Wow who would have thought when this idea came to me we would make it to 19 songs. Just over one year ago now since TPE started. This time we slow it down a bit with a song that at least in the Baptist church is traditionally used as an inviation hymn.

Oh, goody! This past weekend, I emptied out the coin jar and bought a new toy (Fender A-body mandolin). Now I have something to try it out on. :mrgreen:

Yikes! That's way too easy to do. I've come close before myself.

Oh, well. All's well...

BTW, hi, everybody, from South Carolina. :wave:

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.

Post subject: 

Any info on what whistles Keith & Blackhawk are playing?

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

..... so .... while you are together, are you going to record a duet? 8)

Khl says - This is played only one time trough with an Abell Eb and a Reyburn Low Eb for harmony at the refrain.

No info on Blackhawk's

Post subject: 

Like both of these and hearing the dulcimer on these makes me wonder how they would sound up tempo a bit even though this is tradtionally a slower song.

For myself I am on the frustrated side today. For the last hour I have been recording take after take and getting nothing I like. Even my two beloved whistles the Obrien and Reyburn are not doing it for me today. They just sound thin on every take. Hate it when that happens.

May re-work mine to try it faster if the time becomes available. Did try tweaking it with Audacity to a faster tempo, but it just sounded 'muddier'. I seem to lose sound quality the more I tweak with Audacity. Is that normal?

Ren, I sure like your mix of dulcimer and mandolin! :D

Author:  khl [ Sun Aug 05, 2007 5:59 pm ]
Post subject: 

Ren and Judy Nice job. Those are sweet instruments. Can't say I'll buy something with strings soon, but someday. And I've got to get me a Casey Burns Folk flute also (sooner than the strings, but still not for awhile).

I'm guessing that Blackhawk used his Humphrey Bnat. I played this yesterday and it's a fine whistle -- more on this later.

Shadoes, sorry too hear about the frustration in trying for a long time to get something right and it not working. My guess is (from my WHOLE YEAR'S experience recording ;) ) that if you let it sit for a bit, go do something else, and then come back to it (maybe even tomorrow) that it will work. Or you could be like me and simply post what you have.

Then again, I wish I'd worked on mine more -- the harmony isn't completely to my liking (sounds more like a circus carnival at times, among other things) and I play it just a bit too fast. But I didn't have the wherewithal (as far as patience and time) to keep working with it, so I sent it on.

Keith, nice, jaunty twist to S & T.

Blackhawk, sweet, heartfelt, haunting.

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

Ren, how did you get the muted sound on your melody line in the second verse? It sounds rather nice. I like the overall rhythmic quality of your (first) piece. Second song, tonna fun. :thumbsup:
