For some reason, I felt like this tune was just begging for a primitive old-school piano backing. ;)

For those of you working through the Music Theory book, here's the analysis:

Key: D Natural/Harmonic Minor
Time Signature: 4/4
Backing chords used: D minor, A major, maybe an occasional Dm7 or A7.

Intro: "That Silent Movie Villain Thing" - Piano.

Part 1: "Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho" - Form AABBA - Piano and Clarke Original C Whistle.

Bridge: "Come Ye Sinners Poor and Needy" - Piano and Susato Kildare Low F Whistle.

Part 2: "Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho" - Form ABA - Piano and Clarke Original C Whistle.

You guys all do such great work. Although I don't think this one was work. I think everybody is having fun with it. I am still working on the B part. I hope I can get it recorded before I leave on Thursday. I don't know how often I will get to post after that. It depends on whether my grandsons will let me use the computer.

:D :D :D

Muchas gracias, Judy! 8)

Sometimes I feel a little envious of great pianists and classical guitarists, but then I'm brought back down to earth when it occurs to me that all it takes to get most people's attention is a good boom-chuck or blues shuffle.

Once again, thanks. :mrgreen:

for some reason when I listened to Rin's version vaudeville came to mind. I could almost see someone in tophat and tuxedo tap dancing and singing this hehe.

Come to think of it, it did end up with kind of a Zoot Suit Riot vibe. ;)

Good job. This seemed to work well for you. It has a real sense of movement and catches the spirit of the tune well. And, to use a word already used about a million times with this tune, it's fun. Really nice sounding whistle.

In another thread BH mentions that to play this he read the words instead of the notes. What this has done is give his playing a very VERY singing qulaity to it. And this is a good thing. Very similar to how people tell you that when you want to play airs go listen to someone sing it first to hear some of the rise and fall of the melody line. This is what he has done here in essence and it has given a very nice quality to the track.

I wasn't quite sure what to do with the tune. I closed my eyes and just let the whistle play what it wanted.

Adrian, this is so-o-o what I'd do (if I were a little more proficient). Very clean, very fun--you've got soul.

Nice job -- really moves all the way through. What's the whistle?

Ren, I just heard your version. The piano intro was fantastic. I loved the whole piece.

Adrian, really nice. I wish I could play like that.

I played on my cocobola Greenwood in D. I made an acoustic guitar shuffle loop with my Washburn. All other stuff is either Finale generated or loops I have.

Wonderful, Connie! This is why God called you to be a music teacher.

I'm in awe of all these people that can make their clip sound like a whole band.

Well ... wow! :shock: :D

Played Blackhawk's ... very, very well done! :sunny2:
Played Adrian's ... just how did a Brit capture such an essential jazz air? Sounds like he spent a lot of time in New Orleans. :love:

Played Connie's ... would have worked very well as a cinema soundtrack. Did I hear tap dancing? 8)

It sounds suspiciously like an Overton low F. Regardless, it's beautiful, Adrian.
