I've been fooling around with this and thought it might be worth posting, especially since pirates and drunken sailors are already represented.

The original as I have it was arranged in G for the violin. I've got two viola transcriptions/transpositions here.  I put the first one in F, starting on the D string; it gives me the giggles by going all the way down to the low C. Play it at a fast enough clip on the right viola--which admittedly I can't quite do yet with any kind of clarity--and it sounds kinda like someone is doing something rather physically improbable on a cello ;) .

The other version is in C, which I chose because it uses essentially the same fingering as the violin.

 

Now all I have to do is figure out how to attach 'em. Hopefully it's doable from a Mac.

 

 

(Edited to add: Nope.  Ain't gonna happen without changing some settings somewhere.)

Ooh, looks promising so far; let's find out ...

First try doesn't seem to have flown; Error 109 - Actual mime type doesnt match file type.  Trying something else ...

Yea verily, I think this'll work.

Thanks, HC!
