Question about measure 18:
There is an accidental E sharp. Of course by convention, the next E in the measure should also remain an E sharp. Is this what you intend, or should the second E in the measure be notated as an E natural?
I realize that the arrangement could work either way, but my ear and my fingers naturally gravitate to an E natural on the second E in measure 18. And that may be because of the D sharp that follows that second E. But musical tension can be good, can’t it.
Please verify. Thank you!
Thank you @Mouse .
I realize that E sharp = F natural. The choice of notating flats or sharps usually depends on the key.
I’m referring to the actual pitches.
Measure 18 has two E notes in it. Is it intended to be E sharp and then E sharp again? Or is the intention to be E sharp and then E natural?
It sounds better to my ear to play E sharp and then E natural. But that’s just a preference. If it is truly intended to be E sharp and then E sharp again, that’s fine. I just want to verify.
Mouse have you tried the machine that flashes a light in your eyes and takes a snapshot? Its good because the picture is digital and doc can pull it up on his monitor and compare to previous ones and show you what he/she is looking at. Plus... no dilation so no need to have the after effects of that.
First post here! I have been wanting to do this for years and I finally have my chance this year! Any tips for the new gal? I assume there will be some sort of track to play along with for tempo? Thanks!
The biggest tip I will share is that the click tracks are not the starting point for the project, but rather the homestretch towards the finish.
If you wait for the click tracks before you begin working on the piece, you may not have enough time to produce a truly polished performance. Fiddlerman posted the sheet music a month ago, and the arrangement is lovely. If you choose the part most suited to your current ability and work diligently with your metronome now, you’ll only need to sync your tempo with the click track when it’s released.
Also remember to check out the project video guides when they are posted for guidance on dynamics, phrasing, musical expression, shifting, etc.
