Please feel free to share. “Game of Thrones Group Project”
Here's my LAST suggestion to get support for a Group Project (sense you are all cheering)!
Would it be inappropriate to PM all FM Forum members and ask if they could take a look at SharonC's "List"? See if they would like to choose something from it?
I can't help but feel there are many, many members who just haven't seen this discussion.
Or, maybe Fiddlerman could tack a note (referring to "The List") onto gen/sales emails he sends out to members/customers?
Thank you SharonC for making this great list of all the GP suggestions! https://fiddlerman.com/wp-cont.....ul2020.pdf
I'm favoring "People are Strange" (The Doors) from "the List", for Halloween.
I like the "Old Time" waltz, "Midnight on the Water" (Benny Thomasson) from "the List" - but NOT for Halloween.
That's the last for me on this subject!
Second 2020 Group Project Suggestion List (I purposefully did not add video links because they are very distracting for a list that has the sole purpose of being a listing. Please Google any you want to hear)
There is also the spreadsheet format provided by SharonC that you may find easier, I have added a few more. Also, I tried to alphabetize by title of the piece. I used SharonC’s spreadsheet to create this, and then went thread by thread to make sure we have them all.

This is a comment made in a reply in the thread that has Halloween in the subject. I think it is pertinent and needs to be visible in the listing of suggestions.
caseclosed, 7/31/2020 in the Halloween thread:
"I'm not advocating for any particular piece, although I wondered if a general tune that's entertaining would be more appropriate this year than one that deals with the subject of death (like the Elfman). Given the world's COVID-19 crisis, titles or content of such tunes could appear tone deaf to potential participants, who might opt out of the Halloween group project. Perhaps a generally spooky, entertaining, or classic tune (like the Grieg, The Doors, or others) would appeal to a wide variety of people and could help to maintain a sense of inclusivity, which has been a hallmark of these group projects. Just a thought as the Halloween music selection process rounds the corner."
I think this should be taken into consideration in the selection. I, too, believe that any piece with the subject of "death" should be eliminated at this time.
I would say, we really need a cheerful piece, not really Halloweeny. I just think we need something to lift our spirits, and lift the spirits of those who will view this performance. It is not just going to be viewed by us. It is going to be on YouTube. We want to bring people cheer at this time, not sadness, fear, etc. Just my opinion or idea, a littler further than caseclosed's.
I am thinking of it as a needed gift to the public from Fiddlerman's forum members to brighten their days.
I would not suggest pm'ing all members. Just the opposite, If asked my opinion, I would say, do not do this. Not all members are active on the forum any longer. I would say most are no longer active forum members. Who knows why? Could be any reason, but most likely, personal. But, PM'ing them when they have chosen not to login any longer, for any reason, would, in my opinion, be a little unwanted.
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?
I’m good with an Old Time tune. I’m good with the Barber Adagio. I’m good with Twinkle, Twinkle Reggae style (ok, I made that up—please don’t add it to the list). I’m good with any tune selected, whatever it is. I know I will learn something from the experience of doing it regardless of its simplicity/complexity, its genre, its tempo, its key, etc., Count me in—I’m good to go when you say “start”.
I’ve provided input—but I believe Fiddlerman means “more input” from others who have yet to respond, not more from me. There are lots of you all out there (both guests & log ins). I’m thinking with the 94/74 participants in the last two projects, a lot of you would like to participate in more. Please provide some input.
If you are a forum member reading this, and you have not provided any input, be it just stating you intend to participate, or commenting on a previous suggestion, or providing a new suggestion, the acknowledgement that you are going to participate is needed.
If you are a guest viewer, and therefore cannot comment, why not join our forum and become an active member?
Maybe this will help.
With just one vote and just the name, no other comment, which one of the suggestions in the list above would prefer. Remember, just the name. You can copy and paste if you want, but no explanation or comment. Maybe we can get an idea of the way it is swaying, this way, if you want something “happier” because the list is kind of Halloweeny, or downbeat. Granted, I have no idea what most of those sings because I am not classical. Classical to me is sad and heavy. I also can’t tell from YouTube videos of big orchestras because I am trying to hear the exact melody, and that gets lost in the YouTube orchestra links. So, to me, the list is down beat.
So, which one are you leaning to right now, no second vote and no comments. It is just a small search out survey.
I apologize for the link error in my previous post to SharonC's List of suggested Group Projects. I corrected it, but here it is, again.
When it comes to the subject of death, please remember that the "Day of The Dead" (Dia de Muertos - "All Souls' Day") is a Mexican celebration which has crossed over to the USA and is associated with Halloween. Celebrating "with" deceased loved ones before they continue with their spiritual journey!
There hasn't been any suggested Group Project music that is morbid or in any way disrespectful of the Covid-19 deceased.
Is anyone interested in any of the songs above?
Is anyone interested in doing a project, so Fiddlerman knows how many people are interested in doing a group project.
So far, based on responses, the following are seriously interested. I have not gone back through the thread, so if your name is not on my list, it does not mean I didn’t think you are interested. I just did not want to add a name who was not interested any longer.
Just add your name as a reply, and if you have a song preference from above, just one from list it, too. If none of the above songs, name a new one, just one, but making the list longer will add to the decision. To eliminate clutter, we don’t need a video link, we can google it. Please, just one. If no particular song above interests you, maybe provide a genre or mood of a song you would like to do. It would be nice to narrow the list down.
I hope this helps get the ball rolling down the hill.
Cid (depends on difficulty level)
Ilona (I think)
I agree, Sharon, I think more "input" means more people responding, not necessarily suggesting, the list is quite long.
I said nothing about the size of the list. I said that more people who would like to participate should provide input, not that they shouldn’t provide new suggestions (this is a forum, after all). Other people should have the opportunity to provide suggestions, comments, and/or explanations.
Hey, you other people out there—go for it. If someone doesn’t want to read all the comments, they do not need to do so.
More Input. Input. Forum=Open discussion/expression of ideas (e.g., suggestions, comments, explanations).
I will not comment any further on this thread. If there is a project, I will participate. And please do not speak for me. Thank you.
That is simply lovely. I don’t recall ever having watched Legends of the Fall. This forum is the only place I have ever heard it.
I keep going back and forth. I love this one. I love the idea of a fun People are Strange and I love Edelweiss. Everyone has such good points about their suggestions.
We have to remember all these suggestions as a jump start for a future project.
