@Jim Dunleavy  I am sorry to hear about your wife.  You are a good hubby to take such good care of her.

My first post I will dedicate to  your fine lady.

Cheers.

Toni  

Thanks Toni. 🙂

She's been ill since the beginning of December, but she's slowly getting better now. It was caused by osteoporosis and didn't show up the first x-ray so we didn't find out she had a break until just a couple of weeks ago when she got the result of her mri scan. It's supposed to take about 3 months to heal properly.

Funnily enough, I was practicing tonight and saw an arrangement of Let it Be in one of my karaoke books - but I see Mimi is already going for that one.

Well done those that have posted vids so far!

Mimi will not mind at all if you do the same song - it will probably do it more justice! - might be able to pick up a few tips from you too... all the best to your wife, poor thing, thats got to be rough.

I agree...duplicate songs are cool.... 🙂 Go for it @Jim Dunleavy 

@Ripton I really liked your performance. Totally great.

@Mimi Aysha you are lucky that your hubby loves your playing.  I like it to....I am sure that he is happy to have the musical joy reverberating in the house.

@Fiddlerman 

I haven't set the deadline.  How about March 15th?  that gives everyone about 6 weeks to practice, learn a song?

Sounds great to me. We don't want to prolong it indefinitely so that no one ever gets a prize right? 🙂

I'm having trouble settling on a tune, haha. I've been noodling with Blackbird, Ob-la-di,  Yellow Submarine, and a few others. I'm thinking Yellow Submarine might end up being it, though... hmmmm....

Sounds like fun Coolpinkone! I want to try to do Eleanor Rigby. Is it ok if I have someone help me on the video (I'm an adult beginner and still self conscious about playing by myself)? I will split the prize if we win the raffle lol. wink

Thanks, @Mimi Aysha 😀 I wanted to dig into some of those notes more, but my bow hasn't been biting the strings the way I want it to lately. I don't know if the hair is wearing out (it's over a couple years old now), or just the dry air from the furnace... even though it's my main bow, I still don't know if I use it enough for the hair to wear out or not, haha. I'll have to get my teacher's opinion next week.

@damfino 

I don't know either, but that little bow movement you did sounded really good to me when you played those quick little notes....that has to be hard, to get them just right, and you got them all...awesome!

I just got my new bow from fiddlershop, and I love it - I guess I was using a little cheapo one and the difference is pretty amazing, sounds a lot deeper, and kinda echo which I am not sure is right, but it makes the notes join together which is cool. For sure makes me feel like more of a pro when I hit the right ones.

This is becoming a lot of fun!

@Fiddlerman Thanks 😀 That's actually one of my old Beatles records, I was happy I managed to find a way to hang it for the video, haha. 

@Mimi Aysha Which bow did you end up getting? 😀 I have a couple bows on my wish list from Fiddlershop, just have been waiting until I can afford one. My dog is making me go broke, haha.
