Thank you for putting up the Red Red Rose tutorial Beth!  I just started learning it and love this piece, and it is perfect for beginning shifting, which is right where I am at!

I wondered if it would be possible to put a bug in your ear for a request, that is if there is enough interest and if it would not be too much trouble.  I figure it doesn't hurt to ask!  Could there be an easy harmony bit added to it so that 2 violins could play as a duet?  That would be so lovely- but I wouldn't know how to go about doing it right.

I love Hector the Hero!  It's beautiful on the pipes too ;)

Thank you so much Beth!

I agree. That is such a wonderful piece, even without the shifting. I play it every day with only a few (har) mistakes. But I'm getting better at it.

Another one you might consider is Hector the Hero, a pretty 1903 Scottish lament which I also enjoy and it's even easier than Red, Red Rose. Original sheet music for it is at this link.

 Hi Jenn,

Not a problem at all. In fact there is already one there! It may be hard to detect though, since I'm plaplaying both parts and therefor probably sounds like one violin. I'll try and remember to print out the harmony and post with the other pdf file.
