    Cool things to aim for

    ... in this first assigment:

    - same bass line and harmony as the original
    - triplet rhythmic figures as in the original
    - each instrument should have a somewhat interesting part to play

    Neither transcribing the notes literally as is, nor putting in a string pad is enough ...

    There are many possible solutions, and when you hear/see some of the ones coming up, you may be surprised. And you will understand them better - good points and bad - the more you have grappled with your own versions.

    We are aiming not at OK, but at SUPERB!

    So can we use Pizz Strings for example, the bass line? For some reason I thought we could only use just violins 1 and 2, Viola, Cello, and bass. I was probably thinking too much to make sure I was following directions.

    Yes, any and all string instruments in the orchestra are available. :-)
