Re: Practice Video - Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht

Andy, thank you very much for the video. Your right hand looks so much better, and going by what I see (and hear) you seem to be making excellent progress. I would however recommend, if I may, to play the piece a bit slower. The annotation on the score I use (contained in "Im Heimgarten", Band 1) su...

The accompaniment measure 17 of “Einladung” looks like it needs a third hand to play, but that’s how it appears in the book. - Andy
The smaller notes are for less proficient players, ie the easier version, if this is what you are referring to.

Re: Christmas Music

Evelyn, Unfortunately it looks like “Weihnachten. Fantasie” is missing from the book. It should have been score #30, which would have been the back over. I’ll reach out to my Grandmother to see if it slipped in with some other papers. In the meantime though, I uploaded versions of the previous song...

Re: Christmas Music

Thank you very much, Andy! I am looking forward to more, in due time, and if it's not too much trouble, I'd be particularly interested in "Weihnachten. Fantasie" (preferably in treble clef).

Best wishes
Evelyn

Der Nikolaus kommt (Santa Claus is coming)

Hello All With Christmas only a month away I thought I would share with you an arrangement by my late zither teacher, Georg Widl. The two traditional Christmas carols incorporated are "Leise rieselt der Schnee" and "Es wird scho glei dumper". More information here: https://www.german-way.com/history...

Re: Viele grusse aus Seattle!

Thank you, Tom, for the link to a thread I had so far missed. I wholeheartedly agree with Dave, who wrote: “Keep practicing!” is sound advice! I’ve heard of folks trying to learn who pick up the instrument for a day or two, put it down for a few weeks, and revisit it. How can any meaningful progress...

Re: Viele grusse aus Seattle!

You know, with over 100 members here, you'd think that there would be more than a handful of members willing to help the beginners! Hmmmm ... I'll hazard a guess and say that maybe most members are not all that interested, and that's presumably the reason for why they do not regularly check what is...

Re: Viele grusse aus Seattle!

Hi Rita Thank you very much for the video of Tomy Temerson, which I've watched with fascination and greatly enjoyed. He certainly can play and he knows what he is talking about. Re instructions - over time I've come across a few 'how to play the zither' videos available online. Not impressed by the ...
