The title says it all....  for those that are curious, use the forum search (advanced mode) to find posts relating to ITLAP Day 2016 and 2017.

This is just a reminder / warning that we may even get that fearsome pirate lass, Pinky la Cool ( aka @coolpinkone ) to join in - arrrh ye bilge rats

Folks can make their "pirate" videos ( any old sea shanty or, indeed any old tune will do nicely really ) and post here.

I'll most likely set up a SteetJelly session as well if we get a few folks to join in - let me know !

Here's my post from 2014 - the year I started playing fiddle - have a laugh !  ( yeah, I had issue with the "green screen - well - it was a sofa cover.... )

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

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

What a great video Billy, I really enjoyed ? You’re a real pirate on that big ship and you can even play and dance at the same time, well done. I love you’re enthousiam, it’s really motivating!

Thanks @mookje 😀 This isn't that fast, I'm purposely playing it a little slow so I can pay attention to my timing. If you look up others playing Soldier's Joy on youtube, they all rip through it way faster than I can right now, haha 🙂

Thanks @bocaholly I have been enjoying my elbow giving me a break this week (last week was a bit miserable). I've adjusted some things around my desk at work that make my arms stay a little straighter during the day, and I think that is helping. 😀

Nice rendition of Soldiers Joy, @damfino !

@BillyG 's 2014 video prompted me to look up the video I made for ITLAPD that year. I did The Mermaid (pardon the lame pirate costume):

Always a fun theme, Bill! Guess it's too late now to make a new video for this year but maybe next year. 🙂

When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low,

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.

Ahhhh - the "Scratchy Sisters"  🙂  🙂  🙂  - I remember that WELL- and it's not a lame costume, it's awesome Cap'n Scratchy !

Thanks for that Diane !  clapclapclap

And nice work on Soldier's Joy @damfino - I like that version ( I have a somewhat different B part - but that's fiddle tunes for you ! ) - thanks for posting and working through the elbow pain !

Well done all !  1st-place

@KindaScratchy, 
Glad you reposted that video of you and your Doppelgängers ... 

Besides the well done music and the super costume(s), I'm surprised Fiddlerman didn't invent a special badge for you for "advanced video editing" 🙂

Thanks, @KindaScratchy and @Mark .

And I love that video, Diane 😀 Thanks for sharing it again 😀

@BillyG Haha, yeah, I think the B part I play is what is typically played by the flute players when the tune is played in an old time jam. My sheet music has it a totally different way, but when I've heard this played by the locals as the group, this is how it sounds standing back and just listening. So I decided to play it the way I always hear it, lol.

 Well, that is no bad thing !   Play as you hear it. 

  Some of the tunes I play are recognizable to no-one but myself LOL !  ( Well, I exaggerate - but - certainly not as scored anywhere.... 🙂 )

  And that's exactly how tunes evolve, way to go ! 🙂
