Very nice, @Georganne ! You've inspired me to get going on my own video.

I'm curious: do you play left handed or did your webcam or software reverse the image?

Happy Happy to see everyone playing. 

I  have played this song everyday .. over and over...  I really like it.  I have a couple rough spots on the easy sheet I am using.  I am going to research some of the other sheet to see if there is a better option.  

Having a Blast.  Happy Monday and Happy Ashokan-ing.

Nice work @Georganne   Thank you !

I'll see how my free-time goes and hopefully post sometime tomorrow - I can't miss out on this one!

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

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

It's the weekend.  Time to get your cam on!

ha ha.. so true.. I might go out of two tomorrow.. (with the Traveller)... I might post a sound clip.. or report my progress.  I still have two parts that are bugging me.  I  haven't had time to research "other sheet" to find those parts to see what I can do.

okay.. here is week two..

I really can play it better.. there are mistakes..but I just wanted to share  in the Violin-a-long.

I have two parts that are giving me fits.

Sometimes.. (when not recording.. I can make this sound prettier..not so rushed and more fluid). Oh well.. gives me a lot of room for the next sample.

Anyway... I am working on it.. and having fun .  I  learned the lyrics to the first verse today.  (yes, I cried).

Happy Weekend.
