Red red rose, newly sprung in June....    :)

An experiment/practice-session with expression and dynamics on this nice traditional Scottish air...

My love is like a melody, sweetly sung in tune !  (That's part of the lyrics, hope I got close !)

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

TYVM @Mouse and @GregW - I like the slow airs- they give you a chance to play in "auto" mode - without thinking specifically about individual notes, score sheet, or timings and instead to home in on the feeling and expression you want (or try) to impart to the take.    It becomes no longer about the individual notes (and indications on articulation and dynamics etc.... where/if they exist) on the sheet - it's so much more than that for a solo take - something I continually aspire to and occasionally feel I start to get close to what I hear in my head...   

To get there can be SO darned annoying...  but sometimes, just sometimes- we get close to what we want...  

Love the instrument (any fretless one!), love the journey....
