    Hey again TM!

    Was playing through the Arban version of Venice alot lately and couldn't help myself but play the 4th variation over and over again.

    So I wanted to know from you guys, which variation is your favorite, your least favorite, and the hardest, in your opinions and why!

    thanks!

    You mean to play or listen to? I can't play and haven't worked on the variations yet, but to listen I prefer either the second or fourth variation depending on my mood and who is playing the piece. The first time I ever heard this was with Wynton playing it and at the time (high school) I did not even know so such things were possible. I was ever increasingly impressed with each variation and the fourth one totally blew me away. Almost like when I found an album in my step-dads collection called MF Horn by this Maynard Ferguson guy. Eli's coming and MacArthur park still get me. :D

    My favorite to play and hear has always been the triple tongued one. I don't have it in front of me and I don't remember what number it is. I spent uncounted hours on that one before a recital!

    Hah, personally that is my least favorite and the hardest.

    It is probably my least favorite becuase it is the hardest for me. I royally suck at it, but can play the other ones fine lol.

    It's variation 2, btw :D

    That one is my favorite also, not only to listen to, but, also to play. I like it well enough that I have incorporated it into my daily warmup.
