I just checked that Em/C/D/D at my spinet and had an idea. To me it works as a Sarabande if I add a second part. But there should be a long sequence in it where I just rave over above four bars.

So, the Sarabande version will be: Dm/Bb/C/C twice...

...then Dm/C/B/A twice (A with a sus transition, which is the quart)...

...and finally ending with on bar Dm.

Then it starts all over again.

Let's see what I will make out of it, I'm so inspired!

My violin is a 3/4 violin, made for right-handed players, though I play it left-handed. As I felt she was the best in the shop of all 3/4 violins I tried and the luthier agreed. I prefer Obligato strings together with Eudoxa E string. Self-made bow, weight: 24 g / 0.85 oz

So I tried it once with the spinet recording I just made. Finally I was confused and end with a funny noise, which I always to if I mess up a finale.

Tomorrow I have to try the original version you guys used, now it's after 10 p.m. and I shouldn't play anymore.

Thanks for the inspiration!

I will work on that Saraband I made out of it and possibly also add lyrics. Which was not possible until last Saturday's show I had to prepare for. Then Sunday I started to build a sound booth in my apartment, causing chaos like moving from one apartment to another. I had to move things into my bedroom, so the chaos was also in my bedroom, the corridor was crowded with stuff and it was difficult to move around. There was no music in that mess, but today it's coming back.
