pretty world


daydreams about night things


buzzbuzzbuzz






purple lilies polka
here's the version from   from rehearsal
instrumental, focus on the fiddles.
(lenny, empasize bass drum on the 1 beat, as it is a native american tune and thats what they do, in fact maybe only bass drum)

this recording starts odd, so listen where the phrasing and beat are starting the 2nd time around

echos of the ozarks  G  instrumental  rehearsal version

this tune is usually in D but i'm going to play my hello kitty strat on this so i moved it to G.  fiddlers all play melody, and if you can figure out some harmonies, save them for later in the tune for specialness. acordian, if you learn the melody or good jazzy variation, take a solo. guitar, maybe two, will take solos and if there's any special guests on melody instruments, they might.

it's such a pretty world today  probably C
and here's the lovely version from our rehearsal!
this is our lush, angelic fiddle and choral number.
fiddlers unison just like eliz plays it, but if you can work out a nice harmony, i'd like to hear.

there's a vocal echo on a few lines where you will
repeat what i say then ooo ooo ooo
i'd like some lush, long sweet fiddle notes thru a lot of it while i'm singing.  also note the stops.
females especially, sings ooooos on the bridge (and though the rain may fall etc.).
