I looked at the video for the Game Of Thrones Project.

Are there different versions of this tune? The reason I ask is I see several online version in 3/4 time. I think Pierre's version is 12/8.

I'm beginning to begin to get into this now.

Where did you see the different versions? We are doing it as in my video with 12/8 time.
Our project page, and sheet music is found here:
https://fiddlerman.com/2018/10.....thrones-2/
Obviously you could turn the eighth notes into quarter notes and play twice as fast but the music is pretty similar.
I wrote this particular arrangement and I'm glad you asked if there are different arrangements because I simplified the first violin part for the video and those who have trouble with it the way it was.

Thank you Fiddlerman for the response. My first search for music online is usually Google>images>song name notation. I seen a few examples in the other timing. Like you mentioned, I guess it isn't critical all depending on the tempo. I didn't see you had the music online.I will refer to it instead. Thanks!

 I plan to play this one.

Anytime.
We'll get on this project soon. In the meanwhile, I'm not sure what happened to the other Game Of Thrones thread. I couldn't get it working.

Gibbles and I will be making practice videos for this project which is born again through the "Stay at Home" incentive and to make the best of this situation that we can.

Here is Gibbles first video for Violin 3.

Thanks for the deadline. I kept pushing off submitting new parts just because.  Now there's more incentive to just git er done

Hello everybody! I'm new to this forum, but thought I could use the time productively to participate in this fun exercise 😀 Can we send all the violin parts? Or just pick one at random?

Welcome @nandinishankar !  Enjoy the forum !

Please feel free to send as many parts as you like!   What happens is that only one of your videos will be used, but the audio will be extracted from any additional parts you send in, and will be included in the audio mix !

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

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

Hello everyone!

I am new to the forum. I picked up a violin for the first time 6 years ago, learned for a few months then got caught up in a busy life (baby + university) and couldn't find time for it.

Now I'm giving it another shot and I think participating in this project is really motivating! I'm going to attempt parts 3 and 4, since I'm still a beginner...

I was wondering if someone could upload an audio clip of both parts so people like me know what it's supposed to sound like... I've seen the tutorials made by Gibbles and they are really helpful, but you can't listen to the whole score without interruption...

Have a nice day!!

Gibbles, thanks for the video on how to tackle the violin3 part. Just what I needed for getting into the rhythm. Ok, time to get to work.😊

Anyone going to dress in costume?  I'm thinking of rearranging my viking costume into something appropriate.  Come on, it'll be fun.

@georganne Great idea! We have missed Comic expo and likely the renaissance faire we go to in the summer, so you just gave me a great excuse to dress up. Although I can't wear my Mad Max outfit. It will have to be the viking shieldmaiden or renaissance wench.

quick question, the suggestion is to "dress the part"... What would a "part" look like? Should I get my suit of armor shined up?

thanks

Sent in a few takes of part IV. Video was horrible I know but planning to make a few more before the deadline. I strongly recommend watching the tutorials. Really helped me.

I just did a google search of Game of Thrones, then went to images and came up with lots of ideas.

Please read these new guidelines before recording yourselves:

 

  1. Use the name that you want used for credits when saving your file along with the part that you performed. Example 4_Fiddlerman.mp4
  2. Record, and leave a minimum of 5 seconds before and after your performance.
  3. Set up your recording device (Camcorder, phone, tablet, camera) in landscape mode. Wider view vs upright.
  4. Center yourself as well as possible in the video frame.
  5. Have the lighting in front of you and not behind you. Windows tend to make the object in the foreground look dark. Set up your camera on the window side or use sufficient lighting in front of you.
  6. Cloes-ups are great, but try to get more than just the width of your face. Don’t shoot from too far away either. We like to have a better quality picture you, the subject. Distant filming reduces the quality drastically when zooming in for the mix.
  7. I will not use a video that does not include your face. Please aim the video correctly.

Thanks

Hi guys! 

 

I just sent in all the 4 violin parts by wetransfer to Pierre - it was so much fun. I am essentially an Indian violinist, so it was fun to play something different for a change. I rewrote everything in the Indian notation system, and played it in the tuning I use for Indian music. I also used my transparent electric violin for the visual appeal! I stumbled upon this about a month ago when I was looking for a new bow (A very good quality bow I had, broke recently). But I'm super stoked about this event and can't wait for the final video and the results of the draw!! Thank you, Fiddlerman, for making this so much fun. I'm so glad I opened that email. It's a new thing I learnt to do during lockdown 😀 I hope Indian residents are also considered for the lucky draw!

 

Cheers

Nandini
