you mean on time variations...especially on these type songs. just basically losing any timing and playing like a solo singer or whatever would. alot of the aires do that kinda thing. Martin Hayes is a master at this i think..you may not be familiar with sailors bonnet but he did that kinda thing here..
theres several he interprets like that .. great stuff
heres a traditional version for refrence
as far as backing.. you do know when Amati made a violin one of the first things he did was setup a backing in protools to check playability just sayin...true story lol
youre probably closrr than you give yourself credit...at least you could pitch do re me when you started!!
The second one led me to a play-along duet that I really did like.
I really like this duet version. The arranger lists the individual parts on his website to print out.
I put it into Musescore & a pdf (both violin lines) to practice it. I've posted copies here if anyone else wants them:
