Too percussive for me! ;)

BTW, go back and listen again to my piece. Somehow it got cut off early when I loaded it into the folder, I guess.

Connie,

I like your clip alot. I've got a set of O'Briens (with a handful of different fipples) and I like them very much. I set them aside for a few weeks (or months) and then come back to them and remember how pleasant they sound. Glad to see you used one for this.

Anyway, your clip flows smoothly and the mix works well together.

Cheers.

Thanks, Keith! Funny how you do that with the O'Briens. I do the same thing. I use the E tube to play with the other guitarist in church, since E is a guitarist's key, but other than that they do a lot of shelf time--until I pull them out one day, and enjoy the sound. I've never really explored the C tube at all, but my Silkstone C has gone missing, and I was actually amazed at what the O'Brien did for the project.

Aaahhhh ... that's better! :D That's a beautiful piece, Connie.

Re: spoons ... when I was a kid, Mom taught us to play spoons, somewhat. She was pretty good at it herself. She never minded the noise too much when the spoons and piepan band struck up the chorus. :mrgreen:

I would LOVE to hear you play spoons! Maybe on a project coming up????

Yeah, we used to have some wonderful rhythm band with the pots and pans around here. Then I got a new set of pots for Christmas. Didn't think about saving the old ones for the kids.:cry: I kind of miss the fun. Maybe I ought to hit the yard sales.

I'm impressed, Jim. One of my favorite things about music is the the creative ways there are to make it. God created us with such a drive for music that every culture seems driven to pound, carve and shape things into instruments.

Too bad about that demonstration.

Thanks. This one is on an O'Brien Bb with a little bit of touch up with Audacity.

Played with spirit, Ron. What whistle did you use?

That was an Alba Q1. I tried several and I liked this one best for this tune. For some reason I had a hard time learning this one. That is why I am so late posting it. One of my friends is preparing an arrangement for the Choir to sing.

One of these days when I figure out how to mix sound files, I will post a couple with my hammered dulcimer and whistle and my mountain dulcimer and whistles.

I have really enjoyed listening to everyones songs they have sent in.

Kathy :)

I recorded 2 verses of Be Thou My Vision with my Eb Susato, because that's the whistle that loved me most during practice. Smile
