    Re: free trio and solo music from Evelyn

    I think, from the above two posts, that folk might not be aware that Evelyn passed away on Tuesday, November 12th - just two months ago. Her music will keep her memory alive in the hearts of so...

    Re: 2019 Tune-A-Week Project

    Glad you are recovering, if slowly, Jill. Looking forward to your new postings when you are playing-fit again. Are you looking foward to your return to home turf?
  4. Re: Wrote me another song... and recorded it.

    You create great songs, Dave. Lyrics and arrangements are very powerful.

    Re: Another day, another song...

    Good song and recording. The arrangement suits your song.
  6. Re: Help with time signature: Lankum - Old man from over the sea

    I agree with foldedpath that it fits into a 6/8 rhythm. The fiddler seems to be syncopating his pizzicato picking by omitting beats in each group of six, but overall you can count through the tune...

    Re: Dan Beimborn & Kevin Macleod 2007

    Great playing, Kevin, and so good to hear two folk so tuned into each other.

    Re: The straps I ended up making

    Good work there, Gunnar. They look the part.
    Pops1, that one has me intrigued - what is the trick in making such a strap?

    Re: post a video of yourself

    Interesting, Jo. The instrument's tone suits the Django backing. I loved your final flourish with the pick!
  10. Re: create TAB from standard music notation ?

    Musescore does this if you add in a new instrument and make it a TAB format rather than standard notation. StuartE's link will help you to do this. You can add in more instruments to a score as...
  11. Re: Sunday picking sessions at my house are keeping me alive...

    Never mind the age thing - I date from 1944 anyway! I live so far from Canada here in Scotland yet I collaborate fairly regularly with a Canadian poster (Ginny) via the internet. Keeps me young and...
  12. Re: Irish Mandolkin Weekend Intensive Workshops Feb 7-9 and April

    Glad to hear you are in recovery now, Jill. Hope 2020 is going to be a great year for you along with your return to Ireland. Your postings are ones I always look for on the Cafe.
  13. Re: Sunday picking sessions at my house are keeping me alive...

    Dagger and Simon, thanks for your kind responses. I still remember that great session we had a few years back up in Kevin's place at Achiltibuie and the afternoon in the Coigach Community Hall. ...

    Re: post a video of yourself

    Not only do you build great instruments, Jo, but you then play the music that goes with them! 7/8 sounds like a beast to handle; I got lost just trying to count along with your playing!

    Re: Random note generator

    My first thought too, Ray. It looks like Simon wants to identify any note up to the 7th fret on the mandolin? An ear-training exercise, perhaps. There is probably some midi device which can do...

    Re: I started a website for backing tracks

    An interesting idea, Gunnar. Some of us do collaborations over the net via the SAW group, but your idea seems to be a very sensible one. Hope it gets good responses.
  20. Re: Sunday picking sessions at my house are keeping me alive...

    I can certainly endorse your thinking. Regular music sessions at home and in other venues have been a huge benefit to me following the very unexpected death of my wife just over a year ago. Family...

    I have just uploaded a video to the SAW group earlier today and, like Martin, I marked the video as NOT for children. It seems a way of passing the buck to the individual rather than the corporate...

    Re: Hector the Hero

    Nice to see this great tune being revived here again. Here is a version I posted back in 2010, with my late accordion partner Derek MacDonald (no relation of Hector's, he assured me).
