Ren, you gave the normally primitive, happy-go-lucky dulcimer an almost formal sound. Sounds neat.

Beautiful, Ren! Great job!

Here's Blackhawk's "Out Of the Depths."

His comments:

Quote:
Adrian put the idea forward for me to try it as a slow air, so that's how I approached it. Or at least that's what I had in mind. And it's on my Humphrey Bnat....Adrian also suggested I not pay too close attention to the timing as written, as in Irish slow airs.

I very much like how you played this piece. The ornamentation is nice and your interpretation was moving. Very well done.

Your Humphrey whistle came up trumps again.

Here's another take on Out of the Depths:

I used my Cheiftain Low D and s90 for a pad.

Really nice, jrc.

Post subject: 

nice. is the s90 a keyboard? or a softsynth? sounds like a string patch of some sort?

Author:  Judy K [ Sat Sep 08, 2007 6:51 am ]
Post subject: 

Three very nice versions of this song, all distinctively different and well played.

=D> =D> =D>


..... but .... I can't say I care much for the tune. My mind just has a hard time wrapping itself up in or around this melody. :?

Post subject: 

Thanks guys-

Shadoes - its' a keyboard. I don't do the computer recording thing. I have a couple of outboard modules and controllers, and I like real buttons and wires. But that's just my preference - I can appreciate the soft synths as well.

Judy - funny you said what you did about the tune; this is the first one in a while that has really grabbed me. I could almost hear the Gregorian kind of feel before I started. Definitely had a clear idea of what I wanted before recording.

thanks again-

Blackhawk:

I like it as an air. Well done. I do like that Humphrey.


jrc:

Very cool. I like the chord voicings you chose for the song. Ethereal.

Quote:
I play this on my Abell D (Delrin). (This was, in some ways, a challenging tune. A bit hard to know what to do with, though I've tried to capture some of the spirit of it.)

Author:  Adrian [ Tue Sep 11, 2007 1:05 pm ]
Post subject: 

Keith - I don't think you have to DO much if you are playing an Abell. I agree it is hard to know what to do with this tune but then some tunes are best left unaltered. Very nice version. I'd love to hear it on a lower Abell as well.

Jim - Superb as ever. You are a professional and it shows.

Darvis - I love your recording. As Susan said, it is very moving. The Humphrey is beautiful and your playing is good.

thanks, mate.


If you were in the South (southern U.S., that is) you might get a "thanks, bubba".

If I were a kind southern lass, you'd get a 'thanks, boo!"

In any case - thanks for your kind words. As I've said before, praise from this group is special.

Boo? Must be Virginian. In the deep south we said, "Whah, thank ya, Sugah." I moved to Tennessee where they just say, "Thank yew."

"Hey, Boo!" is a quote from To Kill a Mockingbird, my favorite book outside the Bible.

Keith, I enjoyed your piece very much. The slurs really accent that particular tune nicely.

I have a deepened respect for all of you now that I finally picked up my whistle and spent some serious time with this tune. It probably needs to be adapted rhythmically or something. :?

"Boo", in my experience is a New Orleans thing. A lady I deal with there occasionally always ends the call that way - 'thanks, Boo!"

VA has varying speech patterns across the state, from the mountains to the shore. In Richmond, however, 'river' becomes 'riva'. The top of a house has a 'ruf', and about becomes 'aboot' :mrgreen: .
