Check out the “Let it Snow” Xmas 2020 Group youtube project!”
I really don't need to get myself sidetracked even more (I want to learn 1 of these Mardi Gras tunes), but...
Know any good tunes, with altered tuning, about Raccoons?
Would be great to learn right now - think one ripped off half of 1 of our eave vents the other night. Glad it found out it couldn't go anywhere... or maybe it left just because Kevin banged on the wall. (lol)
I do not..BUT..the good thing about this type of music is you can record a bunch of arpeggios and scales runs for 32 bars..make sure the in the A part bar 8 ends slightly different than bar 4.. and the B part..bars 17 through 32 are somewhat different than the A part but close enough to sound like the same tune..make sure bar 32 is the same as bar 4.. call it Racoon ate the Eve and get a composer badge! 🤔😋😉😁
@elcbk me too! i like playing around with scales and arpeggios like that to a backing. every once in a while im like..wait a MINUTE... thats almost something. one workshop i watched was about tune writing.. Im not really serious about it but got interested. One thing they said was to always record...no matter how insignificant..come back later and revist that little snippett.. maybe add to it and after a while you never know...
as far as your original question there is a group of young ladies out there that play fiddle/cello called Ginger Majority...they have a post with racoon in the name thats REALLY good. sounds like a jazz and irish trad fusion tune. think youll like.
whatever we come up with tune wise we HAVE to have use either possum or racoon or greyhound in the name.. cats are over used. lol
heres a good greyhound tune... see how i slid this tune into the coversation..
I LIKE it!
But when do the Greyhounds stop running?
Pretty great that a Dad wants to start out his new son with some fiddle music.
This one might be cross-tuned... poor baby. (lol)
This one's got the gum stump and the 'simmon tree!
Oops, sorry - it's a Hickory stump. (lol)
