That was fantastic Naska.

You've really come a long way. Only comment I have for you right now is that your left elbow swings out to the left from time to time. Try to keep it straight under the fiddle unless you go up in the positions in which case you would swing under to the right to come around the violin for the reach. As you can imagine, if you need to go up in your positions on top of swinging to the left your arm would be working real hard.

Your right hand wrist and finger flexibility is a model for all to check out.

You should be proud of this one.

Thanks for the post. Keep up the great work. smile

Red Wing? Aaahhh! (Bob Wills holler) I do a good Johnny Gimble style Red Wing with the extra "rolls" and some double stops. Pretty tune.

 

@Naska- Nicely done!

Thank You! I'll try to. My teacher says exactly the same... But it's quite uncomfortable to keep it straight under without swinging out when i play on A or especially on E facepalm but i'll keep trying... birthday_balloonbirthday_balloonbirthday_balloon

That was wonderful Mad Wed! I hope to get something posted on here tonight.

A little history where Red Wing was derived from (originally written in the late 1800s by Robert Shumann called The Happy Farmer then music for Red Wing written by Kerry Mills and lyrics by Thurland Chattaway in 1907):

Barry,

On the sheet music the 2nd ending has a G, F sharp then F natural.  I know it must be me but it just doesn't sound like the way you play it. Do you play it G, F sharp, F sharp or G, F sharp, F natural?

I might be to blame for the sheet music not being right. I just wrote it by ear.

Yes Barry, I agree. Learning to play by ear is great for many reasons. Looks better when you perform and one can often give more feelings in their performance when not focusing on the music.

I believe also that it is extremely beneficial to be able to read music as well.

Particularly when it is desired to keep maybe a dozen people on the "same page" . What happens if I and maybe ten people play their favorite separate versions at the same time?

Fact is that I probably wouldn't play the written music anyhow but it is as least a common starting place and I know what everybody else is likely doing. (which I would also know live)

However, I'm sure that the "sound engineer" will manage to sort it all out. 

I will sort out the music here with MGN guitar chord changes but that's not the easiest way.

True. Jamming with a rhythm section is easier and more enjoyable. You want chords in there too of course. Piano or guitar is great to have.

I'm glad to hear all this about rhythm because that must mean a click track is not far away. dancing  

My "tricks" depend somewhat on tempo and I have learned on this Forum that a click track is needed for recording because a simple metronome might be off.

If not an actual click track then how about a tempo for practicing to match the click track when that is officially released ?

(the MGN guitar track?)

Barry, can you pick a tempo? Everyone is free to give suggestions but I don't really care what tempo we pick. The tempo that MGN chose is fine for me but could be too fast for others.

I think it's time for me to give it a rest with Red Wing for the night.  I was sitting here playing with my electric and went to get up and get something from the printer.  The cord was wrapped around my foot so the violin went flying and then my little Honeytone amp went next.  Gracefull I'm NOT.duncecapdunno

Is your violin OK? How about the amp? Sorry to hear it.
