    A fiddle tune with the Stradivari

    Here is an Irish Reel done with the Stradivari Solo Violin.

    In this lively tune, the Stradivari did a superb duet and what you hear are two Strads playing the same part.

    "Lord Gordon's Reel" is a very popular piece among fiddlers and has been considered a real test piece for fiddlers. Originally written in the 1700's this tune was popularized by the famous fiddler Michael Coleman in a 1930s' record.

    Enjoy the music and do a little jig.

    THIS IS GREAT!!

    Two strads together sound wonderful!! Brilliant! Definitely "Irishy" What a great tune! The strad sounds better with each new demo!

    Thanks for another great demo.... now I got drool all over myself

    Great demo. I'd love to hear it repeated four or five times, each faster than the last - double the tempo and make respectable bluegrass (is that an oxymoron? No, those guys play too good...)

    Also like to hear it with just one Strad, just for the contrast - but if you just ship the violin you could just post the midi file and we could all try it for ourselves...

    (Just kidding, Gary - do what you have to to make it right. But I definitely have plans for this baby...)

    Yes, it's another evidence of the wonderful flexibility of the library.

    Like a true violin, it can play whatever a violin plays!

    It's a trick, right? What's with the little green fellow poping up on my screen when this plays?
    It's another great demo for SSV! Can't wait to get mine. I've already written a piece called "Fiddle Styxx" with GPO violin but will wait till SSV is ready.

    Very cool- I immediately craved a Harp's Ale. It reminds me of a little pub I go to in the East Village that has Irish jam sessions every Tuesday night. People show up woth their irish instruments and jam. It's a lot of fun. Maybe I can start showing up witha laptop after this product gets released.
