This is the first time I have had time to sit down and listen to the clips .. and sure did like them. Really have enjoyed listening to what the rest of you are playing.

Have had the privilege of listening to Tommy and Micheal play and they need to start posting clips ... they both play very well.

:D Nice one, Blackhawk ... some neat ornamented notes. I'm curious, like Connie -- what whistle are you playing?

:) It's a Chieftain Bb. I love its sound, but I probably should have used a whistle with which I have spent more time. I couldn't get rid of that pop when I went from

xooooo to oxxooo

I can do that easily on my Syn C, but I really liked the way the Chieftain sounded (except for that pop).

Thanks, Judy. That's the Chieftain Bb I got recently from Preacher. I like it a lot.

AARRGH!!! That pop is my nemesis! Glad you've got it mastered on some whistles. I've got it mastered on NUTHIN'.

Here's Connie's clip:
    I've gone low-tech this time. Used only instruments I could play with my hands.

    Verse one is my prodigal Feadog. Doing backups are my acoustic guitar, Yamaha keyboard synth strings, and bass guitar, also played on my Yamaha keyboard.

    Verse two is the Greenwood in cocobolo, backed by an acoustic guitar and bottleneck slide guitar. Cool

    The tag is solo Greenwood. It's inspired by the verse in Isaiah that talks about waiting on the Lord and then mounting up with wings as eagles. So I pictured getting a hang glider, stepping off a cliff, and catching the updraft. Mr. Green

    Oh, and there's a bonus. When I was laying guitar track on the intro and first verse, I didn't realize I was singing along. See if you can hear the faint singing in the intro.

    This one was very cathartic for me. I hope the feeling shows.

And another from Ron:

The whistle is a white topped Mack/Oak D.

Sure is fun to listen to these clips .. Connie has a band and Ron is solo .... kitty will probably come in with a full orchestra! :D

It always amazes me to see how each of us come at a song from a different slant .....

Connie, I just love what you can do with what I think of as a very simple song. Wonderful!

Ron, I use your clips more than any others to help me know what the finished product should sound like. I need to hear just a simple whistle to help me get the basics of the song. I really enjoy your playing.

I haven't been able to make with the full orchestra thing yet. The software takes a little learning time and here lately I have been busy. I have been doing plumbing for the last few days replacing fixtures that have given up. When you buy a new place nowdays you can't expect things to last more than about 10 years. I did get the banjo out though and while in Cincy I played a little guitar. I think it is marvelous the way we all have different perspectives on the same tune. Sometimes I think I am influenced by my early Sunday School days. The piano player, we had no organ, played veeery slowly.

Keep them coming.

Here's a clip from Brasso: "Instruments used: Clarke Original D whistle, mountain dulcimer."

Looks like it's 3 :thumbsup:

************

Connie ... I love the blues sound -- would never have thought of that! But I don't think I'd exactly say this is "low-tech" ... more "high-talent".

*************

Ron ... you don't need the full orchestra. The simple sound of the whistle is wonderful.

*************

Brasso ... love the sound of the mountain dulcimer with the whistle! This may be my favorite clip yet.

Speaking of Dulcimer, where is Kathy? A few hammered dulcimer tunes would be nice.

That was my daughter Alissa at the end, coming in to tell me she had to go potty. :mrgreen:

It's great to see you posting clips again, Ron! :D

Very nice, some very cool ornaments in this ... but I was sort of hoping you add in the harmonica again sometime. I tried to add harmonica on "Sweet Hour of Prayer", but the results were too ugly to share ... :( :?

Just a 'bump' on the tune to keep it one the first page. Any other takers for this one?
