While everyone has the cameras out for the project...

Im trying to get this tune down and transition into another smooth.  I heard these two played together so picked them for my set.  Thought might be fun for some.

So for this party you Must play The Carraroe at least twice and then transition into another tune.. doesnt matter what but it must be at least one more tune played at least twice.  Extra tunes are great.  try not to go over 3 times each though.

Sounds good, you had your fiddle ringing like crazy on that tune, spot on intonation on your 3rd finger.

@ABitRusty -

 

 

 

What a GREAT Party idea! 

You did some wonderful playing with these tunes -

they work well together! 

🤔 Brand new jig for me - have to see if I can get rid of a reel in the process. (lol)

I'm game, just maybe not until after Thanksgiving! 

Thank you for sharing this and starting a Party! 

SOUNDS LIKE YOU'RE READY TO JAM!

YAY!

That was so good! I think one of the hardest things is keeping going for all that time! You did it effortlessly!! Very inspiring.

thank you katie!  its a struggle especially when i feel the bow get backwards which it does alot on jigs.  or if i feel like im about to mess up.  kinda like the walking a rail feeling or something.  sometimes all that goes away and its nice..

Here you go Greg, I just painted our bedroom so I knocked this out before, hope it’s what you mean, I played each part of the first tune twice, not had time to practice it this was my first effort, just as I was about to stop I remembered you wanted another tune all I could think of quickly was that one, if you wanted the entire thing repeated it would take me hours to upload so I can’t do that on my connection, bow wandering isn’t intentional by the way, I am not much good at sight reading so other things go out the window when I do, bit crap but best I could do in short space hope it fits criteria.

Just realised I have paint all over my left hand, checked the fiddle and it’s clean luckily.

If the vid doesnt fit the party rule let me know and I will zap iit.

thats some great playing and sight reading @stringy !  thats what i had in mind but seriously not trying to make it difficult..just wanted people to try out carraroe lol.  im stuck on it and want to see if others like it.  really like the vibrato in that.  hoping to do that one day.  thank you for jumping in so quick and i hope the fiddle is ok ... paint wouldnt do good on the strings or body i think.  thanks again!  im hoping to do something like this with banish misfortune into something.  kinda going back over some of the previous stuff and pairing them up maybe.

Nice playing there, and really good transition, @ABitRusty ! Great idea for a party!  Not sure I can get it in before Thanksgiving, but I’ll be there—

@stringy Good work on that, & nice transition piece--I’ve always liked Star of the County Down; I like the different ways it can be played (i.e., fast 4/4 or slow 3/4, etc.,).

@SharonC

May do it again now that I have actually listened to it, but this time without the flat notes, especially b, 😱 in fact I am laughing with embarrassment  it’s so bad, now that I listen properly, this is what you get for months of not really listening to yourself play, Sounds like I have been playing about two weeks, good job I am not booked for the Albert hall lol, the only thing I am remotely happy with is vibrato, which needs a LOT of work and is too thin by a mile, I will improve though, haven’t been paying attention for a LONG time that is obvious, wake up call. This is were a teacher would come into their own.🤓 not enough confidence and too hesitant  with the bow, not enough fluidity, Too rigid. difficult to achieve reading a piece straight off, but I should now have gotten round these problems, very frustrating, but very amusing in knowing your faults but notbeing able to correct them....

@stringy - 

Those 2 tunes go GREAT together! 
Seamless transition! 
Sounded wonderful! 
The Party is NOW official! 

 

Thanks for making this Party special!

Btw, in regards to your reply to SharonC - personally, this is why I'm against playing by sight reading, for Irish tunes.  I'm never concerned about "B" (or any other note), flats, sharps, or the groove - if I learn by listening to someone else play it.  But, then again, I'm just lazy. 🙄

@stringy  thought it was pretty darn good especially considering youd never heard it and was sight reading.  not that you need to but feel free to post as many times as you want in this party. ( not that you need permission..just saying.)  theres several i want to for sure..this being one also..lol. I think it can be smoother and some attention on the bowing pressure.  I felt like i tend to dig in too much and was trying to go lighter but may have swung too lite.  still happy but well.. never satisfied.

If you go looking theres a great performance version which is always the case is Martin Hayes live at Seattle.  you may have looked already but theres also several in more of a session setting that give examples of it in that way. 

thank you @SharonC !  lookin forward to yours!

Okay, here's mine.  Think I almost got lost a couple of times--forgot where I was (and I was looking at sheet music!) lol. 

I followed the rules--played both of them twice, but I'm not so sure I Saw Three Ships would be played in a set, but it's Christmas time now, so what the heck--

@SharonC those go really good together!  seemless transition too.  im gonna remember this set because we have a couple of chances before Christmas to play together at my group so thanks for posting.  As I was watching I was wondering if youd put a duet in the video and very cool how you did it.. always so creative and fun to watch!  liked what you did.  

thanks for joining!
