we picked up an electric 5 string for Mack and her school to use.
For the past couple of years Mark Woods of the Transiberian Orchestra has worked with our students and put on a performance, “electrify your strings”. Today we picked up a used one of his 5 strings. It is a Mark Woods SVX5 Stingray.
any opinions on 5 strings?
will post pics when it arrives
if you can isolate it and not accidentally play the C when trying to play the G. 🙂
I noticed that I angle the bow probably too much when I play the G string (and the E string), so I should get out of that habit. I think I once challenged @Fiddlerman to do the Mendelssohn first movement cadenza on a 5-string, but he didn't see it, or didn't think it was very amusing!
Mack got an Ibanez electric guitar from her uncle that has a number of different pedals. When she got the new violin it gave her something to fool around with. She didn’t know I was going to post these videos. She said she would have picked a better song lol, which would’ve meant practicing and multiple takes...
kind of like candid instead
Just wait until she finds an octave pedal and finds a cello magically appearing as she plays.
