(edited to link to a key of D song)

Okay, here's a link to the new song.

http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g23/W ... an0001.jpg

Once the picture comes up, click on it and it should zoom in so it'll be readable. Then you can print it off.

I've sent Kitty an mp3 generated by Finale, so we can all hear it.

Have fun!

-Connie

Thanks Connie!

Is everyone OK with it being written in Bb? (You can play it in any key you like of course)

Here's the sample:

I don't want to upset Connie as she is one of my heros but I sent Kitty the tune in the key of C which is the easiest key for this on a D whistle. I also put it in 3/4 time which modern musical eyes are more used to reading.

Well, Adrian, hats off to you! I would never have thought to put key of C Rock of Ages on a D whistle, but--sure enough--it works.

Just in case anyone would like to play it in the key of D, I edited the link to make it go to a key of D song. Just in case anyone still wants to play it in Bb,
here's a link for that:

Ok kids... catching up on some links here.

A PDF in C from Adrian:
http://praisewhistlers.org/exchange/songfile/RockofAges-inC.pdf

Our first clip from Jim Wright, played on a Tommy tweaked Gen Eb:
http://praisewhistlers.org/exchange/songfile/Rockofages_JimWright.mp3

And another from Kristos who says:
"Ok, so this isn't the same tune. :?:
A friend of mine came up with an alternate tune for Rock of Ages. This is it, played on my Moeck Rottenburgh Soprano Recorder again. 8) I used Audacity for an interesting stereo echo effect. (I usually just save my clips as mono.) Hopefully I can get up another one with the chords- they add a nice background to the song."

Here is Keith's (khl) version, played on a Lon Dubh Blackwood D.

Jim: Once again, you blow me away by playing along to those sound effects. I enjoyed the rain. Made me want to go get a big, comfy blanket, a cup of hot cocoa, and listen again. And did I hear wind chimes? I felt I was sitting on an old-fashioned porch swing on a brisk fall day, listening to you play. Thanks for such a neat total experience. :thumbsup:


Keith: Such a nice job with the ornaments. I like the way some of those cuts sound like just a bit of a sob. With Kitty's loss this past weekend, and the death of a friend here, your music had a bit of healing in it. As Dana has said, we need an emoticon that smiles and cries at the same time.:thumbsup:

Let's see---so far, that's two thumbs up! :D

Didn't see that one hidden away in that post. Sorry, Kristos. I like your stereo pan, along with the reverb. That plus your nice recorder ornamentation gives this a cool primitive effect. I've never in my life heard that version of Rock of Ages. Very interesting. Very cool. I'd like to know more about the history of that music. Did you mean your friend actually write the music? Or is it as ancient as it sounds?

Okay, three thumbs up. Um...I only have two hands. :|

Ah, you spotted it. Thanks!
A fella I know said it made him think of an ancient Cathedral or something. His son, the friend I was referring to, did indeed write the tune. He plays piano really well. You ought to hear their family sing it. Beautiful!
Here's what he told me: He loved the words of Rock of Ages, but the melody just didn't strike him as to pleasant, so he up and came up with a substitute.

Here's a clip from Judy:
    I played the CB folk flute along with a Finale midi based on a guitar arrangement by Jim Nailon.

That is nice sounding Judy. I have wanted to hear someone play something I might play on A CB folk flute. I want one. :mrgreen:

Thanks, y'all! I find myself reaching for the folk flute more and more. It just has such a nice sound (even with my playing) -- and is a very easy flute to play.

My music is rather ... hmmm, straightforward (beats saying bland, I guess ;) ). We were raised in my family to play 'exactly' as written ... no extra notes. Mom dislikes the 'extras'. That is one reason I enjoy the creative talents around here so much. Can't imagine how you all come up with the arrangements you use, but I can't wait to hear your version, Connie ... and Kitty ... and shadoes ...

Kristos ... great! Can't get more original than that! You're using the recorder so often now -- it's beautiful. Are you studying music in college?

Keith, you always manage to put in such neat ornaments. I love it ... as usual.

Jim, you project so much emotion in your playing -- =D> . Neat reverb setting, too. That Eb sounds good ... but in the background, is it rain or clocks ticking?

Truth be told .. it was either the fan or AC or both .. and if you had sharp ears . clocks ticking and chiming.. but .. I was liking the idea that it sounded like rain Judy .... wish it had been!!!

Will have to wait until I get home to hear the clips .. no sound on these puters

Nope- more like Chemistry and Calculus! :shock:
I change between prioritized instruments from time to time- now the recorder, maybe then the burke, maybe next the ukranian whistle.


All these clips are cool!

Jim: It sounds so much like running water and wind chimes!
A relaxing clip. :)

Kieth: Yep, cool ornaments!

Judy: Cool flute! I like the whole clip, it's not bland, even if it's sorta 'predictable.'

Kris, thanks -- 'predictable' is a very good word choice ... and accurate! (Could apply to my life .....) :D

Chem & Calc -- fun classes. :roll: Good luck! I aced Calculus, did better with inorganic Chem than Organic, loved the labs ... but that was in the last millenium. :)
