    Bianca, I’m using the C string version, as I like it better. What do you prefer?
    And I will no doubt be doing a slower tempo. I always do. Because I prefer songs slow (lolol). How are you doing with memorization? I usually am good at that but this one is killing me with all the subtleties.

    Great job everyone. Amazing how you can post so fast and so well.

    @lisadmh, It’ll be C string for me, too, and slower tempo 🙂
    No chance to play it from memory within August, so most probably I’ll record it while playing from the muted play along tab to avoid having to turn 5 pdf pages on the screen…
    Good luck with the subtleties! I know exactly what you mean

    By the way, last year I’ve seen a few performers at various festivals playing from an iPad, turning pages by tapping on something on the floor with the foot. Anyone knows how that works / what it is called?!? Would be useful longer term…

    Biancak, they may be using an app called OnSong. I use it and have thousands of songs stored. It does too much for me to discuss. But you are able to scroll music or use a foot pedal to control the music. I prefer the foot pedal. Just go to the Apple AppStore to check it out. It does cost but is well worth it.

    I’m still practicing the Rainbow Connection, but I find that the rhythm of bar 31 in the interactive player audio doesn’t seem matching with the tab. In the downloaded tab and the tutorial (25:25), the 3 notes last for 1/8, 3/8, 1/4; but in interactive player’s audio (non-synthetic), it sounds like 1/4, 1/4, 1/4 to me? Thanks!

    Aloha everyone

    I don’t wait to be great to share; I share so I will become great one day

    So here it is

    Thanks to Stephen’s feedback last month, I think my right wrist is not bending as bad as before.

    It is quite an experience recording myself. The recording made me realize the places I need to practice further. I felt my play sounded so much better than it really was. 🙂 Recordings don’t lie.

    Feedback welcome.

    @mark1256, thanks for the tip. Good to know there’s a workaround if memorising fails 🙂

    @qiuyan – You are correct, he played it as quarters in the performance. I updated SS to reflect this. Good catch!

    @qiuyan, your observation is correct. The performer’s liberty 😉

    Heard this a lot watching tv during as a kid, so the tune is quite special to me.

    Chose an easier song this time with Rainbow connection. I decided focus on the little things to making a song more alive with the suggestions on sustain and accents.

    Thanks again for this sweet arrangement.

    Never was a huge fan of this song until I learned this arrangement. Now I love it. So much fun to play.

    Hope you don’t mind a second version of Rainbow Connection, but I wondered what it would sound like on the cigar box and really liked it. I think I played it better too because I had already posted so I played more freely, less nervous.
