@NickC This song is so pretty. You inspired me to hunt for the sheet music so I could learn it. Plus, my sister is quite a good guitar player, and I'm going to share your video with her in the hopes that someday we can play a duet (we're on opposite coasts right now).I’m still working on a video of Diabolico. In the meantime, I tried out an arrangement of a tune I played a lot on PA. I wanted to hear it with guitar accompaniment to see if it would work on a gig. I played guitar and accordion. The pics are just a few pics I had available on my computer on a trip to Naples.
Yes, I believe you are correct, George, that week 21 is this week ending Sept. 25. I'd have to go back and check which weeks your songs were recorded. Regardless, I appreciate your effort and your playing was a great inspiration, especially for me the Frankie Yankovics.Tom
Thanks for setting up 21 week event. I am a little confused as to when the event began. If Week 1 was week ending Saturday May 8 then this week ending Sep 25 would be Week 21. Anyway, I kept a list of 20 songs that I recorded so maybe I started a week late?
Welcome J.N.M. great tune and very well played. Just get me a couple of large Ouzos and I will be up there dancing
Hi... I am new to the community and very glad to be a part of this. This is a piece from the tradition of Constantinople i learned last year and i dlike to share...
Great ideas, Nick! Look forward to seeing (hearing) the recordings.My goal is to build on this challenge. I learned enough tunes to finish out a set worth of music. Now, I want to put together multi-track recordings to 1. send to other musicians as an arrangement concept and 2. to have a version with just guitar and bass that I can play over to solidify my parts. I made a quick version of Battagliero and I'm having a hard time getting the feel down. So, I've been listening to as many versions as I can to try to nail the feel. Once I get that, then I am going to move on to embellishments. (Which there are usually A LOT on the repeats.) I will try to make it more in line with the style, but I will have to simplify a lot.
