    Haydn Dance - JABB & Solo Strad

    Here's an original piece named by my daughter called Haydn Dance: http://garritan.com/mp3/HaydnDance.mp3. It was written in the style of River Dance music.

    This one features the Garritan Solo Stradivarius violin which has been mutilated to sound a little more like an electric violin.

    The accordian, soprano sax, piano, acoustic guitar and drums are JABB. I've layered the single and double headed toms in the last section of the piece for the bigger drum sound.

    The strings are GPO. Brass is a mixture of JABB and KHSO Emerald. Uillean pipes are Roland XP-30. Percussion is a mixture of libraries including JABB & GPO.

    Synth pads are the Arturia MiniMoog V & CS-80V.

    The electric and bass guitar are real.

    Jim, this is superb work; thoroughly well
    written and rendered. Great job on it, and
    a great listen.

    Very much enjoyed!

    The sense almost of smaller but connected
    movements or episodes leading into that power-
    house main drive in this worked extraordinarily
    well, I think... and I particularly admired some
    of the string work.

    Thanks, David!

    I'm going to redo the violin part with the new Strad 2.0 which will fit much closer to the sound I was going for.
