Good Morning,

I've just became a member and I have just found out that I unfortunately just missed out on participating in the 2020 Christmas project.  I was wondering if there were any thoughts as to possible 2021 projects coming up?  Looking forward to participating.

May The Beat Be With You Always,

Ray

When Fiddlerman is ready, he will have a thread started asking for suggestions. So happy to hear you are interested in participating.

@Ray -

Interest is always a key factor for a Fiddlerman Group Project! 

So, have any suggestions? 

In the meantime, and at your own pace, you can participate in any of our Parties - even start your own!

Good Morning Fiddlerman! I don't know how close we're getting to the next 2021 Group Project, but this would be one of my suggestions.

Ashokan Farewell. This Taylor Davis version is in four parts and she performs it beautifully. Watch the entire video as the harmony parts come in later. I hope you all enjoy!

How about the Last of the Mohican's theme? That one is sooo full of possibilities.

I love the Ashokan Farewell. I remember a member did this and it was beautiful. I was going to past a link to it, but the above video is a good representation. It is lovely. I think it would allow levels for all to be able to pick a part. With viola and cello, the above would even be more lovely. We will see how often I change my mind. 🤪

Has anyone else thought of a good piece for a group project? I have been trying to think of a few more options. There was a song I listened to a few months ago and I can’t remember the name. I think it was on one of my CD’s. I have to go through them and see if I can come across it. I have listened to a lot id different ones. I cannot remember which CD it was. 

In the meantime, anyone? So far, I am happy with Ashokan Farewell.

We could stir everyone's blood up a bit with this Andy De Jarlis reel, performed here by Jon Harkness!

Sounds neat, but personally, I don’t think it fits everyone’s level, even with adjusting. Just my personal thought.

In Fiddlerman's clever hands, I can envision some creative manipulation/interpretation of this tune to fit our group! 😊 

Instead of a lengthy fast passage - shorter passages, arranged in different parts, could echo off each other.  Some parts wouldn't need to have anything fast in them at all, e.g., single note legato drones - maybe add the few double stops, etc...

Personally, I've been here a year now, so I'd love to hear from new members. 

Ultimately, there will be many participants in any FGP, so I would enjoy whatever Fiddlerman puts his heart into.

This one isnt to difficult.  Lunasa recorded it along with Heatons Chapel in a set. 

 

Maybe something like a Vals from Orsa...

 

Ashokan always a good one.  Think there are alot of people probably familiar with it.

heres sheet music for vals from orsa

A and B part flow pretty well..the C part is a little more tricky..but those naturals really sound good..they give a brief dark sound to an otherwise happy sounding tune..try it with the recording above and see what you think.

I feel that, to have widespread appeal, it can't be something too obscure.

Ashokan Farewell fits the bill nicely. (Incidentally, while organizing my loose music this week I came across an arrangement of it that I wrote for violin and viola some years ago, played once, and forgot about.)

Movie themes and show tunes also tend to work well. Here's one I've wanted to play, portions of which I think should be possible to arrange for a mixed group of mostly beginner to intermediate players. Would just have to make sure there are some beginner-appropriate parts.
