A bit tense today, so I'll have to work on this more, but since I had everything set up for recording the County Down GP - here ya go. 

 

My version of Cecile Corbel's "En La Mar"

If googly is correct, then this translates to something about the Sea - hope it's okay.

@elcbk thats a cool tune with alot of forward type momentum.  It feels like its pulling the listener along.. very nice and great playing.  like your rhythm here!  havent heard before.

@ABitRusty , @Mark -

Thank you for listening! 

I'm hoping that with a little more practice I'll be able to loosen up & smooth it out (maybe even play all of it in tune). 

Any suggestions you might have that could help me get the 'feel' of the tune better - would be greatly appreciated! 

 

...Thanks for the great Party, Stringy!

@Katie M , @wtw -

Thank you, appreciate you listened! 

Sorry Katie, I'm not very helpful, just wasn't really thinking about any specific bow strokes - except to keep it light .  I was more preoccupied with whether to use pizzicato or bowing at the beginning & still trying to figure a better ending.

@ELCBK  Enchanting tune! Great playing--I think you’ve captured the Sea-ness feel smile

Thanks! 

I'm laughing, because 'sea-sickness' actually came to mind. 🤣

Nice playing Emily thanks for joining in, like your version, not had time to comment this week as I am in Budapest at the moment. I think your intonation is bob on by the way;)

@stringy -

Thank you! 

Nice to hear you are traveling again! 

Do you take your fiddle with you? 

Listening to any traditional folk music?
