I still remember when the Beatles first arrived in the USA - quite an uproar! 

Their 1st impression didn't set well with me - "I Wanna Hold Your Hand"... repeated, over & over??? 😳 and I thought their clothes were ugly, which is funny because most people were concerned about their 'long' hair. 🤣 

SO, GLAD I KEPT LISTENING OVER THE YEARS!   

 

@Katie L -  

Fabulous PARTY! 

Splendid work playing "Hey, Jude"! 

Are you planning on learning more of it? 

Your new recording set-up is PERFECT!  

 

@maudmaud -  

Marvelous "In MY Life"!  

I haven't heard that in a LONG time. 

LOVE your creative videos!

Glad that you joined the Party!   

 

@ABitRusty - 

SMOOTH "Eleanor Rigby"! 

Has to be one of my favorites! 

Really enjoyed listening!  

 

- Emily

 

Check out this thread from back in 2018 (before my time here), it's kind of hidden - so many newer people may not know about it, but it was basically a 'Beatles' Party, before we really started all the 'Parties'.

@wtw -

Sorry, almost missed yours! 

Outstanding, "Yes, It Is"! 

LOVE the beautiful sound you are achieving on your Viola! 

GREAT vibrato - especially on the lower strings! 

Really glad you joined the Party!

Thanks @ELCBK . And thanks for the link to the previous party-like thread, I hadn't seen it.

@Katie L , same, there are too many. I'd stick to the slower ones though, on the viola.

… er, I was wondering, is it acceptable to transpose them (in order to get easier fingerings) ?

 

@stringy thanks for joining, good job ! @ABitRusty enjoyed listening to your Eleanor Rigby too. Beautiful song.

@Katie L Wonderful idea for a party! Congrats on your two year mark!  You’ve made such great progress.  Sounds excellent.  Your video setup looks really good, too.

May take me a couple of weeks to join—got a few things I’ve got to clear from my plate first, but I’ll get one in here!

@wtw @maudmaud @ABitRusty @stringy I had to catch up on everyone playing!  Excellent work, everyone! So many good choices--smile

Thank you for reminding me.

@stringy -

WONDERFUL "Yesterday"! 

Seems like just yesterday for all these Beatles tunes, too. (lol) 

Thanks - you always help make a great Party! 

- Emily 

 

@Katie L -

Plenty of tutorials with play-along sheet music for "Hey Jude" on youtube - even a "Super Easy" violin one.

Recorded quickly this "For no one" the other day (not perfect as usual), it's just audio so I'm attaching it directly.

Sounds like you're having fun!

Thanks Sharon and Emily I think my recording has made life a lot easier ! I remember when I recorded Ode to Joy I had my phone balanced on the door handle and the whole time I was hoping no one would walk in. Not what you need when trying to play violin !!  I might try and move it back a bit so my whole arm is in view kinda need to know what my wrist is doing !

I didn't realise this party was here, but since I just posted a Beatles song seems like a good idea to add it! It's one of my favourites - Let It Be.

I'm liking the ones posted so far on here - good work. thumbs-up

WONDERFUL PARTY ADDITION - The Beatles would approve! 

Forgot to ask, did you also play the piano accompaniment? 

Nice boost to Katie's Party, hope others will join in! 

Thank you!
