I did the arrangement for this project hosted by the "Marijke plays" YouTube channel, and I'd like to invite everyone on this forum to participate. There are parts for violin, viola, and cello, all levels.
Violin 1, Viola 1, and Cello 1 are suitable for intermediate players who are comfortable with shifting (up to 3rd position on violin and viola) and accidentals.
Violin 2 is suitable for lower-intermediate players: all playable in first position but has accidentals.
Violin 3, Viola 2, and Cello 2 are playable by beginners: nothing faster than quarter notes, just have to be aware of high and low 2nd finger on violin and viola.
Parts and click tracks are available at the YouTube link.
Outstanding work on the score, Andrew!
I'll have to see if I can practice enough - things have been a little out of the ordinary around my household lately.
Really appreciate the invite to all of us, I might've missed it otherwise.
🤔... think my 2 oldest Granddaughters will hate me if I don't participate!
I don't know how you find the time to participate in all of these "virtual" as well as in-person activities. I'm jealous I've downloaded all the violin parts and hope to find the time to contribute. Very nice arrangements for this.
I've gotten involved in all these virtual ensembles because in-person music has been so limited for the last year and a half! There's no way I'd be able to continue recording virtual orchestra projects on such a regular basis if in-person orchestras were running on normal schedules.
Just a note: Marijke has normally accepted only one recording per person, so that editing doesn't get too overwhelming. I'd recommend recording the highest difficulty level that you can play reasonably well in tempo.
Thank you @AndrewH. I thought it was my laptop not having enough volume!
I'm thinking of doing Violin 1 or 2. Both seem about the same complexity level. Having a bit of counting problems with the syncopated measures and the slurred triplets! (one e and a two....). Should have it worked out in a few days.
You did a great arrangement for the various parts. I searched Google for this music and discovered it is from a computer game. I'm afraid my knowledge of games is VERY limited, but the music is really captivating.
I will download the new click tracks tomorrow. Hope it helps me hear the rhythm better

The main difference in difficulty between Violin 1 and 2 is that Violin 1 requires some use of third position -- there are some high notes, and also some passages that may be awkward without shifting. Rhythmically, they're similar in complexity, with Violin 1 getting more of the fast-moving notes in a few places.
Hope many people participated in the "Legend of Zelda" GP!
Things didn't settled down around our house until after Labor Day, it was a bit short notice for me, so I just couldn't do it. 😔
I'm definitely looking forward to listening to the completed project - pretty amazing you made this happen, Andrew!
OH NO! I can't believe the deadline has passed. I had practiced violin1 and violin2 parts and hoped to get it submitted.
Unfortunately, I'm in the middle of getting my house cleaned up and ready for viewing for sale. Just put out the realtor's for sale sign last night. Having first viewing today at 1pm.
Hope to have time to participate in the Fiddlerman's Christmas project this year.
