ive just stuck to what i like..enjoy hearing. youll find something! i dont think ive picked anything to play because it had something about it i needed to learn technique wise ( i probably should...id grow music wise) but its always been about some melody i want to play that drives whatever im doing.
sounds good with the machine...hey.. all hobbies have their tools needed to make it easier..more interesting!
I really think you should learn something you love - to help with practice motivation.
Haven't you heard something wonderful, lately? I'm sure we can help you find sheet music for it!
If you find something meant for violin, but want to play it on Viola, can you use musescore to change it to Alto Clef? Maybe you would prefer playing it a 5th or octave lower.
If you don't want to use musescore, mark the notes on your sheet music with red pencil.
I will find something. I think the problem I am having is dealing with certain things right now. I have been having a hard time concentrating and thinking about what I want to play. I have not played, seriously, in a little while. Cello is coming along, though.
Most music I hear is 60's or 70's and I have a hard time hearing it being used for a viola. I love them, but most are faster than I am comfortable with right now. I am not interested in forcing myself to venture into plying fster before I am ready. If a song is meant to be played fast, and I know the tune, I will be forcing it to be played faster. Not comfortable with that. Tried it and just went backward. Intonation was lost.
I should go through my CD's. Maybe I can find one and play it by ear. That might work.
Listening to your favorite CD's is a GREAT idea!
I RARELY play the music I love as fast as anyone else - who cares?
It all sounds WONDERFUL played slowly!
If you like some 60's or 70's music and you don't want to use any of the play-along videos I've shared, worse case - you might have to buy the sheet music.
