@coolpinkone That sounded very pretty. Thanks.

 @Panda-P  - thanks for the SF party and your submissions - good work!
and @RosinedUp  @Ferret, @coolpinkone  good work - I enjoyed them all !

Finally got round to it - and - as ever - I threw the sheet away. Why? Well I wanted to play-along to Panda's guitar (and do a mix down with her final track...) so I needed my timing to synch as best I could...

LOL - I'm not doing this to bore you all - you can jump straight to track 4 but I thought it would be fun to show what can be be done with a little bit of inventiveness and free software...

So here you go -

Track 1 - just me on EV, no FX - taking my timing and lead from Panda's Guitar track in my headphones...

Track 2 - added reverb and echo in Audacity

Track 3 - mix of track 2 with Panda guitar

Track 4 - final mix with @Panda-P submission

Hope it doesn't detract too much from "how the song should be played" - it was just great fun, and interesting trying this out...

Great one Bill @BillyG thumbs-up

I'm glad you joined the party.

I've never played to a backing track in my short 'career' as a fiddler. 

Will have to give it a try sometime soon.

I hope you gave been giving some thought to the 'International Talk Like A Pirate Day' project coming up next month. Would love to see you there. hats_off

Thanks @Ferret - and yup John, "...talk like a pirate" - I am planning to be there !  I love these little projects...

....  I've never played to a backing track in my short 'career' as a fiddler...

  I find it interesting to try these things - obviously get a "good handle" on the tune to start with, then try to adapt, maybe change the rhythm to "fit" something else that's going on in the backing track - maybe shift an octave for a few bars - and so on - that's why I like to "play-along" with other peoples' submissions - or sometimes a well and professionally-crafted midi ....  

  The end result can sound a "bit unexpected" when first listened to - but that's originality for you, and it can bring a "uniqueness" and personal touch... hopefully without crucifying the original too much !

Very cool sound and nice playing @BillyG and @Panda-P ! Great collaboration!

Here's my contribution to the party. The Scratchy Sisters threw this one together pretty quickly so there are plenty of imperfections.

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

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

Generous soul that I am, I put together a MuseScore sheet for SF.  It's a streamlined revision of Pierre's version, but with chords taken from the alto sax (curse you, Ferret, ha ha) version above, transposed to a C major key sig and D-Dorian.  The only thing I'm not sure of is whether the D on the first beat of measure 5 fits the F chord in that major.  Anyone with an idea about that, please comment.

I'm attaching a pdf.  Somehow I'm still not able to upload MuseScore files, even when disguised as .txt or .TXT, and that hurts.

Thanks for the nice comments, folks. Yes, John @Ferret , those long notes are a killer, which is why you see/hear me falter in one or two places and in a couple others I run out of bow and have to change direction to keep the sound going. I was playing along with Simon & Garfunkle and had only run through it a few times before recording, so I wasn't really confident on the arrangement.

Nice job sight reading on the fly, @Barry !

Thanks Diane, I really want to be a decent sight reader so Ive been studying hard on the Alto clef. Got my practice schedule worked out to cover most of my weaknesses

Squirrel-catching party? I'm worried about you @Barry

Good job on sight-reading, though!
