I magically took away most of the accidentals. 🙂

What do you all think?

Please ignore the notes that are too low below C and such, I'll fix that later if we decide to go with this.

So, @Fiddlerman, it is now key of C, I hope? I can find the upper register notes on my cello, might have to mark it, but no biggy. Good practice. There was no hope woth the other key, whatever that was.

Good grief - I was editing my post and accidentally hit delete - man - this was it (with the edit) - 

I'm up for it - may be a bit of a pain for folks using metronome ( soft, or real ) to "get up to speed" because of the time-sig changes - but yes - sure - the only, and absolute, frame of reference for recording anything will of course be the click track...  So, ultimately, not an issue really - just a point...

But yes, no prob, looks good (and simplified)

***EDIT*** - I'm still thinking through this - it may (as the score stands) look "too much" (I know, it's not really - there will be more to come for separate parts) for some folks...  Can you mail me a musicxml @admin ( that is if that's how you have prepared it ) ?  TYVM in advance !

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

It looks good! Much better than the earlier version, this is easier to learn. I will definitely join this project!

Being new here, I don't expect my opinion to carry any weight, that said, I'd like to be supportive.

When I first heard Adagio I was very uncomfortable with all the tension I was feeling.

It looks possible that removing the accidentals may have changed this.

Fiddlerman - I really need to see or hear just the Second Violin part played to make a decision.

We all have our personal journeys with our instruments and I'm searching for a little something in this music to call to my heart.

It would help me tremendously to hear more from everyone that really enjoys this piece and why.

@ELCB Nobody’s opinions or thoughts carry more weight than anyone else, so please, feel free to share whenever. 😀

Also, I am thinking that Fiddlerman is working on the tracks for us to listen to as you are reading this. He does them for all the projects, from what I have seen since joining the forum.

I haven't worked on it yet. This is just a key change. With the score in Finale, I can produce parts in any clef desired and any octave without much effort at all. Changing the octaves won't affect the mix.

What I'm wanting now is input on the project and whether or not we should spend time on it.

@Fiddlerman 

Okay. I will give it (cello) a shot as you have it now and see if it is too much. It may take a few days to try it. It is not as intimidating now, and would not require having to translate all the flats into fingering of notes I already know how to finger (ie that C flat that was in the first version is just a B, etc.) I sat down to try that and could not even start. The other issue I have are the time signatures, and the changes of time signatures. I have never done a complicated piece like this, even in lessons. I have no idea what most of the time signatures are or how they would be played, or how to change in the middle of a song.

Will get back about the cello section.

A first reaction is that this is above a lot of us, so a lot of us would probably bow out of the project, or opt in and not be able to meet the deadline. As positive as I am trying to get myself, I am always back to bowing out because of the time signatures, the time signature changes and not knowing exactly what key and if it will have a bunch of flats, etc.

So if asked right now? I would pass. This is way more involved than Amazing Grace. I bowed out of GOT. If others want to do it, I can wait for the next project. 😁 It sounds lovely.

I've just recorded some harmonica tracks for a friend, so I'm more confident than I was, if the click track suits me, but I'd rather play it in the original key.

I'd be up for it, but I wouldn't fancy trying it in the original key (Bbm - 5 flats!) and I suspect few people on here would submit anything if it was.

 

EDIT: Just a thought though - would B minor not be a better key? Just a semitone up, but 2 sharps instead of 5 flats? EDIT OF THE EDIT - actually, looking at it, Am probably is the best, otherwise you'll have some dodgy fingerings with the accidentals.

I am not sure about the Adagio. I am not sure if it will require too much time due t my lesson work. i would hate to have @Fiddlerman do all that work for a cello part and not many cello players be able to participate. I know the viola is a no go for me. That would be the second option, but I am not beyond first position with that.

So, I will have to say that I cannot commit to the Adagio, but, do not let that keep others from doing it. Just wanted to say that I can’t commit to it. 😁 I would give it a shot and if I had a good video, I would submit it, but I can’t make a firm commitment.
