I was digg'n around in the 70's and found treasure!  

Jethro Tull's "Aqualung" (1971), performed by the Hampton String Quartet. 

...just goes to show we can play this, too! 🤗

 

A little unexpected Pop-Rock (wish I'd found a better recording), Supertramp's "Logical Song" (1979), performed by Felice D'Amico - very fun! 

Just Being Contented Smiley Have some fun!

Love finding some of my favorite music played by strings!

My teacher on viola

She's also a permanent member of the Bootleg Beatles:-

I think she's hiding behind "George Harrison"

@Gordon Shumway -

Thank you!

Great "Mr Blue Sky" (love ELO) - love your teacher's viola! 

Love The Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby", too. 

BUT... Eleanor Rigby is the 60's (not the 70's)!🤭

How about a Father & Son Cello team from Italy? 

"Stairway to Heaven" (1971 Led Zeppelin) - performed by GuerzonCellos, Enrico Guerzoni and son Tiziano. 

All the effects are ACOUSTIC!

...Violists may be interested, too!

I can't help but want to give merit to where it's due, so here's another Cello performance!  Great inspiration for 5 string Fiddlers, Violists and Cellists! 

"Layla" (Clapton/Gordon - 1970 Derek and The Dominos), performed by RMS Cello Big Band! 

 

 

Maybe more swing'n than rock'n, but couldn't resist.

We're YOUNG at Heart! 😉 

Maybe I am turning this into a Cello thread, but these guys are GREAT! 

"Immigrant Song" (Led Zeppelin 1970) - ACOUSTIC performance by DeGambas. 

 

"Smoke On The Water" (Deep Purple 1972), performed by Melo-M! (also Acoustic!)

Finally - I've run across some free video scores for strings - string orchestra!  

 

From KANSAS - "Carry On My Wayward Son"! 

 

From JOURNEY - "Wheel In The Sky"! 

 

From BOSTON - "More Than a Feeling"

 

From TOTO - "Africa"

Much, much, more here - 60's, Beatles, Film,  a nice variety of genres.

Kammermusikensemble Laubenheim - YouTube Videos

...bummed out - actually thought ZZ Top's "Gimme All Your Lovin'" was a 70's song. 😒

I found a Violin accompaniment for the Eagles' - "Hotel California"!  Can be used as a 2nd voice with the melody! (at ViolinParT)

I also found an orchestra score for Deep Purple's - "Smoke On The Water", but you probably have to cast it up to a big screen to see it well enough to use it! 

From Hal Leonard Orchestra - arranged by Larry Moore.

 

From QUEEN - "Bohemian Rapsody"!

 

From LED ZEPPELIN - Melody AND 2nd voice for "Stairway To Heaven"

MANY more scores (including film scores) for Violin here.

Sandy Herrault plays a great violin cover of Lynyrd Skynyrd's - "Simple Man"

 

PINK FLOYD - "Comfortably Numb"!  Played by David Piché (Canada) on EV.

For VIOLA - really nice play-along sheet music video from Chromatik!

For Violin - from Female Solo Violinist.

For Violin - from EasyViolinLesson.

Had to share this video of Alex DePue and Miguel De Hoyos playing some of my favorite 70's tunes!

...I'm in heaven, but still wish the video quality was better (aren't we spoiled?).
