@stringy @SharonC @elcbk thanks everyone..had fun making it.  Heres the backing I came up with based on what I heard on the Gloaming album Ive listened to..in case anyone wants to play with.  Told @elcbk this was one i had to learn so this party was a great place/time to give it a go.

Here's a little History of "The Hornpipe".  🤔 - thought "Sailor's Hornpipe" was written earlier than 1770! 

The Hornpipe

I suppose I'd better consider recording the Viola version of "Sailor's Hornpipe" that I previously mentioned (Post No.3), since I stuck my foot in my mouth by saying it was "easy". facepalm I won't make that mistake again. (lol) 

Really have my eye on one unusual Hornpipe - "unusual" because I've heard/seen it played in a minor key (haunting), when it's usually played happier in a major key.  It's got me hooked!

Also, just discovered I'm infatuated with another Hornpipe - "The Peacock's Feather".  Actually, it's No.1, because there is a "Peacock's Feathers Set".  Learned No.1 right off, it's played in minor (could be dorian, I haven't check'd) - No.2 is in major, might learn it too. 

Anyone else currently working on a Hornpipe for this Party... or another one for it?

I supplied a list of Hornpipe suggestions, earlier - if you need help finding one to play. 😊

Sorry to put you all thru this - here's the last of my attempts to record a video outside, today. 

The cats all blew away, so Kevin had been holding a rag over the mic on my phone... didn't help.    Even had to keep tightening the bow hair! 

JUST ENJOY BEAUTIFUL LAKE ST. CLAIR!

Glad I got outside for the 2nd time in over 2 years, but think these videos will be my 1st AUDIO DUBBING project ! 

Anyway, I did have fun for a few moments. 😊

@ELCBK - Fun stuff! Given the conditions, I think you did great. Especially loved your smile at the end!

@JohnG , @Mark -

I really appreciated that you watched what I tried, in vain, to play! (lol) 

Just posted a little bit about my area & the Great Lakes in the Fiddlerman Party. 

Too bad there were no boats in view for this video. 😔
