This is an old tune I have redone can’t remember the original name but I have given it a new one specially for this occasion, first tune I thought of when I heard my neighbour from hell is selling his house, I was dancing with joy, just hope I now get someone good next door

Can't ask for better news than that! 

Maybe you better run out and buy a lottery ticket, while all that luck is in the air. 

Great playing - really enjoy it! 

But, shouldn't you be playing "Blue Skies"? 🤗

Thanks greg, I am praying I get a violin teacher, but I think thats a fairly long shot, just have to wait and hope now.

Thanks Emily, I have been really down for the last six months, I am hoping my constant run of bad luck is going to change. I didnt realise. how much pleasure just plinking along gave me until it got severely restricted

That’s amazing news Stringy, really happy for you ! Hoping for loads more videos from you now! Are you still going ahead with your extension?! Imagine if you got a violinist as a new neighbour … or a violin teacher ! You never know 😀

Probably still go ahead with the build, I have been talking to builders and such like. I have found I will probably need a seperate space for practicing depending on who I get, and if I get a young family I will need somewhere quiet to get away, like Emily says really I need a lottery win. My playing has really suffered over the last six months its been very frustrating fitting in ten minutes here and there as I used to do two hours solid a night, now I spend all the time I have doing scales, I have just started practicing them in thirds, which is good for double stops as well as intonation, the reason for me doing so much scales is because I suddenly listened properly and found I was about 3 cents flat all the time, dont know if you noticed that.

my intonation has improved on the b and c note which I have always struggled with but I can now hear  those and other notes much better,  like a switch being turned on suddenly, takes a lot of fixing though. lol

I love playing on the front porch of the cabin. Great acoustics. Last summer my neighbors down tbe street goes, "WHO WAS PLAYING A FIDDLE, DID YOU HEAR THAT LAST NIGHT" gulp, ah yeah that was me, not sure what else to do.  Now I'm nervous. "Well", she said, "I play cello and I loved it".  A big whew.  We should jam I said but sadly she no longer has her cello.

Ripton would be great if I got someone like that next to me, your cabin sounds great, I can imagine sitting on the porch playing. conjures up images of the old hound dog lying there and a jug of moonshine close by, sounds good to me anyway. That would be a good night few of us on fiddles and a few on banjos and guitars, my idea of heaven, of course we would have to play Irish as well as blue grass ;)

@stringy Great, happy playing!  I think the tune is called See you later, Music Abhorring Neighbors  🤣 Just kidding. Glad that situation is changing for you.  Hoping the new ones are more agreeable for you! crossedfingers

Great job Stringy,

When I first saw the title I thought we had a post in the wrong place. 🤣
Your playing is sounding more fluent. Keep up the great work.

You should give us another tune in here. Use the chorus from “Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye”

Hope your new neighbour is more tolerant Stringy. Another musician would be awesome. 

 

Great job on that tune, by the way.
