    This week's winner is Little Judique, which was submitted as an old time tune. I am posting this from my phone, so if someone else could post more on this tune, I'd appreciate it! Merry Christmas!

    Indeed it is an Old Time tune - French-Canadian I think. Here it is on a Vega Tenor Banjo tuned GDAE.

  3. Marcelyn
    That sounds great on the banjo, Eddie, especially with all those triplets. I gambled on learning this one early when it almost won a few weeks ago, so I'm glad it made it. Here's the ABC...

    Here's a version of Little Judique from an old LP by a fiddler named Andy Dejarlis.

    Just a note that Andy Dejarlis plays it BABA, not AABB.
  8. Eddie Sheehy
    So does Eddie when he plays it with Eli Greene's Cakewalk...

    I've been working from the Andy Dejarlis version and will post a version when I return home tonight or tomorrow

    Still not getting the fast bits, and watching back it seems very rushed, but it will have to do for now; hopefully will come back to this one in a year or something.
  11. Marcelyn
    I was pretty impressed with your fast bits, Neil. I sort of bypassed those in this version.

    Brilliant, it works really well with the open string drone, never thought of that; nice tremolo at the end too.
  13. Marcelyn
    Thanks, as a matter of fact, I stole the tremolo finale from you. I'm still working on those fast parts. It's a really weird feeling to have my brain sending messages each time but my fingers completely ignoring it. I don't think I've practiced a song that had a part quite like that quick AG#ABA flourish. I'll try it out in a year again too and see whether my fingers don't listen better. I notice they're still popping up too high as well, so that's probably a big part of the problem

    You guys are too hard on yourselves, I think you both did great.

    Hello to all! This is my first entry into the song of the week forum. I'm just learning the mandolin and I am excited! I was inspired by some of the other videos where people have played along with other recorded tracks of themselves. I decided to try and see if I could create a video where I play along with myself...literally....so here's my first attempt!

  16. Marcelyn
    Welcome Bob, and great work. I'll bet it's nice playing with someone who can practically know what you're thinking. If more people tried it, I bet there'd be a lot fewer band breakups.
    Thanks Eddie, now I'll spend the afternoon being hard on myself about being too hard on myself. It's a disease.
  17. OldSausage
    Well done Bob, both you and Bob played really well.

    Nice work everyone. Bob, that was a great first post. What video program did you use to duplicate yourself?
    I haven't been getting as much practice time as usual because of the holidays, but here is what I have so far.

    Nice version, laura;

    Bob, should you not change your user name to twofinebobs? Next time could you shake hands with each other / yourself at the end? Good work.

    Thanks for the fun comments, everyone, from both of us ;-) I used iMovie 09 on my Mac with it's green screen function. I recorded a background of the couch and then set up a green sheet that covered the couch and the wall behind it. I took a video of myself with the mandolin and layered that on the couch, and then I took a video of me with the guitar and layered that on the mandolin and couch. It was fun to try! My screen was not perfect - if you look on the left side of the video, the shiny lines are the edge of the sheet. I took out what I could.

    I really enjoy hearing everyone's videos of the songs. It's really motivating me to keep going on the mandolin and finally learn some tunes. Thanks for having this forum, and Happy New Year!

    Bob and Bob - You guys are having way too much fun. Thanks for the explanation on how you did this. It sounds pretty straight forward but will probably take me a year or two before I figure it out. You sounded great. Thanks for your posting and welcome to SAW.

    Thank you gentlemen! I'm excited to be part of the group! Nice to meet you all!
