Oh, and Ken @Fiddlestix : I think it speaks volumes about a fiddler's dedication when he seems to give equal weight to his hospitalization and a fallen sound post in a single sentence. :)

Glad you're OK.

 

LOL, Diane.   roflrofl

Me and my guitar twin's contribution to the fiddlerman Waltz Party; had to squeeze it in between two trips this week so with only a few hours into it , it is not as polished as i'd like; but hey, its a waltz party, not a gig, "hope its up to scratch"

LOL,

It's amazing how much your twin resembles you. ROFL
Cool, thanks for joining in.

I especially like this party because Waltzes appear to be so incredibly versatile and it's by far the most popular party here for now. :-)
I planned on joining in as well but..... I know, excuses excuses......

I had to join the party cause I love waltzes. Of course this one is a little special.I purposely played from the back side without a shoulder-rest so that you can see my connection to the violin from back and under.

I'm going to give away the sheet music that I wrote but need to find out about the legalities of giving away non public domain sheet music.

Also, sorry, I couldn't resist marketing our instruments. It's my way to survive ;-)

The piano part was written into finale and made into a playback file. I have it but am working on a new project for violinists to have more cool music minus one files to have fun with such as this one. :-)
