here's my newest tune-- the Olympic Reel by Mark O'Connor. I found it very difficult and I'm still having quite a bit of trouble with some parts, so please feel free to offer advice. I hope y'all like it!!
here's the link to the song:
There are some times I wish I could play music like that, as in blue grass style, on violin... I'm happy to stick with classical though xD
Very nice job, and in all honesty no one except a musician would have been able to tell you messed up at all. Very nice finger work btw, you have a very good style when it comes to those fast paced notes.
Stop saying you can't do it and actually go try it... Trust me it works.
I feel the same way as you do except reverse-- I wish that I could do all the classical fancy stuff. But... I can't, so I'll just stick with fiddle
Thanks for the encouragement. I do hope that only musicians can notice the mistakes indeed.
@ratvn, StoneDog, and HDuaneaz-- Thanks for the support. I'm glad you guys like it.
@fiddlerman-- I remember you telling me that in the past, and trust me- I try to practice loose. But I always seem to tense up when I have to concentrate a lot (as I had to for this song.) So I guess it's just one more thing to work on... staying loose.... thanks for reminding me!!
DANG! That looked and sounded like a difficult piece to learn. I love the fast pace. Good job.
Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.
