I can't seem to find the Sky Boat Song on Violaman.com  Can anyone help me with that.  I can transpose the violin one, but... if it's already done... 🙂  Also noted on violaman that the Ashkowan Farewell isn't available, though it is on the sheet music list.  Does anyone have that as well?

Thanks

I DO NOT BELIEVE IT - @Oceanside Girl - and everyone - the pdf and .mscz files I posted above had viola playing on the bass clef - sorry about that - I'll leave it anyway - here's the viola part on alto clef...  man... facepalmfacepalmfacepalm

  As it happens - the actual notes are the same - makes no difference whatsoever to what you play but if you NEED the alto clef 'cos that's what you are used to - then use this one !

  D'oh !   Bill hits himself around the head with a wet kipper.....  ( Don't ask - it's a long-standing and traditional Scottish custom! )

Thank you BillyG.  I did get through it on the violin music, but never quite know if I'm playing it on the correct octive, so thank you. It's sometimes hard for my mind to go back and forth, but I'm getting better at it.  Might you have the Viola Ashkowan Farewell?

You're welcome!  No, I don't have the AF - I play it ( or at least a simplified version of it ) on violin by ear.   I'm busy right now - but it'll only take 10 or 15 mins to score it up for viola in MuseScore....  I'll do that first thing tomorrow - I'd like to have it myself anyway as an "octave-down backing-track" for fiddle play-along....  so it's not a problem - it would be nice to have....  I'll get back to you on this tomorrow...

Here you go @Oceanside Girl - a simplified (no shifting, no ornamentation) viola version in key of D.  It was not possible to transpose it "cleanly" an octave down as in 3 or 4 places it goes below C3 ( i.e. unplayable notes on viola ) - so in these areas (which I've marked) I shifted the run-of-notes affected back up an octave.   The mp3 file is at 96bpm and has a simple A-clarinet bass line...  The MuseScore file is attached as well if you/anyone wants it...

@coolpinkone I played the Skye Boat Song at my last recital as I love it so much too.  If you like that one from Outlander, check out Commin' Thru the Rye.  It's an old celtic song that Bear McCreary uses in Outlander too.  

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

You'll find them here @Ripton -

http://violaman.com/forum/shar.....ong/#p1984

and

http://violaman.com/forum/shar.....ell/#p1985

They're in the "Forum/Share sheet music" topic - I can't add them to the actual site's "Sheet Music" page - that is maintained by Pierre

THANKS Fiddlerman. 

 

OK, question here. I'm working this one out OK, but I'm confused with the annotation in measure 7, or is that bar 7? It also repeats on measure 15 and 23.

 

Two notes slurred or more precisely tied, but an down bow and then an up bow articulation on those two notes

 

(This is from the sheet music Violaman posted in the Sheet Music section, I also saw it here some where as well, but now I can;t put my finger on it) 

 

thanks

Great question. Holding the 6 beats in one bow direction in a slow tempo is not easy. I made the notation easier by placing an up bow for you to get more bow. The reason I don't put the up bow on the next measure is that one should not make the up bow audible. You should try to hide the bow change and place it either a bit earlier or late of half the duration.

Also, this allows you to continue the piece on a down bow as it should be.

More commonly, in notation, a composer will write a down and up bow right next to each other to indicate that you change when you want, in some cases to show that you should not change at the same time as your stand partner in order to camouflage the sound of the change.

OK, that makes sense. Sort of what I was thinking, but not in those exact technical terms.. lol.. 

 

Back to bow exercises....

 Thanks!  thumbs-up  - I learn something new every day !   Cool !  ( not that I'm ever likely to play alongside a stand partner ) - but it goes to show some of the subtleties encountered and used in notational form...
