Join us for the 2018 Fiddlerman Virtual Group Christmas Project.
We'll be performing,"I'll Be Home For Christmas".

The deadline for your submissions will be in Monday, December 17th, 2018 at which time I will begin mixing. I encourage all participants to learn several parts. If the timing of your submission does not correspond with the playback file it will not be used. All submissions should be converted to MP4 (MPEG-4) with a minimum resolution of 640 x 480. No audio only submissions.

Please consider dressing the part if possible. Christmas decorated backgrounds are encouraged. This will make for a much more interesting video for us to share.

Visit this forum link to participate in the discussion of this project.

Please download the playback file to your computer, phone, MP3 player or similar for use during your recording. Any video submission recorded without the use of the playback file "in ear" (preferably using a headphone jack) will not be used. I cannot match all the parts unless you are hearing the playback file while recording.

The playback file should be used in-ear only, should not be audible on your recorded submission.

Send the MP4/MPEG-4 preferred video file to pierre@fiddlerman.com via wetransfer.com, dropbox, Google Drive, sprend.com or similar. Do not email the files…

OMG I have been waiting for this!  Just the project I need as I just lost my beloved cat and will welcome something to really concentrate on these next few months.

I've only been playing a month, so I realize my chances of making the cut aren't remotely good, but I'll give it my all and consider it a good project to work on.

Is it okay to preview the parts in musescore?  Does anyone else do that?  Is #4 the least difficult one?  It seems like it is but I'm no expert.

Great to hear it Deedee. What advantage is it to preview the parts in musescore by the way. Just curious. I can save them as a music mxl and you can certainly open with musescore.

Not to step on Deedee, but I love Musescore.  I export different parts to flacs and play along with them....

When you slow down real violin, it sounds pretty bad (terrible actually) but I think musescore can handle slowed sounds... not certain as I'm new to that program as well.  Have no idea what a flacs is.  I love playing along to things tho.

Mostly I just wanted to see how hard the parts looked.  I think the whole project is likely directed at much more senior players than myself, a rank beginner in every way - so I was anxious to just learn as much as possible right off the bat - as if I have a snowball's chance, but hey - you never know.

Id love the alternative files if that's no trouble, thanks for offering!

Yay! I've downloaded the violin sheets and I am so excited to practice. I only was able to submit for one Violin part last year - hoping to submit for all four parts this year. 

@Deedee-  Welcome, and I do hope you get the chance to submit a part (or parts) for this!  Please don't get discouraged if the parts seem hard! Try to study them in chunks so it doesn't feel overwhelming. I suggest you start with #4 and work your way up - at least that's how I would do it 😀

Everybody in this group is so awesome, so if you ever get stuck on anything just ask away and you are bound to receive wonderful advice.

Good luck, and have fun! cheerleader violin_girl

My neighbors probably want to strangle me for all the noise I've been making.  But hey, "no pain, no gain" right? Except, they feel the pain and I get the gain (I'm really sorry, neighbors :-S)

Click tracks are now available. They may change before time to record but not certain.
