We trust you will agree that classical strings can create pretty, contemporary sounds. Bonnie Rasmussen is a professional violinist and teacher, and gathered many great ideas from playing in string quartets and ensembles at weddings, church services, symphonies, and other recitals and events. In most of these songs, you will think you are hearing a small orchestra – but most of the parts are multiple tracks arranged and recorded by Bonnie.
What kind of songs?
• Contemporary songs by Michael W. Smith (Agnus Dei), Tom Fettke, Twila Paris, etc.
• Wedding favorite: “Pachelbel’s Canon”
• Most-played song in the world: “Amazing Grace”
• “Civil War” TV mini-series theme song: “Ashokan Farewell”
We purposely included a variety of themes, to keep the brain sharp, and to show how versatile the violin and viola can be.
Several songs use Bonnie’s electric violin. Can you find them?
