Happy 4th everyone! No gigs for me this holiday and loving it. Think I'll work on my violin scales and work on The Star Spangled Banner. My wife and I have front row seats on our deck for a local fireworks display tonight so we're staying home.

Just got home from watching the fireworks from a friends boat directly under. Life is good 🙂

Happy 4th of July everyone. For those of you interested in surprising your friends, neighbors or just learning the American Anthem, I have written out:

The Star Spangled Bannerflag_usaflag_usaflag_usaflag_usa

Thank you! I was going to ask if you could provide sheet music for Our National Anthem. Very cool! I have not had many days off since the Good Friday tornado hit St. Louis. We have had storms every weekend. I just got back from working a storm in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Actually it was a little town called Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin. I could not resist screaming, "Hello, Wisconsin" from "That 70's Show" every chance I got! Just got in the door from a broken pole job that lasted all night. One of these days I am going to pick up that violin and play. Right now I have to hit the hay! Thanks for the sheet music!

You're welcome. It hit me yesterday morning that someone might want to play the national anthem and so I jotted it down. Had I thought of it earlier I would have found the time to make a "Happy Fourth of July" video playing the anthem as well.

I printed The Star Spangled Banner last night. I finally got to play my violin! I played for two hours! What a blast. Well for me anyway, the dogs ran and hid, cowards! I did a long slow warm up like I read on this forum. Concentrating on clean notes, threw in some string changes as well on open strings just to get the motion right, trying to keep the bow where it belongs. Then songs I know, Twinkle Twinkle, Mary Had a Little Lamb, Perpetual Motion, Jingle Bells, etc. Again I played concentrating on clean, even notes.  Then I worked on Amazing Grace. I really enjoy this tune. When I can get the three note, two string slur down to my liking, I will start on The Star Spangled Banner. I have my grass cut, and I have some spare time...I can play!!!

Here is another one. I knew there was a reason that this was one of my favorites after I was asked to play it for a funeral a little while back. It's from Holst's "Planets" the movement called Thaxed.

O God Beyond All Praising

Shur nuff!

The neat combination of finger, string and bow direction information along with slurs and dotted notes make this a valuable piece for basic beginner challenges.
It's "all there". (IMHO)

( You had just a few occasions for fourth finger with this piece but I know you will make up for it  smile

I wonder, later on, if such a collection would not be worth publishing, either privately or otherwise ?

PS   After sitting down with these pieces I realized that I might have looked for a (suggested) tempo (MM)

TEMPO LOL

Good idea. What was I thinking? So for now, free tempo.dancing

In regards to the 4th finger. If you look carefully to where I used the 4th finger it is to keep the player from having to change string for just one note or similar situations. I rarely use open strings when I play unless it is fitting of the style. But I'll shift rather than play one note with a forth finger.

Eureka!

I just discovered your METRONOME !

Now you have no reason to not incorporate tempo in the future.

(IMHO metronomes are one of the best training tools.  Not only for tempo, but to provide distraction which a student may well encounter in the real world.  Things like french horns in the church praise band.)

4th finger strategy is nice lesson.  Can't tolerate open strings most of the time.

Did you play O GOD BEYOND…………….. as a solo?

Glad that you found the metronome. That is my violin on the metronome BTW.

Yes I played "O God Beyond All Praising" A Cappella as requested by the priest.

Can I make a request please?

I'd like to learn 'Somewhere over the rainbow'

Sounds a pretty simple tune, hopefully I can handle it.

Thanks

If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.

Well, could I also request "Ave Maria"? It's slow and promises to give practice to tone control, and counting. (I have the score btw...but it's so long!)

I've also been practising 'La Cygne' simplified and arranged for violin.  It's also very slow, requiring counting and intonation.

If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.

Can't find the original, so I'll grab the printout and scan it for you.

How do I attach a file?

I second that, it just came up on my Ipod on my way home after a crappy day in the heat. Love that song, always makes me feel better.
