Barry that was great.  I have actually been working on the same song.... although a much simpler version (I got the music from a children's music book....just about my speed)  . hummmm, I may use a different song to post here.

Thanks for posting, it was beautiful!

Ginnyg said hummmm, I may use a different song to post here.

Inevitably there will be overlap in choosing tunes.   I don't think anybody should feel too bad about doing the same piece as someone else.  Especially for beginners, it's not so easy to switch to a different tune.  IMO the important things are to join in and have some fun and show some of what you can do.

Great work by everybody so far.  The party is going strong and is not close to ending.  I can name half a dozen members who are still working on their waltzes.

Ha - the hardest part is trying not to smash this computer when its says 'reconnect, try again".....thanks for the encouragement and kind words, everyone!

@KindaScratchy - that was absolutely beautiful!  There is no scratchiness to cover up! What kind of violin do  you have?

i think everyone has done such a great job, thanks for sharing and inspiring me.  I'm waiting for someone to do the Waltz Quadrille now, that was my second choice and my mom's top request, as she used to dance to it way back when..

@Barry : I love the Tennessee Waltz. I've been working on it. It looks simple, but I find it's actually tricky. You did a great job with it, as usual.

@wookieman : Yup, that's my Epiphone Hummingbird. It's my third guitar (fourth if you count the little nylon stringed guitar that I first learned on) and my favorite. My husband gave it to me for Christmas a few years ago because I love hummingbirds almost as much as a I love guitars.

BTW, if my bowing looked kinda stiff, it's because I had just finished painting a bathroom a little while before. My bowing arm was pretty sore. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. That and the fact that I was being recorded, of course. I do appreciate the nice compliments, though.

When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low,

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.
