First up is RenTin10

Quote:
No, not the same as "Jeremiah was a Bullfrog".

This clip is actually two versions of the tune cobbled together. The first half was played on an organ. I created the "swell" at the end by getting on the sustain and slowly increasing the volume until it was just short of clipping, then letting off the sustain.

The second half was played on a mountain dulcimer and synth "harp".

That is about as relaxing and "putting me in the mood for Christmas" as I have heard.

I don't have WHOA at the moment ... but after listening to these clips on the dulcimer ... I may develop a new disease .. the Dreaded Dulcimer Drool ... man ... those sure do sound nice. Can you get that kind of sound out of a not so expensive one???

Nice job

I know exactly what you mean, Jim W. The same 'big dog' is responsible for me dragging Mom's dulcimer out of the closet. I can tell you it's easy to get a nice sound ... it's not easy to sound as good as Jim E.

Love this one, too, Mr. RenTin10! =D>

Ohhhh but ... Ron ... think how would sound as you played it ... then listen again ... to Ken's clips ... imagine that you are the player ... and then imagine .. shipping me your Q1 .. since you have switched to the Dulcimer. :shock:

Well that might be a little too much to imagine .. but can't fault me for trying LOL!

Question: How come synth harps sound so much better than synth whistles?

I liked your clip Keith ... you sounded very happy when you were playing .. it is a good song .. if you are sad before you play it .. think you would be happy by the time you finished ... or your happy meter is broken. :D

Thanks, Jim. It does make one happy to play it, though if we take that to be the measurement, I guess this means there are only three of us on the board who are happy because nobody else has posted this. (Maybe we should be called the three wise-guys.) Please post everyone.

Best wishes.

I don't know Keith ... I didn't think we sounded all that bad .. but am not too worried about putting anything else up ... seems all interest has died out. Oh ... well .. have a dulcimer coming .... that will take up a lot of my time. Kathy tells me I can play it in 5 min. but I am old .. and willing to give it 10 mins .. or so!! :D

I am trying to get this one done. I fell behind when my computer went down and have yet to catch up. Right now though I am willing to give everyone the benefit of the doubt and call it the Holiday Busies...If after the first of the year interest does not pick up we will look at shutting down or doing something different. Again from a personal standpoint I am very very busy and just getting to pick up my whistle for 5 minutes or so a day is an accomplishment.

I figured this was the case with many. And real life concerns ought to take priority. Don't worry about pleasing Jim and me. After all, he's from Texas and I'm from Hawaii and both places leave one's view of the world out of kilter for life.

I am working on it. But there are presents to get for the GC and GGC. I wanted to play it on my new Alba F but I am not on that good of terms with it yet. I played it the other night on my CB flute and on my Olwell flute but it was not postable quality. I guess I could record it on a Feadog or Waltons or Generation or.......
