I'm giving this song a bump to put it back on the first page so that some might be encouraged to play and record it. I'm thinking of doing another version sometime soon.
Great idea, Keith. I did a new version of it this morning on my new Humphrey B and uploaded it just now. I know it's not perfect, but it's better than I did last year and it's probably as good as I'm going to get at this stage of my learning.

I listened to your clip four times not just to hear it but to enjoy it. It is very nice. I think you are on a steep learning curve and are working very hard. It will be interesting to hear you play after you have spent time playing with Keith.

I REALLY like that whistle. The ornaments 'pop' very nicely and it has a slightly edgy sound that I like. I'm guessing that it has a very low back pressure? Why did you choose the B over the Bb? When will we hear the other Humphrey?

Yes, very low back pressure. That's what I like in a whistle. As to the B over Bb, there were two reasons. First, I wanted a B for one of Robin Mark's songs that we sing in my church (Shout to the North). Second, I already have two perfect Bb whistles, Burke and Chieftain, so I got embarrassed at my riches and went with a slightly different key. However...after falling in love with this whistle, I got an intense case of WhOA and emailed Gary asking how long his wait is now, and ordered a Bb. So now I'll have three perfect Bb whistles. :roll: In any case, if anyone's interested, his waiting list has been pared down significantly and I should have my new Bb in 2 weeks. :shock:

After the new wears off this B, I'll record something on the low G. It's just as good as the B, beleive me.

And thank you for the kind words, Adrian. It means a lot.

That's really great, Blackhawk! Did you add the touch of reverb? Sounds cool, if added or natural.

:thumbsup:

Yes, I noticed it again. I guessed it was natural as it sounds like our front room. If you added it you will have to give us the secret formula as it is very nice and not OTT.

Thanks, Judy, yes, if the tune I'm recording is less than 60 seconds long, I use the "sound recorder" feature on my Windows XP, then I click on "add echo." I just like the way it sounds that way. Then I open up Audacity and import it to do the other stuff, but it keeps that echo effect from the sound recorder. The only problem is, the sound recorder won't go past the one minute mark.

Adrian, what does OTT mean?

OTT means 'over the top' i.e. too much. OTT reverb would sound like an Overton played in a huge cavern. Yours was subtle and perfect IMO.

Ah, now I get it. Thanks, Adrian.
