Hi All,

I’m learning a really simple version of the Godfather which I’m absolutely loving ! The problem I have is that it goes ultra high. I’m wondering if anyone has a link of all the notes that go up the violin and what they look like on the music staff? There aren’t many I need to know and I’m thinking I could just learn them for this song!

Thanks all.

The notes start in first then go to third position and higher, you can play them all on t he E string high up the neck, remember your fingers go closer and closer together the higher up the neck you go,why not change the tune and see what they sound like in first position, all good practice.

I’m going to practice and then post a video!

Obviously I’m struggling with it but I really like the melody and of course the film! How cool if I can eventually play it !

Glad to hear that you're loving the simple version of The Godfather. The sheet music that I wrote doesn't go way up on the E string through.

I just watched the tutorial! I’m going to give it a bash!

I’ve noticed I can tell when I’m off on a note now!

Thanks all! I think I’m going to be practicing the Godfather for a while! I try and practice before work and lunch times but haven’t been able to lately.. just about half hour in the evenings! 

Thanks all.

Fiddlerman your tutorials are great I love the camera angles thank you for doing them!
