good job Naska, even I can pick out each and every note with that vid  Nice job...thumbs-up

 

Now where's Jack... I want to see him do a waltz.... oh wait, that was even SLOWER than a waltz....facepalm

 

Hmmm, you could be right about banging up the tempo a bit for the project version, but this speed was great for us beginners trying to master the notes and rythmn first. Thanks Naska,

Guys! This video is only for practice, if somebody's interested. I don't think that the final version of the project will be so slow =)

Always welcome! cheers

 

Though i don't think it's a good example of practice video. If one can stand the FiddlerMan's tempo - better play with him!

If you play with FM, his quick tempo and aggressive vibrato will cover up many of your mistakes, just ask me how I know that...

I sound great playing a duet of that thing with him, but on my own... well... I'll spare you the misery... loldazed

Part 5 question.......

(Btw. I used my mates professional recording equipment last night, NEVER AGAIN! That 360 condenser mic picks up EVERYTHING, off notes, the metronome through my earphones, even me tapping my foot trying to keep in time!!)

But seriously.....
My pinkie cramped up during the first 23 bars of D, is it ok to switch to 3rd position? I will have to slide back down to 1st pos'n at bar 28, but that's a far less painful option drooling'

Terry, You can play open D string! Don't kill your pinky! =) It's not even necessary to shift the position, but if You'd like some training - then go ahead for shifting =)... Well i guess it all depends of personal preference dunno

Fiddlerman plays D on G str in IIIrd pos if i see it right, i play open D....duncecap

Thanks Mad_One, sorry, _Wed doublekiss

I was thinking maybe do some with 4th finger, then move over to open, looking at the following notes the shift might be a bit ambitious at my level.

in my Swan Lake practice!)

You could be right Naska, as I'm playing 4and/or 5, I have no idea how difficult it might be to play 1& 2 at a quicker pace than 120.

Sounds super slow. Are we really talking about playing eighth notes at 120? You guys probably mean 120 in 2 right? 3 eighth notes per beat.

Well 6/8 means that there are 6 beats in each measure and the 8th note gets one beat.

6/8 is either played in a slow tempo counted in 6 or a faster tempo counting in 2.

Obviously the tempo in two will have a slower marking but you will be playing 3 eighth notes to every beat. Eighth note triplets so to speak.

Now I confused everyone right?
