I posted a version of this on the EZFolk site below. I think it may be on the exchange too. I used a Cheiftain Low D, Syn D and my s90 for piano.

Blessings,

jrc

Hey jrc, that's pretty sweet! I like your arrangements.

The only thing - and this may just be my ears this morning (did I mention to you guys I had vertigo on Wednesday?) - it sounds to me like the whistles are not in tune with the keyboard. :?:

I don't know, maybe I'm hearing something else and just don't know how to say it.

But otherwise, excellent mood and arrangement!

Kitty

I don't think they are either. I was in the attic - literally, thats' where my 'stuff' is. It was a bit cold and I couldn't get them in the same temp at the the same time. RATS! :oops:

JRC's tune can be found here:

Jim, maybe you could tell us a little about the whistles you were using.



Edited to reflect second version of Jim's song.

This is really beautiful.

Jim, your low whistle came in tune as you played.

Did you have several piano clips that you pasted together? Because it seemed that some was brighter than others. The brightest of the piano work seemed more in tune with the low whistle.

The high whistle seemed flat all the way through.

It's still a beautiful arrangement!!

No.

Lingering effects of flu maybe?

Take care.

I used a Cheiftain Low D and a Syn High D.

I was just thinking - traditionally, European 'A' was 442hz and US was 440hz-
could that be part of intonation issue? I have a 1927 Buescher alto sax that is stamped "Low Key' indicating it was tuned at 440 rather that the European A. Any thoughts?

I may retune the Yamaha and see how that sits with the whistles. I know my keyboard is at 440hz now. I don't even know if it will change to 442- I never tried. Hmmm ...

Yes, but they are pushed all the way in and still sound flat to me.

I must say it sounds nice to me. I am learning Irish Washerwoman on violin and then whistle. I then am going to attempt to put it all together with guitar as my rhythm. I will let you all know how it turns out.

Jim, you are a really good musician and I have set up an account with ezfolk for my recordings when I get around to being good enough to actually record them:) Keep up the good work brother:):):)

You've had mildly chilly weather lately. Wait until May or June and try again! :mrgreen:

thanks Connie - I'm not real happy with it. I wanted to use it for an offering song at church, but I think I got some work to do with it first. I'm going to try the Clarke D and see what that sounds like and maybe play with the tuning on the Cheiftain, too.

And for the record - no pun intended- there are no punches. The piano was recorded in one shot, but the keybed is really worn. I used it at church for 3 years and it's beat up. They got me a new S90ES :thumbsup: :laughing: !
That's a really sewweeeeettt unit, there!

p.s. - Hope you're feeling better!

I played with the tuning last night on the Cheiftain and recorded the high part with a Clarke - everything sounded much more in tune and actually the 'chiff' of the two blended well, so I'm going to give that a whack when I get a chance. I'll post the 2nd take for comparison when I get'er done. ;)

Peace
