Love me tender
In the mood
It was good enough that the wife recognized them when played. I'm happy.
Bought a country song book last night,,,,I'm not a country kinda guy,,,,but these songs are some that I like, Four Walls, Take the ribbon from your hair, Crazy, etc.
Now if I could just untangle my fingers and remember to breathe, I'll be alright.
One of the good reasons for getting a book like this is that when sight reading a bunch of tunes all in a row, your deficiencies in form and technique show up. Just be sure to document them or you will forget them as quickly as your brain will allow.
I finished going through the book this morning and am sorely disappointed in myself and my violin. My self I will work on,,,the violin is in another thread.
@MrYikes I have noticed when I am playing from sheet, a lot of my bowing issues rear their ugly head. When playing from sheet I have to keep telling myself.. bow straight. I can't wait until I get a muscle memory in my bowing technique so I can play from sheet without technique going to hell.
Once I have a tune memorized it gives me the chance to fix things.
Good idea to take note of the deficiencies as the occur. I see you remedied the violin... be kind to yourself. It sounds like you play a lot of songs well these days.
Vibrato Desperato.... Desperately seeking vibrato
CPO, I don't play them well, just barely recognizable,,but I'm improving.
When playing sheet music, you must at times turn the sheet to the next page which is time consuming and frustrating. I do not know what methods other people have found that works. I came up with these micro clothes pins. Big enough to see and handle easily, small enough to not be in the way and they don't hurt the paper. What do the pros use?
