I had to break it down into snippets, again because I don’t do YouTube or Facebook, etc. Sorry for the inconvenience. Not after any critique. This was just a performance.

Thanks, @GregW

The outfit was intentional for the video.

I used to make those hats. I made that one. I made one for a lady I worked with back in the mid 1990’s and she did the sweatshirt with fabric paint for me. She put green beads shaping a bunch of shamrocks all over it.

That wasn’t the hat I wanted to wear. I made one a little taller with a wider black yarn strip for a black band, and a sparkly shamrock pin attached, but I could not find that one. So, I was stuck with the short one. I started making another hat today for next year.

Happy St Paddy's @cid and thanks for that rendition. time_to_drink

Now, I understand why you have to break it up. I downloaded all 7 segments and joined them with my video editor, but the file size is too large to upload.

Exacyly. Even if you get the file size to be 2mb, which the message you get if it is too large says is the max, you have to go a tad lower, because 2mb must be where it is too large, not the largest allowed. It is around 6 seconds, but for some reason the viola ones had to be between 5-6 seconds. Most of the 6 seconds ones had to be a tad smaller.

I've been so busy that I kind of neglected Saint Pats day here.
On the bright side, we had fun jamming Saint Patrick Day tunes on our host boat on Saturday evening. I wrote out a lot of sheet music for the event in case anyone is interested.

@Fiddlerman Sounds like fun on the boat. Myself, I am not a fish. I love to go to the ocean when visiting either of my daughters, but just to watch and listen to the waves. I love them. The bigger and louder the better, as long as I am on the shore.

I will not fly over the ocean, so no trips to Hawaii. I can’t stand the part of taking off crom LAX when we are over the ocean when the plane is turning to head back east.

Irish Eyes are not shining if I am in the water in a boat. 

I was going to post the version of When Irish Eyes Are Shining I did on my viola, but those clips, for some reason had to be shorter than the violin clips. It was odd. So, I decided against it. I noticed an annoying issue with my bowing in it, anyway, except someone might have been able to tell me why it did that. That would have been for the critique section, though.

Hope the little clips worked for you. I think I broke it up okay. It was the best I could do, and stay under the 2mb limit. Let me know if you need more space on the site, I can delete the videos. They take up more “space” than a YouTube link, or other online link.

Thanks for the post!

@Fiddlerman  Thank you. I played the video for my 96 year old father-in-law today. The non-segmented version. He is Irish. He really like it.

Thanks for the songs! I have downloaded them. Imhave most of thise in many Irish CD’s.

Oh, do I get a badge for Sharing a Video performance or are they professional performances? 

Thanks again, for those songs, much appreciated.
