Virtual GreenshootsTraditional folk tunes, played slowly to learn, then faster.
While the regular Greenshoots meetings are suspended due to Coronavirus/COVID-19 (since 16th March 2020), I have recorded versions of the tunes we might have chosen to play, and made them available below. They are played as we would in Greenshoots - starting slowly for a couple of times, then speeding up, and then speeding up again. Play along! If any current Greenshoots members want to record and contribute other tunes from the tunebook in the same style, then have a go and let me know.
Go to Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4, Week 5, Week 6, Week 7, VE Day, Week 8, Week 9, Week 10, Week 11, Week 12, Week 13, Week 14, Week 15, Week 16.
I don't think it is currently technically feasible to run a live virtual music session between a dozen simultaneous amateur players online, without specialist hardware and software that is hard to set up. Let me know if you know otherwise - I've tried JamKazam, and although it may work for some, It hasn't worked for my trials, and setup would stretch most amateur players. For the technical background and some possible workarounds, see my article on Virtual Music Sessions.
