Cheers and thanks, @ABitRusty !

When I get a chance I'll have to go back up through the thread and catch the submissions from yourself (I vaguely recall seeing your name flashing by as I scrolled through the thread) and others.  I'll be back at the laptop later today and take the time to properly go through it !

Great to see the "Party" theme re-vitalised though !  Good stuff !

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

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

@BillyG I think the speed depends on how much drink  you have had;)

Aye, there may well be some truth in that...  LOL

If alcohol intake wasn't limited by certain meds I need, I'd give it a try!  ( Mind you, I'm on the painting and decorating today, and my head is spinning from the fumes - that might work in place of the C2H5O2! )

Just caught up on the earlier posts - 

@elcbk - good work on that pinkie (and a tune I hadn't heard in a while )

@stringy - you got that one flowing nicely, 

@ABitRusty - good playing, intonation was fine to my aged ears... LOL

Thanks for everyone's participation (so far, parties never end...), the other handy links etc, and to Emily for kicking-off the party, nice one !

[ I believe I caught all members' recordings, if I missed anyone, my apologies! ]

Here's mine - King of the Fairies. Listening back it sounds a bit rushed; I blame the video camera effect ! ;)

Nice one on a great wee tune @Jim Dunleavy , well done!

Rushed you suggest ?  Hmmm - arguably so, but it works well nonetheless! ( Aye, that accursed red "recording" light - the bane of us all ! ).  Thanks Jim !

@ELCBK - hey, my pleasure !

Dunno about being "energised" - difficult at my age... LOLOL...  I like the slow, melodic pieces to be honest - but then again - perhaps I'm affected by today's painting fumes.....  and perhaps @stringy got it right LOL

I listen to all of you and how skilled you are, and it fills me with envy, but still want to share my poor rendition, only to have something to compare to in the future.

The old curmudgeon!

@JohnG that was extremely good,  and I am not just being nice, you are in tune, and in time, thats most of the battle won. You are obviously putting in the work and its showing, great stuff, said it before you have a good ear.

@stringy - Your comments are much appreciated. I had an interesting problem playing today. I have Bluetooth hearing aids and I also have selfie, Bluetooth camera release for my phone. I accidently had both attached to the phone and, as a result, kept getting momentary muting in my hearing aids that I thought was poor bowing! lol

The old curmudgeon!
