Ok, I'll edit my previous post ... counting ability is lapsing ...

Do we repeat 4 times in all?

Or change from V1 to V2, eg, for the second half?

dunno

If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.

You can do whatever you want on the repeat but just repeat the whole piece once as in the click track. Unless I messed up again.... Did I? I am not terribly careful now a days. LOL
The idea is that if you would like to, you can play up an octave on the repeat. IOW 2nd time around.

Cool, that's clear then ... play the whole piece through twice.  I was wondering why the click track goes through 4 times, but good for practice purposes.

I have just practised the whole thing in V1 and V2 with the click track, and the whole thing sounded awesome!  But then, the volume in my ears is loud, and drowned out what I was doing ..... rofl

like you Robyn I was wondering why the click track went through 4 times... but now I know -- we just play it twice through. 

Last month my practice time had to be set aside, so I'm practicing like mad to be sure it sounds good. 

I'm excited about this project!

Sorry about the click track repeating 4 times. That was a mistake. I never listened to the whole thing. I wrote the piece in Finale with a repeat and when I saved it as an audio track the audio took the repeat and I assumed that it would just play once through (no idea why I thought so) and copied and pasted the audio once more on Garage Band. LOL
I'm a little too hasty with these things. I'll fix it but in the meanwhile if you guys play it twice, that is perfect. If anyone plays it 4 times I'll take the best takes. :-)
Regards, Your sloppy admin......

Thank heavens that I only have to do it once. I have trouble playing any tune twice without getting it wrong. violin-1267

At least I've got some Christmas apparel ready, if not the tune. smile

Great suit! Who brings Christmas gifts in Australia? Santa? In my country (Czech Republic) it is Baby Jesus. Santa comes the 5th of December and brings chocolate. And what do you eat on Christmas Eve? All of us eat fried carp with potato salad. Yum. fishchristmascandle

@terezka 

Hi Terezka

Its Santa that brings gifts here. Traditionally our food at Christmas has been rather British, Australia once being a British colony. However in recent times with our climate being rather warm here at this time of year we eat more seafoods such as shrimp, oysters with salads. However we still have the roast pork, turkey, ham, chicken and roast vegetables santa3

That sounds great!! :) I love shrimp, but we have no sea and all seafood is extremely expensive... Here it isn't very warm. It's just snowing. :)

Oh no we don't Ferret!

Try living in Cairns or Darwin and cooking a traditional roast on Christmas day!  Not on your life!

Unfortunately, we don't live near the fruit growing areas, so apart from bananas, mangoes and lychees, our summertime fruit is of poor quality, and so is the salad.

But we make do, and of course there's plenty of chilled wine to make the food taste a little better.  Even the seafood is often a bit suss, because all the commercially caught fish are processed overseas, or at least in southern states.

Oh dear!  I've digressed haven't I?  I was just thinking about how hot it's going to be recording my part for this project, hopefully I can get it done in one sitting before the violin slips off my skin.

Hope everybody else enjoys their nice hot meals for Christmas!

Children, don't argue. pie_in_the_face-2223 Robyn, I hope I'll make it as well. Unfortunately, when my baby is sleeping, I can't play. When he isn't sleeping, he wants to play with me, sings and climbs on me. No chance to make a serious recording. :D What's more, my ears are much better than my hands and all my recordings make me vomit. confused

The click track seems to have disappeared.

Ok, who wants a good laugh?

I just tried to record my entries into this project.  All good, candles will be a nice touch won't they?  And a nice red scarf?

Set up the candles (had to turn off the fan so they don't blow out) ... phew it's hot in here!  Ok, a mirror to reflect the meagre candlelight ... check.  Then realised my music stand is what I've used to lean the mirror on, and the music is starting to scorch ... quick!  

Ok, rescued the music, it's still readable ... oh dear!  While I was leaning over to grab the music, my scarf has caught fire!

Aaaahhhh ... only a little bit singed around the edges.  But the candles keep going out all of their own accord, probably because they've been in the cupboard for years, only used in cyclones when the power is out.

But the result of them going out and being re-lit?  The damn smoke alarms are going off!  Quick, or the neighbours will be calling the firies ...

Emergency averted ... all good, camera turned on, sweat mopped from my brow and running down my back ... press record ...

After 6 attempts, I was quite satisfied that this was the best I was going to manage today, switched off the camera (surprisingly, the batteries didn't give out like they usually do).

Just fired up the computer to check my video, and the camera hasn't focused properly, I've been so intent on my bowing that my right arm has totally hogged the camera.  So ... no soft candlelight, no red scarf (I tried to hide the singed bits), and the tone wasn't actually very good anyway.

Maybe tomorrow ...

How do you people live in climates where you have an open fire?  I'm sure I'd burn down the house on my first day.

LOL Robyn,

Sounds like the perfect practice session.... Or it became one.
Sorry to hear of your bad luck.
Looking forward to hearing the final version when that gets done. :)

Funny story! 1st-place (I am a persistent optimist and I love "black" humour.) In our climate it is normal to have open fire in homes. Yes, during winter there are some cases of fire, but when you handle it every day, it is less likely. Is it really so hot in Queensland now? Here it's  still snowing or raining and the coldness is terrible.

It would be great if we all made videos where the others could see something that is special about his/her country. Can you get a kangaroo or a platypus in the supermarket? santa3 We have few specialties and I'm afraid I absolutely CAN'T play like maestro Josef Suk. dunno
