Smiley Broke Apart Smiley

Believe it, or not - was watching/listening to recommendations from a handout, from the "Microtones in Irish Fiddle Playing" workshop that led me to see something out of the corner of my eye in the YouTube... that led me to see something out of the corner of my eye in the YouTube... that led me to see something out of the corner of my eye in the YouTube...

@GregW -

That sounds PERFECT! 

❤🧡💛💚💙💜

I can't hardly distinguish anything anymore, think my brain shut down, but this really sounds great!  

Now that I've been so obsessed with the 1st half of Freemount ByPass (up to 2:47) - realized I just don't like the 2nd half - haven't even touched it, yet. 

Think it's because it just sounds like a completely different tune - kept looking to see if this was a set! 

Maybe if I play just part of the 2nd half, as a break, then return to somewhere in the 1st half of Freemount ByPass... there's already something like an A & B part there before 2:47.

I'm trying not to be so disappointed that I just abandon the whole tune!  Especially since I'm getting pretty good at .75 speed.

...could always change to a different key or octave - won't be able to call it Freemount ByPass, if I change it too much. (lol)

You probably arent speaking of this..but the track is actually a 2 tune set..and I agree that the second tune is not as good.   Im not even sure its an Iris tune.  also...have you noticed the horns playing in freemount?   sounds pretty cool I think.   while I was poking around on the drum track I decided to reverse the reversed audion to try and catch what exactly was playing...theres a small section with what sounds like a male voice saying glory...reminded me of all the..."if you play that tune backwards it says..." stuff back in the 70's  also the country joke of if you play a country song backwards you get the dog,truck ,and spouse back.. lol

hey 75% is a pretty good clip there!   ive no idea what i could do but if its like all the rest thats my GOOD day ceiling on stuff I try and play....so great!  Im pretty sure theyre two different tunes.   that midi llay along is from the session and its an A B form...I think ...memory..done for tonight

@GregW -

Thought that was still the 60's! (lol) 

I'll be VERY content when I get to a well played .75! 🤗

Still feels like a tongue-twister... or, finger-twister - screwed if I lose any concentration. 😳🤪 

giphy.gif

Horns - where?  I'm missing them.  Only hearing accordion, flute and guitar, besides fiddle - maybe also uilleann pipes. 

...still on a kick of "King of The Fairies" dubstep (groove hint?), "Isabella's Lullaby", more Fiddle Hell... maybe a Party, soon. 

- Emily 

facepalm Just realized instead of looking at EDM for rhythm of "Freemount Bypass", maybe should've be looking at Afro-Cuban Jazz rhythms, which I just started learning about at Fiddle Hell!  Just got "101 Montunos", which is supposed to have a great section on "Clave".  I better at least crack it open - listen to the cds for future stuff! (lol)

sounds like either some type of horn or possibly synth playing with the chord changes on the B part second half.. 

hmmm...  I tried playing An Caisleán Óir to the frremount loop I made...and also some random pre made drum loops... it turns into more of a reel..  which is ok..sounds good..  i wonder what a reggae beat or blues shuffle would do with a hornpipe?  lol...gonna have to try that later with king of the faries.   

Have you looked at an app called loopz on the play store or whatever the equiv is for apple?

@GregW -

Oooh, you got my attention with Reggae beat! 

Heard what you were talking about (at least at the end of Freemount) - sounded like a sax! (lol)  Yes, liked it - could've used more!

I've been so busy listening/playing (when I've felt good enough) that I have let everything else fly out the window (except the Grandkids and the cats)!  

I will definitely check out loopz in Google play.  

Thank you!

...btw, I've found playing with a track can be treacherous for me. 

Either I stress to play exactly in sync or I get in a comfortable spot & zone out... then the worst - I wake up, lost my place. 😖

@GregW -

Okay, thanx for putting up with all my nonsense (it's a learning thing). dazed

I finally put the loopz app on my phone - should've done it a year ago!  

"Shake It" at 80 BPM, sounded close to what you ended up with. 

Also liked "Gramaphone" and "Cissy Groove", both at 80 BPM, went well with the Freemount ByPass video version. 

I can't judge anything by what's on thesession.org - seems faster than the video version, plus I don't really want to hear that key right now when I'm 1st learning it in F/Fm.  Haven't even tried to figure out if it might really be a modal key, yet. 

I need to get more comfortable playing this at 75% speed... not giving up, but absolutely NO ambition to play this faster! (lol) 

So, if I want to play along with one of those 3 from loopz, "Grammaphone" is the only one that is available down to the 60 BPM I need.

Doesn't sound very fast, does it? 😕

yup gramaphone is a close match for sure!  how'd i miss that one.!?  i think i just jumped right into presonus and started messing with drums..  i had the original in one ear and drums (presonus) in the other try to match.  i tried looking at waveforms on the track which got me close but always kept hearing more and more...then uhhhmmmm   thwn id be like...now i dont hear that thing anymore now i hear this thing.. lol

i can slow down and reupload but i think with loopz and the original you seem to have it covered.

isnt Fm modal?  coffee2 banana  being a smartsaa there..lol

Fm may be a good one for position changes?  

 

as far as "putting up with"   thing...i and probably others that read your post get info from them too.  if nothing else it keeps stuff in the brain bouncing around.  interesting topics and discussiin to me.

@GregW -

Yes, F minor is a mode. 🤣

Positions? 

🤔 You have me feeling like I'm missing something. 

But, F is only one note step up from E, so...?
