Hello everyone!!violin

Today we start an official

  Fiddlerman Beatles Party with a PRIZE

treble-1226It is quite simple.treble-1226

Make a video of yourself playing a Beatles Video.  You can play any instrument, any  version of any Beatles song. united_kingdom-4178The song you choose can be any Beatles song or "former" Beatles song... let's open this up to the individual Beatles members and their latter tunes.  🙂

The easiest way is to make a Youtube video and post the link.

This is a for "fun" post party, not a critique section.  If you want your video up for critique, please cross post in the critique forum.   Feel free to dress up.

Here are some play-a-long Tunes Fiddlerman has posted on the sidebar of the forum. 

And I love her heart

Check out the section for free sheet music

The end date will be announced soon.  At the end date, each song posted will receive an entry into the raffle.

The winner will receive the famous Fiddlerman Hat and Fiddlerman Rosin.cool_gif

Please tag me for questions or clarifications.

Who will be first??   I am tagging a few people quickly whom I see online to spread the word.  Please tag friends on the forum to join in. Everyone is welcome.

I have this 'older' (meaning from December 20 lol) one when I was practicing :)) Not sure it qualifies, but currently I have no Beatles songs on my mind.. Also have a bunch of early recordings of Eleanor Rigby hehe.

@Mimi Aysha Great News.   I have to polish up a Few. I have Yesterday, Imagine, and actually a whole book that I bought.  I have been also working on "And I love her.."   I learned Let it Be by Ear.. at least the first two Chorus'... I wonder if I should throw that up.  I need some privacy at home as well.  🙂

Yeah!!!!  Who is next???

I think Let it Be is awesome - I saw they have a video and play along type thing on youtube, so I'll try (not too many notes, so hopefully can hit some of them!)

I love Let it Be.... 🙂  I might just put out what I have.   I have to record on Phone or Ipad Pro. But I need to start recording for my own growth and to watch that sneaky crooked bowing arm.  This Party is great because I can use Mandy's 100 challenge to work on songs for the Party. YAHOO!

Hmmm, great idea but I don't know if I'm going to find the time to do it! 🙁

Things are busy chez moi at the moment (my wife is laid up with a fracture and I'm having to do everything from the cooking to the ironing!).

@coolpinkone As I said elsewhere, you're doing great 😀 

@Mimi Aysha Very nice!! 😀 

 

Fun fun party 😀 I dug out the Beatles sheet music I recently discovered hidden in my Beatles memorabilia collection, it's for piano but it'll work for me 😀 Started noodling with it last night, will see if I can pick a tune to focus on today 🙂

@damfino and @intrepidgirl 

Thank you.

I haven 't been recording I had major frozen arm and should from nerves. It should go away.  Also I play better when I play without sheet.    I have so many songs,tune, pieces that I am playing these days, I use stacks of sheet.

I have some Fiddlerman free sheet but I also bought a book.  Its got a lot of songs.

@damfino and @intrepidgirl and @coolpinkone

Thanks guys, so sweet of you - I just rewatched it - awful, but I committed to it.

Inspired to learn more - I ran out of bow, was playing with only the top end, left hand all wrong, (probably right hand too) ran through it once - made me realize that even though there may have only been 7-8 notes in the whole song - that I can play, I probably only hit the right ones less than 50 per cent of the time - wow

So prep (duh!) - I keep watching other vids, but to watch myself I can learn a ton from my own mistakes....enlightening!

Also, now I know my hubby loves me, as he never complains when I play ...unlike the dog!
