Yay.. I love it.  What a lovely video.  

Makes me feel warm and fuzzy.  Thanks everyone for being in the video.  Thanks for being the best Fiddle Family in the world.

Pierre, you've made us all so very truly happy.  Thank  you so very much.   I feel so proud and so very honored that you allow us to do this and work so hard. 

Merry Christmas and the best of Cheer and Peace for a FANTASTIC 2015 to come.

Love and Sunshine

Aloha @Fiddlerman,

Thanks for this.hats_off  Now I can show my wife, without having to have her listen only to mecool  Everyone else covered up my playing!  Seriously, it was good to be part of the Christmas project, but I need to actually smile while I play.  I looked way too serious.  I was nice to see all of the other participants.  Thanks everyone.  Next year, I'll also try to find something "christmasy", but here in Hawaii, while it may be 65 in the morning, by 9:00 or 10:00, it's already back up to around 75 or so.  Those nice Christmas hats get hot after only a few minutes.facepalm

Wow, I can hardly believe it.  I've only been playing for three months and I'm part of an official Fiddlerman Project!  This is really great.  Thanks again @Fiddlerman for giving me this opportunity.thumbs-up

Merry Christmas, everyone! christmaswreathchristmascandle

heck - gotta post again - specifically @iBud "Everyone else covered up my playing!  "   LOL - ain't that what happens in an orchestra, unless you're a soloist or lead?  LOLOL - kidding with you iBud -

I know it's off topic - but saw your comment and just wanted to thank you for all the pieces you have composed and submitted recently ! Great work man !   Thanks ! 

Having a lot of fun playing along to them.   Thank you !

Bill

Aloha @BillyG,

I was hoping it would be this way.  Imagine if he picked each of us at random, put us in the center of the video and while in the center, turned up the volume on our part.  Oh, the horror!

I'm really glad that you enjoy my work thus far, such as it is.  I don't really have too much complexity in it, probably due to my inability to play more complex pieces.  As I progress on the fiddle, expect my tunes to gain more complexity.  I really do enjoy my time here, and this is my small way to give back.

Wow, that sounded great.  Thanks to the Fiddlerman for the great composition and all the video work and this great website too.  This is the most fun I've ever had on the internet.

Happy Holidays all and congratulations to everyone who sent in a video.

So what's our next project?  Practicing for this project was the most intense practicing I've done.  The pressure of a public performance and a deadline does wonders to cultivate focus and concentration.  You think you have it down, then the camcorder start rolling and you can't kid yourself or ignore errors.

I need to give everyone who doesn't have one yet, and participated in this project, a project badge. Help me out so that I don't have to use my brain too much. Please PM me for your badges. Thanks everyone. Great job. Most participants so far. My computer was working HARD!!!

This turned out so well, the director of the music school I attend want to post a link on the school's FB page. Thanks Fiddlerman!

 

Can't wait for the next project. I sense my learning speed is slowly picking up.

Thanks everyone. I appreciate the participation.
It feels like we did it right this time. It's ready to post in time for Christmas.
First time we did a project in such short time too.
Bravo to all of you!!!

@Ripton - I think I probably should have chosen your outdoor performance instead.
