While you are working on this piece, you might find it enjoyable to play along with this on musescore.
@stringy - man - you like a challenge !!!
Good progress though and thanks for sharing it - well done !
ELCBK's suggestion is a good one, I use MuseScore a lot (as many here do) for entirely-new-to-me pieces. Even used it for some fiddle tunes found on thesession.org (expressed in ABC notation) which can readily be imported to MuseScore ( under the "Plugins" menu you can add the "ABC Importer" if it's not already there)
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
emily, may give fhat a try, to ne honest though I will never play in an orchestra so I am not that concerned about being exact.
Bill, yup I like a challenge its good for the brain cells, as well as good for a laugh. For fisdle tunes I learn nearly all by ear, Know they are a lot easier but thats how I do it, one of the reasons I suppose that you never get the same tune played twice exactly the same way;) I use a lot of the harder classical ones like etudes to work on different aspects of playing, like I have noticed my bowing going off course lately, and fitting in slight vibrato which I am practicing doing to give a bit of colour.
