Thanks @cdennyb. Turning 60 has its compensations - I took early retirement a year ago so I have plenty time to practice. Without that there's no way I'd have the time to practice violin as well as everything else. 


I'd like to get involved in a group project at some point. I need a fairly simple one to start with though! laugh

I intended to make this one easy. Don't know what got into me. :(

I am laughing.... not at you...(well kinda.. what got into you.. ??? Your musical genius came out in your arrangement. ... but   don't frown.. be happy!!!!! )  haha.... but you sure got a bit fancy with this one.  

I am going to take it as a compliment.  "we got this right???"facepalmexactly  You  have confidence in our mad wicked violin skills. :)

Anyway.. I read on the other thread that you are getting us some videos and extending the dead line for another four weeks after.  Thank you.. eager eager.. (you did say to keep bugging you...... so be prepared for bugging....bug-1_gifbug-1_gif

I am working on it EVERY SINGLE DAY.  Measure 34-38 and beyond.

@Bill and @cdennyb did come up with some play alongs that have helped me hear  the beat and notes.   Anyone that needs file Bill offered to send you the play along on Musescore... in case you missed the offer.

My advice to everyone that is working on the project.  Learn the notes and the patterns and rhythms as best as you can so that when we get the helpful videos we will only have our problem spots.  If anyone doesn't read sheet and needs help with the notes I'd be happy to help also.  (keep in mind I am rather newish too)

Happy House of the Rising Sun to all.  crossedfingerscrossedfingerscrossedfingerscrossedfingerscrossedfingers
