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..

@GregW - Sorry took so long to get back to you on this, but life intervenes at times. I watched all of these and was really impressed by Mary Fahl and loved that the second one started with the viola leading! Perfect! The third one was okay, but for some reason did not hit "great" with me. 

The second one led me to a play-along duet that I really did like.

All of them make me feel a bit inadequate, but that is to be expected at my beginning level of expertise. Just more to strive for!

Thanks for thinking of me!

The old curmudgeon!

@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.

@GregW - Never thought that was the intention and I really appreciate hearing the different takes on the melody and interpretation. When I play, I don't always keep time well, not necessarily because I can't, but because I like the way the variation sounds. Wouldn't work with a group or backing track, but makes me feel better when I'm totally alone.

Someday, I would like to record my interpretation and then create a backing track which closely matches my variation in time, tempo, and dynamics. Alas, that is a far future thing, I'm afraid.

@JohnG

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!!

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:

@SharonC - If I had bothered to look closer I could have had it in MuseScore MUCH easier than the route I took! lol Thanks!

@GregW - Sorry it took me so long to watch those two videos. That first one O-M-G!!!! It so reminds me of my youth when watching modern jazz musicians jamming with unbounding energy and free abandon but with goals!
