Hey all, yeah, no worries on my end.  I understand the frustrations with the piece.  It was more difficult than the initial glance.  Actually, I found part 1 to be the easiest, which isn't what I expected. 

I did make the decision not to join Steve on his great effort, because I really thought that you all should see what a fantastic job he did on all the parts, and it was such a pleasure seeing his work and throwing it all together, that I didn't want to muddle with his performance.  AND, I hate to admit, I was having at least as much trouble as everyone else, so I was nowhere near ready to video.  I could tell that the project was starting to fizzle out a couple of weeks ago, so I didn't want to push it. 

That being said, if there are still any other videos out there, I'm still open to throwing something together, and if you want I'll even make you a vid like I did for Steve.  I also didn't want to post the video of just Steve, so I let him make that decision (with a STRONG recommendation that he take the opportunity to showcase himself). 

That being said, I'm not, in any way, discouraged from attempting to put together another project, but I want to make sure that everyone has a chance to "recover" from this one first, and I also don't want to interrupt anything that @Fiddlerman has planned for us.  blink  I'm actually looking at potentially doing a "beginner's series" of group projects so everyone at my level on up can feel free and unashamed to participate.  If I do that however, it would look more like a duet, than a four part harmony.

Cheers, all!  And again GREAT job by @Steve and a HUGE thank you for sharing his work with all of us!

Really nice job Steve!

I too fizzled out of this - it was just trickier than I could handle... and was no where near ready to video :-(

wookieman looking forward to a 'beginners' project!

Please pursue any projects that you have in mind. I'm very happy to see them happening and even though not that many sent in their recordings, I am fairly confident that there were quite a few looking at your parts and benefiting from the experience.

Even if I start a project we can have others in motion. It's more educational to learn several pieces at once.

Thanks to all for the very kind comments. We all know I didn't do all that well, but I had fun anyway.

Now that's not true Steve ... we all know you did very well.

And I'm among those hanging my head in shame because I just couldn't get my head around that tune.

Sorry for disappointing, when I was sooooo keen in the first place.

And huge thanks to Jesse for all the time spent on this project.


If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.
