Nice job guys...

BH: Very well done - you're right about the reverb ... nice touch, and Tommy's whistle sounds great.

khl: cool sound on the whistle; just my opinion, I like the second pass the best. It feels more relaxed to me.

RTT: Whole different take on the song! A HAPPY wayfaring stranger, if you will. Very nice - it would never have occurred to me to play that song in a major key. Very nicely done.

Sorry it took so long to get around to posting.

Now that my new internet service is smoothing out, I'm starting to listen to all the projects. Lots of great art here.

jrc, your version is so nice to listen to. Very well-done. I think your voice is great for that song.

Judy, your dulcimer arrangements are wonderful! I love the chord choices in them. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing all three.

Keith and Darvis, I'm having massive problems downloading, so I haven't listened to either of your projects yet. I will, though.

Ren, I was able to listen to a bit of the opening of yours. What I heard sounds great. Big teaser for when I get the 'net situation fixed.

Still ironing out some problems with the internet. I can upload or download small files, but a song is still out of reach.

Connie, that is so cool! Sounds like you had a lot of fun dreaming up all the "extras".

Thanks, Judy. This one took LOTS of time because I had to learn how different bluegrass instruments act. I knew how to play bluegrass guitar, but not the mando or banjo. I downloaded a few bluegrass midis, loaded them into Finale and looked at the notes. I consider it part of my teacher summer training. ;)

Yay! Well done, and worth the wait.

I really like the intro - you could build another version just around that. Way cool!

Thanks! You know, a friend sent me an excerpt from a book on native Scottish music. The intro I wrote based on ancient Scottish chant.

Very well played, Aaron! While I know that you play many instruments, you really shine on the ocarina - and I know that each ocarina is different to play. Thank you for sharing your gift!
