  • thanks for the welcome :)

  • Thank you for accepting me among so many great professional musicians. I hope to learn a lot and maybe share a little bit what I believe I understand and mostly hear. I'm a self-taught musician but I'm taking music very seriously. I was fascinated by the inversion techniques of Bach when I was learning about harmony, which I did during 3 years. Being Black and Haitian, I have noticed that our music is more intuitive and is being played in such a fashion by our peasants who are totally music illiterate. My research in our music has inspired me some stuff whose execution may not suggest some conventions and fundamentals found in western music. I do sincerely hope to learn more so  I can deepen my understanding about music. Best regards, 

  • Thanks for the welcome! Very glad to be here.

  • Tyler,

    Since you were the first to welcome me, I thought I would afflict you with my first technical question! :-)

     

    I am writing a piece for intermediate level strings. I have written a passage of mostly 16th notes, in C so there are no accidentals for them to fret over, and very conjunct--with no big leaps.  The tempo is Allegro 120.  Is this too fast for intermediate level string players to articulate precisely?  I am thinking that it shouldn't be, but I am not a string player and I have no string players available to me to ask.  Here is an MP3 of the passage.  FastPart.mp3
