Ok, I have the right download and there is only one cello part, so I am good. I just can't play it. I am having a terribly hard time. 

My lessons rarely used the C string. I always have problems with a waltz. I spent an hour in it again today, my bowing arm was hurting, so Imhad to stop. No improvement, whatsoever, 

@Fiddlerman I might have to PM you a couple questions about it in a couple days after I give it another go. 😇 

You are always welcome to email me.

Yes @SharonC 

I put Gibbles to work. I got back from a mini vacation and I was bombarded with work. Was feeling guilty about not getting it done so I said, "Hey Gibbles!!!!!"

He banged it out.

I'm almost ready to record my part. Just need to find the santa hat. 

I have a feeling this project is going to sound really nice when it's finished.

@Jim Dunleavy - I have a feeling that you are right. :)

Go out and find yourself a great Christmas hat. 😁

I WILL get this. It really does not look that difficult. My cello does not agree.

Massive panic I didn’t realise the deadline was 5th ! And having to look at the music on my phone as no ink !!

Write the beats above the notes. So  for that bar

1  +  2  +3   +

So the crotchet is counted '+3'. Hope that's helpful.

Failing that, just listen to Gibbles' tutorial video and learn the rhythm by ear.

@Katie M -

I'm probably still living in the stone-age, but don't you have any access to a laptop, or tablet? 

Wow, you just made me realize that 99% of what I share is pretty much useless to people using phones.

@SharonC has GREAT play-alongs - extremely helpful... viewed on a laptop!

https://vimeopro.com/sharonlc/.....xfordcarol

 

I'd like to know how videos, play-alongs, and sheet music, could be made to cast up to the TV! 

...maybe something for the near future(?)

@Katie M

You can do this! Just stay calm.

Jim Dunleavy has given you sound advice on counting.  In fact, writing out the count throughout the piece will really help simplify this.  It’s not hard.

MAJOR TIP:  Set your metronome to 6/8 time at a very slow setting for preliminary work.  Generically speaking (not referring to the specific measure you questioned), a measure counted in 3/4 time is:  1 and 2 and 3 and.  When your metronome is set to 3/4, you’ll have a tick on: 1 2 3.  BUT, when you set the metronome to 6/8, you’ll have a helpful tick on: 1 and 2 and 3 and.  This granularity will really help you stay on course and finesse the trickier counts.  When you’re really comfortable with the timing at your pace, it will be much easier to switch to Fiddlerman’s All Parts click track to polish it all up.

Pay special attention to measures 10 and 11.  Carefully count the semiquavers at the end of bar 10, which together will take up just half a beat. Then, carefully count the triplets at the beginning of measure 11, together the triplets will occupy one full beat.  

Put the violin down, and just count out the whole piece while tapping out the beats with your hand as you look at the sheet music. Then, count it out while listening to the metronome.  Next, count it out while  listening to Gibbles play, and again while listening to Fiddlerman’s click track, all the while looking at the sheet music.

Warm up by practicing the F major scale repeatedly and the G major scale as well.

Practice the intervals in measures 9 and 10 again and again.  Nail your B flat, C natural, and F natural.  

Put all the pieces back together and work on the whole.  Notice all the repetitive phrases throughout.  There’s less to learn here than you realize.

Today, you only need to see a couple measures at a time.  Go to your local library later on when you have time and print out a couple copies of the piece from the public computers with internet access there.

Have fun with it!

@ELCBK  I don't know about other devices, but if you download files to an Ipad & have a Roku device on your TV, you can definitely cast.

I use my Ipad & use AirPlay to cast up to the Roku stick on my TV.

Not everything streamed on the Internet gives the option.

However, for files stored on my Ipad, I use an App called FE File Explorer Pro, & while in that app, it gives the option to cast using AirPlay, which works with my Roku.

@SharonC -

THANK YOU!!! 

Maybe people that only use phones will consider this an option for practicing the Wexford Carol!  

 

Kevin said he only knew some YouTube videos had a casting icon, but I'll see what's available for android/windows.

Thanks unfretted and Emily I totally get it now. 

Counting had completely gone out the window!

I can’t believe I’ve left myself so little time !! But I’m going to give it my best shot !

Thanks again

Hi ! I recorded every voice today, and on Wednesday I'm trying to record V1 with my cellist husband (beginner). Can we be 2 on the video where he has to record alone?

I think it would be wonderful, VERY Christmasy, to see family members play together in one video! 

What do you say, would that cause a problem, @Fiddlerman ?
