Keith, nice, jaunty twist to S & T.

Yeah, my trying the harmony was a bit like an amateur choir that had potential but didn't quite get it right when they sang for an audience. #-o :oops: :)

I like the harmony line, too. 8)

Blackhawk, sweet, heartfelt, haunting.

Judy, don't overprocess that sweet sound!!!! Slow is fine when it sounds that good. Makes it last longer.


Sweet! I like that little pinch-harmonic on the high G in the first verse. Was that intentional? ;)

ConnieS wrote:
Ren, how did you get the muted sound on your melody line in the second verse? It sounds rather nice.


The first verse is a dulcimer. The second, a mandolin. :mrgreen:

I like the overall rhythmic quality of your (first) piece. Second song, tonna fun. :thumbsup:


Thanks! 8)

That was a treat for the ears. Thanks.

So many good recordings here.

Sounds good, Shadoes. You seemed to resolve you differences with the C's.

Me, too! I especially like the greasy slides in the second verse. 8)

I liked both of these .. a little different than what I am use to hearing or singing but very nice. I guess different areas sing songs differently or maybe they have different tunes.
Actually I just played it from memory, from how I heard it sung when I was a kid. I'm sure different congregations do sing it differently.

Any info on what whistles Keith & Blackhawk are playing?
It was my Humphrey B nat.

Quote:
Nifty twists to the song on both versions ... the lower harmony with Keith's, the more ornaments with BH's. Good job!
Thank you, Judy!

..... so .... while you are together, are you going to record a duet? 8)
Not this time, Judy, but we'll do it twice next time. :mrgreen:

Very plaintive, Adrian. Your playing brings this out well.

Once again, Adrian, you expressed it how I would have expressed it. :)

Have you ever seen the movie, "Trip to Bountiful?"

Author:  Adrian [ Mon Aug 20, 2007 1:06 am ]
Post subject: 

Thank you for your encouragment. A little goes a very long way in life.

Keith - Chieftain A

Connie - I have not seen this film. Do you recomend it?

You and Susan would probably both enjoy that movie. There's recorder in the sound track, and Softly and Tenderly is the opening theme.

Although if action flicks are your thing, you won't find much action there.

Oh, I forgot to mention, the Softly and Tenderly version in the movie has much the same plaintive quality of your version, Adrian, which is why I wondered if you had seen the movie. The first time I saw the movie the song had a profound spiritual impact on me.

Keith has a second version of this song for us:

"Softly and Tenderly" - khl


He says:

This is played on a Kerry Low Eb.

Keith, love the second version. The sound of that Low Eb is gorgeous, and the playing superb as usual. :)

Here is one from Ron

"Softly and Tenderly" - Ron

Softly and Tenderly followed by I Need Thee Every hour. I have been busy and got way behind. The whistle is an Alba Q1 D recorded with a Sampson Q1 USB mic using Cool Edit 96.

Ron, I love that Alba sound. Very traditional.
