Jingle Bell Rock (flute duet)

This video of Jingle Bell Rock was just a bit of Christmas fun, but to my surprise, it has become one of my most-viewed videos ever!

One of the trickiest things about playing a duet with yourself is getting the timing right, and also managing the tuning.  What you probably can’t see in this video is that I’m wearing an earpiece, which is playing a metronome to keep me strictly in time!  In terms of tuning, I think this video works quite well because I’m using the same instrument to play both parts.  It’s much more tricky to navigate tuning issues when you’re dealing with different issues, as you will see in some of my later videos!  (I’m looking at you, Walking in the Air)

Anyway, no particular technical tips on this one.  If you want to play it, just pop on a Christmas hat and enjoy the festivities!  Merry Christmas one and all x
