Post Stick Tune - Paganini Caprice No 5 Excerpt
A very, very rough (and slow) read-down of a small bit of Paganini's Caprice No. 5. I suppose this would be the most recogniseable part of the piece. It was fun, and a bit of a finger-twister. It's only at about 80 bpm, and it's not complete, so please don't hold that against me. I just thought I'd share this bit so y'all could have a laugh.

I didn't spend too much time on it, but it signifies the close of the first 4 hours of today's practice.I was practicing other stuff, this I only spent about 20 min on...
Yes, it's a bit sloppy and kind of rushed - I was kind of working out the bass part as I read it down (There is no bass part really, as it's intended for solo violin) I just used the first note of every beat as my accompaniment.

So yeah, no big whup, just a quick run-through.

Oh, it never gets old (torturing this forum with music). It’s good fun, plus it gives everyone the opportunity to see and hear what a truly terrible Sticist sounds like. Gives a reference point for “bottom of the barrel” haha

Seriously though, I love Paganini so I had to give this one a whirl. It’s pretty tough, lots of stuff going on there... and Yng, yeah I love Yng! I thought I’d try something different...

Thanks for checking it out, man!

Excellent slower version of this, Scott! What's performance tempo, I wonder? Probably something like 240 BPM? I think I'm kidding. That sounds tough to play at human tempo--I can't imagine playing this at full speed. What is the "suggested" tempo for this? And well done!

Suggested tempo is "ridiculously fast" hahaha The Caprices are a lot of fun, a violin benchmark to be sure. Thanks for checking it out, I might approach this one a bit differently I think. Might require both hands on deck to get close to the actual tempo. There's a few sloppy spots, and I was downright lazy with the pulse in spots - but then again, it's Paganini, so I'm thinking that just making it through this chunk in one shot is probably an achievement enough for me. I'll revisit it a bit later down the road probably once I get my chops up a bit. hahaha I've run out of Soundcloud space almost, so I guess in the new year I'll torture the forum with video...

Also, this probably sound a lot better on an SG12 too, which I may invest in. (I am really looking forward to the "have you really explored the range of what you have" comments hahaha :D ) The Rail-board is collecting dust, so I am thinking an SG12 might be more appropriate for what I want to do... Literally just to hit those higher notes... We will see what direction the new year sends me in....

Good fun. More to come... (And yes, I still suck.)

Do it! Get an SG12! (I'm a horrible influence if you wanted to be talked out of it! :evil:)

:D I am thinking hard about it, the idea of an SG12 has been kind of rolling around for the last year or so. Having access to those deadly high notes is more and more appealing haha I may have to avoid this place for a bit...

Seriously, I wonder if there is a way I could incorporate 2 different sized sticks and an 8 string guitar into a show of some sort... hmmn, food for thought once I figure the Stick out a bit better I suppose...

Thanks for checking it out, dudes! Getting better... It's really interesting how every time I do one of these ( haha daily at least, lately) even if it's a primitive, rough thing that sounds like a pregnant yak howling at the moon (yes, that is pretty much my signature tone! :D ) It still yields a ton of ideas that I can use one way or the other...

Lots of fun this Stick contraption...
