Hello everybody, today I'm sharing this wonderful tune called Baker's Favorite! Such a cool song, it's my favorite fiddle song so far! I was looking on YouTube for some examples of how to play but couldn't find much recordings of it...

So I tried to add some slurs and trills where I thought it would sound good. Hope you like it. πŸ™‚

Enjoying my violin adventure! :-)

Is that Tommy Unger's tune, Marikoli?Β  If so, you've improved it immensely. If not, where did it come from?

It's a great tune regardless of where it came from, and I'd say you have the definitive Youtube version right now. πŸ™‚

Also, where did the backing track come from?

Thanks @Fiddlerman, thanks @Mark for your kind comments. πŸ™‚

Thanks so much @charles, that's so wonderful to read! :-)))) The tune was written by Larry Unger. Much more I don't know about it... I only know I like it a lot!!! The backing track I'm using is from virtualsheetmusic. I downloaded the book with all accompaniments. I've learned most of the songs from this book now. But it's the first time I've really tried to make it my own. πŸ˜‰

Enjoying my violin adventure! :-)

Larry Unger was the one I meant. My mind flew south for the winter a few years back and didn't come back, just sends the occasional post card.Β  I found a PDF of his music, and I stick with my earlier statement - you've improved it a lot. πŸ™‚
