Perhaps I didn't make clear what I'm saying @Mouse  What you are seeing pop up for YouTube ads is not necessarily what everyone else sees.  It could be your device (pc, iphone settings, etc.,) settings, or where you live (targeting advertising, just like commercials for local businesses on TV).

Below, I have a link to a screen capture video from my computer desktop.  This is a live recording of what is happening on my computer monitor. 

For the recording, I have a Google search for Faded Love mark oconnor up on my computer screen. I then click on the YouTube link (same video GregW had posted), and then I click play. 

It starts with an ad for the Oscars, and then the music video starts. No ads pop up during playing of the video.  At the end of the music video, an ad for Motley Fool starts before I stop recording.

Grandpafiddle mentioned, "Take Five" (elsewhere) - here's the "Singapore String Quartet" version. 

 

Can't find a good (free) Quartet version, but here's sheet music for "Take Five (Grade 4 Violin Exam 2016-19,C1) with piano" at musescore.com

...could be really fun. 😊

Btw, watched that Mark O'Conner video + more on YouTube - no political ads in them or their descriptions.

I just happened upon something a little different, today - I thought would make a great Fiddlerman GP! 

"Isabella's Lullaby" from "The Promised Neverland" - beautifully performed by HanniXie.

Okay, I will be happy to join everything, but I WANT this one! 😍

@SharonC It starts with an ad for the Oscars, and then the music video starts. No ads pop up during playing of the video.  At the end of the music video, an ad for Motley Fool starts before I stop recording.

That is not was happening. The video started and the political ad comes up across the screen while the video was progressing. I get the ads at the beginning all the time, and skip when allowed. What was happening with the two videos I deleted were not like that. This was during the video, not pre-video ads.

I am going to bring it up with Fiddlerman, so please, let us get back to the 2021 group projects. 

Thanks everyone.

Hi Everyone,

Wow, so many great choices in such a small amount of time.  What an active and inspiring group that I have recently joined.  :)))

I had a hard time, looking over the list of choices, so I thought I would go through the list and listen to them all.  What I came up with was a top 5 list that immediately pulled me in: 

  1. Ashokan Farewell
  2. Ode To Joy
  3. A nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square
  4. Isabella's Lullaby and
  5. Suite from Magnificent Seven

There is, of course, a much larger list which I have made a separate list in which I have put on my ever growing Wish List.  

 

Wow, Fiddleman is going to have an enjoyable and yet difficult time in deciding which to choose.  :)))

I can move them, but if someone comments on your new topic of the same subject, it gets a little more involved.

Yes Fiddlerman is, @rabn Happy to see you here again. Don't be such a stranger. Maybe I just wasn't logged in or looking as guest when you have been here?

It will be interesting.

Earlier in this post, I suggested Faded Love, similar to Mark O'Connors version. The way I play it is a verse of Faded Love, throw a verse of Maiden's Prayer in the middle, and then another verse of Faded Love. It's the way Susanna Heystek plays it in one of her videos. If you like country music and like to have a little variety when you play, listen to her version and give it a try. I won't post a link again, but if you search YouTube for Susanna Heystek Faded Love Maidens Prayer, it will come up.

It's the way I play it for all my kitchen concerts for my dog, and she really likes it!

Have fun fiddling!

Here is a video of what was mentioned by GrandpaFiddle

 

Susanna Heystek - Faded Love and Maiden’s Prayer

 

This is a very neat idea, even if not these two songs, combining two songs that flow together.

Sorry, I've been so busy that I've fallen behind on checking posts.

I'm happy to choose the most popular.  I'll create a poll for all to vote on. :)

By all means feel free to post links. That is one of the things that make this forum fun to follow. Your previous link was fixed. I enjoyed that one very much by the way.

GregW,

Thank you for posting Macklins Vals from Orsa performed by Fiddlers Bid (post number 14), as well as posting the sheetmusic for this beautiful tune.  Hey, Everyone, this is definitely worth a listen!  Parts of this tune have an almost classical beauty to them.

It was a great reminder of how much I dearly love this talented band. I saw them live back in the day!  Haven’t listened for a while, and now must pull out those old CDs. 😊 I’m addicted again.

I haven’t stopped playing this tune since I saw your post!

Thank you for the joy.

Thank you Mouse for consolidating such an  extensive list.  It certainly will be interesting to find out what the poll determines the which piece we will be performing.  Right now I am learning Pan's Labyrinth Lullaby.  :)))  But any on this list will be a great experience to participate in.

Not intending to gum up the works, but ran across this interesting piece while looking at Cello and Viola versions of Hornpipes for the recent Party. 

"Shanghai Hornpipe", composed by Keith Sharp. 

💥 Kate Francis has video help for each part here, at her YouTube site (Violin 1 & 2, Viola and Cello).  Definitely doable - I'm sure Fiddlerman would break down even simple parts for beginners.

https://www.youtube.com/user/m.....s/videos 

Here, performed by the Daayo Youth Orchestra of the Texas D/FW area!

 

Alfred Music describes the Grade 3 Score: 

"A catchy tune featuring fun fiddling, alternating time signatures, pentatonic patterns, and modulation to the relative major key! This piece is just plain fun for students as well as a definite crowd-pleaser! All parts take a turn at one of the main themes. Various bowing styles and textures provide a wide range of educational and musical experiences. Optional ottava and third position for the first violins." 

"Ottava" is a new word for me - meaning, written an octave higher or lower!

https://www.memesmonkey.com/images/memesmonkey/52/52c25c9f85d97c5e369146264ccd954c.jpeg

 

...maybe worth checking out for a future Fiddlerman Group Project! 

Individual parts aren't scary at all. 😊 

- Emily
