Very impressive from all of you.

Barry, is that the new CVA400? Great sound, and performance. I don't remember if I ever heard you play vibrato before.

Thanks for all the great submissions. :)

I knew you would like it. I know you didn't want me to send you one but I couldn't resist. Didn't want you to quit just because you couldn't afford one.

Glad to see you enjoying it!!!

@Shane , the sheet music for O God Beyond All Praising looks very challenging but you got it! Beautifully played.

Hello, I've finally got round to playing some songs this week! I attempted Simple Gifts (Lord of the Dance) - the one hymn I actually enjoyed singing in school and used The Dubliners version instead of Fiddlerman's as that is the one I'm most familiar with. :)

The Dubliners version is here if you want to listen.

@coolpinkone cheers Toni :)

I'm not overly keen on the tone, it sound quite harsh to me. Not sure if it's the fiddle, the bow or my beginners skills. :P

I recorded a few pieces last night using my new portable recorder thing. It was late at night and I was on my partner's acoustic, so it I was using a practice mute.

Bach's Lullabye, though I think one would be hard pressed getting to sleep with this version.

Londonderry air, though a lot less airy and a lot more shakey. Perhaps I should have chosen a faster tempo!

Nice sounding violin!!!!    I like both of your submissions. ( I had no idea O God beyond all praising is Thaxted).  I learn something new everyday.  YOU did a great job of that!
 

 That's exactly what I was thinking! Great job, @Shane!

 @SilverHalide and @FirstPancake - Great stuff folks!   And I just caught @Shane 's second post (must have missed it earlier ).  Thank you all !

  I love your enthusiasm, well done!   And it's great to see so many submissions on @coolpinkone 's thread, great idea Toni !

  Right, 7am here - need to pack the car and head off.  Away for 8 days - just hoping beyond hope I can get internet access where I'm going or else it's gonna be a case of cold-turkey for me....

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

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

@FirstPancake , nice selection of tunes! Have been playing the Suzuki version of Long, Long Ago, but it has a different feel in the key of the Fiddlerman version.
