Thank you, FM for posting it.

That was so beautiful, Pierre, it brought tears to my eyes.

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

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

You're very welcome. Trying to figure out if I can safely upload the sheet music without getting in trouble. Don't have the permission of the publisher yet.
The worse part is that it is owned by several publishers.
The first publisher (Reverb 2 Music Limited) with 66.67% ownership is disolved. Don't know who bought the rights yet.
Music Sounds Better Ltd and BMG Music Publishing Ltd own 33.33%
I found out that as of May 25, 2007, BMG Music Publishing Ltd. was acquired by Universal Music Publishing Group, Inc.
I wrote an email but I doubt I'll even get a reply. LOL

@KindaScratchy Omg... I love  you!!!  I wanted to say that I had tears..but I thought.. I could hear the voices and eyes rolling.."omg..there goes Toni emoting all over the boards again.."   :)

I have to agree.  I listened to it again... after dinner tonight with a glass of wine.

Thanks Pierre. (don't worry too much about posting free music..you give a lot).. ducks at the violin bows coming at me.. :)   anyway.. it is good for us to buy a song or two now and again right?

I listened to Pierre's video this morning and the song was just hauntingly beautiful.  I just watched the video again... all I can say is Bravo!laugh

Ok, so now the question is... who is going to have the guts to post their video after Pierre's?  I'd post mine, but I'm pretty sure it would bring a tear to your eyes...for a totally different reason.beg

What an awesome party!!!

@Fiddlestix : Enjoyed your video! Thank You for sharing! =) Hope You're fine now!

@coolpinkone: Toni, You're doing fine! Thanks for reminder about that piece, i didn't play it for a long time - should not forget it!

@anonkid : Bravo! You're a star already!!! Keep it up!

@gwscheer : Nice duet!

@Ginnysg: That will be nice to see your video! blink

@Fiddlerman  : That was awesome! Thank You kindly!! You won't be in trouble if i'll play it by ear, will You?dunno and:

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. :-)

Can we have this backing track as an mp3 file? =) Or those who has rights will be mad on You? I'm not competent in those questions, sorryduncecapfacepalm.

And do You have a Yamaha silent series there?drooling XD (not sure about the model from this point of view).

 

Good job everybody! You've made my day!

I might gladly give you all the music and the MP3 ;-) I just can't do it openly here at this moment.

Thanks for the compliments.

Naska, yes, we are almost finished our 2 month process to get approved for Yamaha. We are approved authorized dealers for ALL their stringed instruments. I'll tell you all about them when you are ready. We need to wait from one last department before we can list the instrument online. The Yamaha credit department. :-) It's all just part of the process, that's all. I love the Yamaha electric violins, especially the SV130 for the built-in reverb and pre-amp combined with the lowest relative price.

Wow, awesome contributions so far, folks! Everybody has the participants to thank.

I know there are a several members still working on their waltzes, so don't anybody think that this party is over.  I personally have several more I could do, but the perfectionist in me is holding me back.  I'll probably suppress that perfectionism some time and put up another one.  Meanwhile I thought I'd resissue the invitation and summarize the participation so far.  It might jog your memory of how sweet some of the playing is.  Or maybe you're tuning in late and don't know what you've missed.  V denotes video, and A denotes audio.  All performances are acoustic violin only, unless noted otherwise.  I didn't recognize some of the pieces.  Any omissions, errors, or other shorcomings are unintentional.  Please PM me with any corrections or improvements to the list.  The first invitation went up the evening of July 16, and Steve broke the ice the next afternoon.

V 7/17 Steve, Black Velvet Waltz
A 7/20 RosinedUp, Let Me Call You Sweetheart
V 7/21 Ferret, Redeemed
V 7/21 KindaScratchy, Josefin's Waltz, Violin and Guitar
V 7/21 Helvetika, Molly's Waltz
V 7/22 Barry, Tennessee Waltz, rerun, with backing track
A 7/23 DanielB, Annie's Song
V 7/28 Fiddlestix, Medley: The Band Played On, Cruising Down the River on A Sunday Afternoon, Three O'Clock in The Morning.

A 7/29 CoolPinkOne, Greensleeves
V 7/30 Anonkid, Brahms' Waltz from Suzuki Book 2
V 8/01 gwschweer, Take It to the Limit, electric violin and electric guitar
V 8/08 fiddlerman, Dark Waltz, lead and backing arranged by fiddleman

We're at an even dozen so far.  Fiddlerman (thanks, Pierre!) is a tough act to follow, but everybody can forget about outdoing him any time soon anyway!   But I know there are still some popcorn kernels out there getting ready to pop.

I am terribly sorry, RU, I wasn't even thinking when I posted, I just figured everyone would know the name's of the three song's I played, but then again most of you are youngster's.

1. The Band Played On. ( Casey would waltz with the strawberry blonde)

2. Cruising Down the River on A Sunday Afternoon.

3. Three O'Clock in The Morning.

In that order.

Helvetika played; Molly's Waltz

gwscheer played; Take It To The Limit.  (Eagle's recording)

And I can't place, Katie's.

Great job everyone.

 

Ken.

Hey, if these are competitions we'll take the fun right out of them. Please don't see it that way. The idea is to play a waltz and that is all. All waltzes, levels, players welcome IMAO.

At work in Malmo Symphony Orchestra 4 of us got this brilliant idea that instead of each one of us packing a lunch for our lunch break (which was much cheaper than going out everyday)that if we took turns packing a bit more for 3 others, we could get by with packing 1 lunch every 4th day. We called it the lunch club. (lunch clubben in Swedish)
It started out great but in time we started getting fancy. One person couldn't fix food without trying to top the last persons food. The lunch club was great but we couldn't keep going.... It died because the pressure was too great to fix an equal or better lunch. We all regretted it but none of us wanted to start it up again.

The thread is a party.  If you have played at any parties ever, then you know there are usually some who play better than you, some maybe not so well as you.  But it is only competitive in a very informal sense and the competition factor isn't the important part. 

Everybody who plays contributed to it being a good time.  Those who maybe didn't get the nerve up to play themselves, but cheered other on, also contributed to it being a good time.

The only way the party is going to dive, is if nobody plays.  Then it's no fun.

I personally heartily applaud everyone who has played for this party so far.  It may not be over yet though, the stage is still open.

Competetive spirit is inate, its gonna happen. People are always lining up and comparing. We are our own worse critics and I for one dont want to be shown up by a 8 year old who obviously plays way better than I. But those are my own personal demons, I wish I had her joy de veuve in playing. I really have to concentrate and focus to even attempt these tunes. So, once I can put my ego aside and get out of my own way, I will relax and enjoy submitting a waltz. I am very much enjoying watching and reading everyones posts. Its a great party as far as I am concerned.

Thanks HatefulPain,

Your timing with this post was perfect. The tune is called "Lavenders Blue"?
I don't think I've ever heard it before. Thanks for introducing it to me.
My ears are fine ;-)

Very nice Gry,

I listened to it on a youtube video too now and it's getting stuck in my head.
You'll be having your 1 year anniversary soon for starting to play the violin right?

thumbs-up
