If you get a burning urge to do a video on it, it would be much appreciated. Might even be a good candidate for a future Fiddlerman international video project.... just sayin'.

Sorry Keith,

I obviously missed that. I'm glad that some are able to visit Violaman.com

Another (simplified) Ashokan score and play-along - 

The mp3 is synth viola with a transposed A-Clarinet as bass-line (yes - it goes beyond the range of the A-Clar - but it plays OK !)

I know this is the viola site - but - it's nice to play along an octave up on fiddle...

looks good Bill, I have been having a hard time wrapping my fingers around the last few bars of the sheet I have been using as I need to shift up to Third Position. For some reason the connection is not (yet) happening. 

 

I'm not familiar with the notation, "Was... Play an octave up"... Is that simply to keep the sheet "clean", why not just place the notes where they should be?

 

THANKS!

Hia mate - nope - well yes I suppose - the notes on the sheet should be played as shown.  When I transposed the violin score, it ended up below the playable-range of the viola in a couple of places - so - I shifted these little areas up an octave (from what had been transposed too low )

( Yes, I was confused as well ! )

You can have it scored in A as well, if you like....  that's fine - so long as you're not playing along to someone else who's in D.... Arggggg  

( I quite like that sort of thing - fine for soloing and it means the fingering on a D tune in fiddle is effectively the same fingering in A on the viola - and - regardless of key - the tune is recognizable )
