Post subject:  Song 13 - O The Deep Deep Love Of Jesus

Our next song is "O The Deep Deep Love of Jesus."

Since I don't have Finale on my new/used laptop yet, I'll give you this link to the song on Markbell's webpage:

To hear the tune, here's a link to the midi:

http://www.geocities.com/whistleandsque ... fJesus.mid

This is a very expressive tune. It can be done slowly with great feeling, or, as Mark puts it, speed it up and make it a "sea-shanty." Or, of course, do your own thing with it.

Have fun!

What he wagged. The hymn looks like a good one.

I played this one on a Water Weasel A.

Hey, Keith, I like it! I like the way you go from fast pirate song to slow, sad.

One highlight--when you're doing the first, fast part, you go from the B (high) part back to the A (low) part, and you slide down into it. Nice.

I like the A Water Weasel. That's a great-sounding whistle.

I also like the 'copter in the background. :D

It's a nice touch, isn't it. 8) The military is fairly ubiquitous here and you'll have helicopters (usually in teams) fly over now and then. When I heard them as I was playing, I was annoyed. I thought of re-recording, but figured good enough was good enough and I didn't have time to spend beyond that. Fortunately the microphone setup I have doesn't pick up distant sound as loudly as it actually is. (I've got a portable recorder also that would have made the copter much more obvious.)

Thanks for your comments. I'm glad to have the Water Weasel.

You actually took me back to visiting my grandma and grandpa's as a child. They lived in south Georgia, just a stone's throw from Fort Stewart. :roll:

Cool, Keith!

I am a little bit disappointed that a combination of my laptop's lousy speakers and Mom's oxygen machine didn't allowed me to hear the helicopter 'track' ..... ;)

:D

Ren-Tin-10 sends us the next version:

He says:

Quote:
This track illustrates three common techniques for the mountain dulcimer. The first part is drone/melody, the second part is strummed chord/melody, and the third part is fingerpicked chord/melody.

Great, Ren! =D>

I couldn't quite figure out a fingerpick style for this. Thanks!

Yes, indeed. Nicely done.

Ren, nice job!! I really enjoyed the arrangements you played. Appalachian slides were a nice touch, too. :thumbsup:

Two very nice recordings there!
Cool dulcimer playing. :)

I really like that tune. I've played it a lot. But I don't think I've recorded it yet. But two more final exams, and I'll be off of college until fall. 8) I'll probably record it soon. Maybe today...

Good news! JudyK's out from under that pile of tax work. She submits TWO versions of the latest hymn.

The first:

http://praisewhistlers.org/exchange/son ... _judyk.mp3

And here's what she says about the first:

Quote:
First one is my standard Finale midi with folk flute accompaniment. Didn't take time to dress it up much -- no reverb, no editing on the flute track, except (maybe) amplifying it a bit.





The second:

http://praisewhistlers.org/exchange/son ... _judyk.mp3

And her comments on the harp version:

Quote:
Second version is a fumble-fingered attempt on the new harp. This one had a lot of dead space cut out! I don't think I quite got all of the wrong notes ... er ... "improv" notes cut off. Hope everyone bears with me and the new playpretty. :D

Post subject: 

Good going, Judy! =D>

IMO, a tune should be strong enough to stand on its own without having to be dressed up much. This is one of those tunes. The MIDI Mellotron on the first one was a nice touch, though.

And where were the wrong notes on the second one? I couldn't find any. ;)

Judy, your harp has a really pretty sound. :D I like it VERY much. Don't worry about newbie-ism. You sound like you're definitely on the right track, and you're making some nice music come out of it already.

The Finale/Folk Flute version is beautiful, as always. You really do have a knack for bringing the best out of Finale, as well as your flute.

On the Finale copy, if there's anything at all I would suggest, it would be to sometimes let your track completely drop the melody so the folk flute can carry the melody alone. That would really showcase the sound of that CB flute!

However, I completely understand time constraints. Overall, both versions are very nice.

Nice going. I like the folk flute sound and the way your take on the song in this clip works well for me. Very pleasant.

Post subject: 

Thank you all very much.

In listening to these clips, and remembering my first clip of "Amazing Grace" (do we have a 'shuddering' smiley?), it has amazed me as to just what I've learned in recording, editing, playing, etc ... all because of The Praise Exchange. Shucks, without TPE and Ren's Christmas MD clips, I'd never even considered getting our MD out of the case and missed a whole new world of fun. So, to all the brains behind TPE - Kitty, Ed, Connie -- and all the contributors (the rest of us, I guess) -- Thanks for the help, the education, the fun, and all the wonderful music you've shared!

:thumbsup:

PS -- Connie, I'm never gonna be able to work Finale like you do ..... =D>

yeesh I am falling sooo behind in everything. Life keeps getting in the way. Nicely done all. Seems listening is all I have time to do lately.

Post subject: 

I'm falling behind too, Shadoes. And with school two weeks from being out, and a school CD to produce, it'll be after then before..........

Oh, well. I'd like to realease a few of the students' tracks, though. They've done some TPE hymns.

Meantime, you guys are doing a great job with these tracks. I can't wait to see what comes to us next. :D
