Alrighty, I made it through part 1 fairly decent, although I'm not sure why there was some broken glass in the kitchen when I finished. I need to work a little on sliding into third or fourth position. Lots of work on my scales. At least in D. On to parts 2-5. No where near ready for recording, but still need the click track. Does anyone have time to post a practice clip I can play along with? 

 

Thanks for the kick, keep it coming...

I'm going for this as well. All the parts seem perfectly playable on this one, so no reason not to. 🙂

@Fiddlerman I have been practising 2 through 5 and they sure are nice! (ok not so nice when I play them, but that will improve). I might try to transpose Violin 5 to bass for a cello if I have time. I think it is aiming for that register anyways. Lots of fun!

Hey Ripton... 

I tried recording the main part for you several times.. and always kinda failed.. so I just took one of the 'better' versions where I actually got to the end and uploaded it to youtube.. see if you can use it for learning the other parts, though I think it's kinda horrible 🙂 Still afraid of the camera and the permanent mistakes it records... so.. that's causing me to tense.. and make mistakes.. 

Now.. I don't have a metronome running there and just roughly remembered the rhythm so it might be off.. still maybe it's good enough just to hear the harmonies at work.. 

Cheers

Anyone who wants to transpose these parts to cello? I would be fine with it and grateful. 🙂

Is everyone cool with 60bpm?

If so, I will make a quick click track. 🙂

I think you are doing great!

Look forward to your submission later on. Also, I would appreciate that you, and everyone else that does the first part would also record one of the other parts as well. Not a requirement but it would be nice to have all the parts well covered in the project. 🙂 Keep up the great work.

Uuuhhmmm.. I'll certainly try. Initially I didn't even think I'd get this far with the main part since the song was kind of new to me. If I can get this to be 'compatible' with a metronome somehow, I'll get to work on the other parts.

Are you going to make videos for them like you have for the He's a pirate project?

Here is one cello part to start with. It is the equivalent of Violin 5. I will try to do a few more. Any glaring errors, please let me know!

And here is a cello part that is Violin 4. MuseScore is cool!

That works for me assuming you mean dotted 1/4 note = 60. 🙂

Somebody mentioned 120 above, which I assumed was 1/8th note = 120 and I found that dragged. Also difficult to find enough bow for some of the long notes.

If there's any interest in putting the 6th part back in, I wouldn't mind playing it down an octave on viola...

I think that would sound awesome 🙂 Let's see what the rest have to say 

Edit: Actually it just occurred to me that Fiddlerman might want to play that on the electric violin with an octave pedal and that might be why he removed it.. (Since that kind of arpeggio backing wouldn't sound very nice if more than one recording was present) - Just speculating here 😛 but it was strange that everybody liked it and it got removed.. so it might be because of this

Electric + acoustic on the same part might be awkward. But otherwise, I don't see any problem with more than one person playing it.

The only reason I see for removing it is that it's the one part that most first-year beginners would have trouble with.

60 bpm works for me....... at least I think it does! Time will tell, right? LOL

Love all the excitement that is building around this project!

Here is a link to a youtube video to practice with if it is helpful. Key of D, pretty reasonable pace:

Thanks for the click track, now I can get down to business. Thanks @Fiddlerman ! Those long notes are a bit of a challenge...good to see (hard on ears). Cello long notes are better for some reason, maybe better bow speed because I have more bow.

Just an observation (slight error), in every part, measure 20 contains an extra eighth note.  I'm assuming the quarter note at the end of each was meant to be an eighth and not a quarter.  Also, Violin 1 is the only part that has endings numbered 1 and 3 instead of 1 and 2.

Yup well spotted @wonderputz - it was already mentioned here https://fiddlerman.com/forum/u.....-2/#p88746    I think it is just generally understood to be some kind of weird representation-error (although I'm surprised Finale allowed it.   I don't use Finale, but maybe it has some kind of "you know what you are doing, so just enter the score free-format" option, relying on the score writer to simply get it right / do what they want...)... dunno dunno I found it curious as well 🙂

Thanks for pointing it out again - saves possible confusion... 🙂

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

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