Didn't you post a live performance here once Naska. One that you were not so happy about but you did it. :)

Parties on this site can go on indefinitely, @risk. Sometimes they quiet down, then get going again. It's all part of the fun. Feel free to join in this one, if you're so inclined.

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.

It works very simple =) You record yourself playing "Ashokan farewell" and post it here - that's it =)

You're very welcome to join! Happy fiddling!

Welp, I tried this out last night and it didnt go so bad. This morning I figured I'd make a quick video. But I usually can't do anything in the morning and it didnt help I had just gotten over a headache and promptly destroyed the sun tea jar before picking up the violin. Needless to say it was a great example of how poorly i function in the morning. 

Maybe tomorrow. Lol

@risk - no hurry - no deadline - no hassle - when it works for you, it works !  It will be all good in the end !

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

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

I am also working on this still.  I hope to have an updated video soon.

Looking forward to more Ashokan "sightings/hearings" in 2015..... 

Let's keep it going.

If you are new to the forum and don't want to read back.  This is just a thread.. where we are playing Ashokan Farewell.  We are posting our versions, and progress and questions etc.

Feel free anyone to join in.  Feel free to start learning the song now and post your progress.  I started learning this song when we started the thread.  Many of us have come a long way already since that.

Good luck and welcome!!!!
