Don’t worry about it, Emily. I think I have an idea and will give it to Fiddlerman tomorrow. I feel like a ping pong ball. 🤪 This is a fun forum and this is part of it. I have liked your ideas, but am totally confused at the moment.

cid -  Thanks for fixing!  Was confusing & originally hard to find for me, too.

Fiddlerman did it. I just sent him an email with my ideas.

But, let us not continue with discussing the forum change and continue with the project suggestions discussion.

I compiled a list of the suggested projects that are posted under the Future Projects threads.  Lots of suggestions.

Great list! And so many good suggestions.
My favourite is Finlandia by Sibelius. It's so stunning! And because I'm from Finland there is always one special place in my heart for that piece. 😍
Here is a link to Lahti Symphony Orchestra ”covid19-edition” which made me almost cry.

I should have posted "Powerlåten" this way, earlier.  I'm pretty sure nobody noticed it after "King of the Fairies".  A few bowing challenges, double stops and Harmonics!

 

 

SharonC - Thank you for the list - REALLY helps!  Need to fig a way so it doesn't get lost.

Could I ask a favor of listing, under "Le grand cahier", the "VII. Les pommes de grand-mère" and "IV. Nos ètudes"?  "Le grand cahier" is a large suite (correct term?).

Emily,

Here’s the updated list.   

I like lists.  If I can organize something on a spreadsheet, I’m a happy person.

Honestly, I want more input when I discuss the projects. If feels with this little input that there will be little participation. I'm game for doing the work as long as there is no time limit.
For sure we will be doing a Christmas project. I was hoping for one more project before the Xmas one.
I always struggle with the complexity of the projects. Perhaps we should actually do an Old Time piece instead. I see a lot of interest in Old Time music here. What say everyone about that idea?

The big discussion in the other thread started when I asked what exactly Old Time music is. I still don't really understand the answers I got...

I listened to a nice song a few days ago from the 60's called "Somewhere My Love" (Lara's Theme.) It's in 3/4 time and was played with 3 violins and cello. Nice, smooth old song. I'm not sure what genre most people favor. I too lean towards the old time songs. Whatever Pierre decides on I'm sure will be great!

There have been too many suggestions between the three threads for me to really keep up. I am just waiting to see if it ends out being something with a viola or cello part at my level. If not, I can wait it out til the next one and just enjoy this when it is done. Whatever you all come up with, fine with me.

Ok, cleared my mind. Went through my newly arrived cardstock and dies. My mind is now refreshed. 

@Fiddlerman, what is considered an old time song? 50’s, 60’s, 40’s, etc? I could get into that. It helps to be familiar with a piece.

We've recently just been discussing the roots and some regional differences.

"Old-time music is a genre of North American folk music. It developed along with various North American folk dances, such as square dancing, clogging, and buck dancing. It is played on acoustic instruments, generally centering on a combination of fiddle and plucked string instruments, most often the banjo, guitar, and mandolin." (Wikipedia)

I have no prefrence on a project song.  I should have attempted Game of Thrones. But to add one that I just remembered..there was a waltz that someone on here posted that his grandpa played.  he was looking for the name and we all decided it was The Shannon or Shannons waltz. Mimi posted some notation..  think it was in F.  sorry if that adds to the confusion of tunes.  Personally Id be better served learning wise to attempt a project more on the easier classical realm.  as long as vibrato not needed embarassed..or too much position shifting facepalm...

I am with you on the ease, GregW. 

I am thinking the old time music will be up to you all. Pretty sure it will all be very much too fast for me. But, if that is what you are all interested in, go for it. I will be happy to be in thr audience and clap! Songs with mostly 8th notes and shorter, or just a fast speed would not happen with my lack of speed. Fun to listen to, though.

Why Didn

 

I was only interested in the Irish and Scottish roots of the "Old Time" music!

 

I've been hoping for a "Halloween" Group Project, but there doesn't appear to be much interest...Pumpkin Magically Change To 3 Bats Emoticons

I don't know if many of the FM Forum members just don't understand? 

Or, they haven't seen that Fiddlerman wants to hear from more than a handful of people, what they are interested in?   No one can blame him for not wanting to waste his time.

Or, is it just not enough people care about doing a "Group Project" in the 1st place?

I can throw out suggestions all day. Thing is, I don't care that much about what it ends up being, I'll play whatever it is and would be happy to record a new group project every week or two if they exist.

Maybe I should just arrange something myself, put it under "start your own project," and see if anyone wants in.
