Well, this is not a creative or original version...I am new to fiddling, so far the best I can do is learn/copy from other people's versions! I learned this tune slow from Rayna Gellert's YT, and practice it with Strum Machine:

Winder Slide

I think Bob picked a great tune for us all! smiley

Aw thanks Peggy! I've enjoyed all of your recordings too!
I've got a viola lying around gathering dust (my daughter took lessons for a few years), I never even thought to try it with fiddle tunes but I realize it could be quite satisfying. And I've been kind of eyeing the 5-stringers too...

Random Music Thoughts -
- For me, Winder Slide is only about a week old, so after it ferments (festers?) for a few more weeks, maybe something that is a bit more ME (instead of pale imitation of Reyna) will grow? And she's got this great relaxed shuffle rhythm in her version, I can kind of get that when I play with her YT but I lose it when I play with Strum Machine (it's hard when the chords are going along straight with no "swing"). But I covet her rhythm...
- While recording I played it several times in a row, each time thinking, "I can do better than that." But when I went back and listened, I liked my FIRST take the best...Recording is so weird, LOL!

I enjoyed Bob picking the tune and the way it was presented <3
I kind of missed the start of this.

Now listening to the interpretations of Bob , Peggy and Rich. That is so cool!
Can I give it a try too?

NCnotes, you play incredibly good!

I find it funny to read you are new to fiddling, you sound to me like a pro.

That you can copy others must mean you are that good, if I try to copy others I always sound different, I just cannot do this, I always invent an own simplified version of the tune I hear haha and cherish hope that one day I might start to sound like 'them'  <3

I agree that NC does sound more like a pro than a beginner!

Anja, I could never sound like someone else much either, always sounded so contrived and overworked whenever I tried...I just simplify and do the tunes my own way...the only way I can manage, it seems. We're all different...some people can grab onto the styles of the great fiddlers from the past or even current great fiddlers, and some people just sit down and figure up their own way, however they can manage. It's all fun and we are very lucky that the world is filled with both types of fiddlers! All types of fiddling are great fun.

Thanks Anja, I just started fiddling last summer, but I played violin (classical) for many years growing up. That technical training enables me to copy people if they play slowly enough. BUT fiddling is so much more than technical stuff - just because I can copy their notes, doesn't make me a good fiddler...

Peggy is right, everybody has their own unique path and style, and what's best is if you sound like your own musical self!

Yes  I remembered you said that , still find it funny, you sound so good :D

But I agree although I have no further ideas on what's coming next, that fiddling is much more than technical stuff, but I'm just here figuring out the basics so far so in fact I wouidn't know because I'd be happy with all of the technique :p   I hope my own musical self can make people dance one day! ;-)

This is what happens when I try to figure out the tune from reading the sheet music WHILE playing as found on:

folktunefinder.com/tunes/7703

In ADAE here.

I found the Rayna Gellert version on her website, very nice, I should have a close look at that video.

Way to go, Anja!! :-D

In that video Reyna plays it fast at first, but don't go away...
when she repeats it, she goes slower...and slower...and slower...(I actually have no idea how she manages to do that without getting lost!) By the later parts of the video, you can hear/see everything she does!

Nice job, Anja! Were you reading from those notes you linked as you played?

Yes, but I stretch some notes too long, like the B  in here, that might change the rhythm.  I never have the rhythm right  from the first time, I mean I can still read notes a bit, but I am  not that good haha.

I think we all could use a little brushin' up on rhythm, no matter how we learn a tune, hey?

Cool, Pete! Nice fiddling! I especially like the double stop that gives a minor sound at the end of the A part. Whole thing sounds great. Thanks for participating and sharing!

Since I was playing around with iphone and BandLab - in other post BandLab vs multitrack DAW - Discussion Forums - Fiddle Hangout

It is not really how I would normally play it... just messing with technology.
