Oh, I was away for couple of days and you have started a real party here! Cool! I don’t know any of these tunes, but it doesn’t matter, I still want to join! I’m terrible at playing these kind of things by ear, but I found that sheet music SharonC added for cello, so I will try it!

Ok, I have never played anything like this so I have no idea if I did it ”right”, but it was so fun! Just tried to let go. 😄🎶

@ABitRusty 

found it and wrote the cello. I did not use the first one. I used one down a little ways, number 10:

Every time I upload anything it is sideways unless I keep doing it over and over and then go into my photos and keep editing and flipping it over and over. If I load it sideways, it uploads sideways. If I do it vertical it still uploads sideways. So, you have to tilt your head.

I can’t do it like a jog, but it is lovely as a ballad! 🤣🤣🤣🤪

@ABitRusty 

I was playing it tonight. It is a little rough yet, but I cannot play it as a jig and, honestly, it is a lovely ballad or slow piece. I can't even force myself to speed it up because I love it slow.

I can post it for you in a few days. This is your party, and it is not the song you wanted in your party, but do you want me to,post it here for you? Your party, you call the shots. 😁

It doesn't take long to do the music as cello. I just take the notes in the treble clef and put them onto the bass clef. Basically a line lower.

I saw where you were going with this, Greg - so I must still be confused about what a "Party" actually is, Mouse.

@ELCBK and others

The Party Room is described here.

Party Room Description

If you still need clarification, please reply to the above linked post with your question. That way all of the Party Room information will be there for members to see. 

I have an idea for a party, @ABitRusty, I am just waiting for the Banished Misfortune to take hold before I start it.
