Hey, where's the Irish accent? :joker:

I am still trying to find time to record this one with the whistle. May have to post an older recording I did as a medleyt of this and amazing grace heh. And here I thought after the wedding life might slow down a bit.

Connie, you're such a sweetheart!! Thank you! I'll get to work learning to sing it now. Do I need to sing all parts of the harmony? And then which do I play? :mrgreen:

Thanks from the gang. :oops:

Blackhawk, :roll: !!!! Why don't you get one of those two-whistles taped contraptions and try to do it all!? :laughing:


Now I'm going to have to change my username! Anyone hearing this stuff is going to think I'm (we're) the muliple-personalitied "Connies."

Just don't go calling yourself Legion. That would give me the creeps. :shock:

All this tongue in cheek stuff aside, Connie, thanks truly for throwing yourself on a grenade here for me. :) It will help me learn.

yay! finally. I did this this afternoon. Nothing special just four verses. Starting with one whistle..then adding up to three. Played with my O'brien Maple and the Reyburn Low D. And of course added my now favorite Digeridoo track heheh. The first whistle is doubled and panned full left and right. The remaining whistles were left in the center.

Transcribed some comments from Josh yesterday:

“Thanks, everybody, for all the things you said about my rendition of “Be Thou My Vision. It means more to me than you can imagine. I’m definitely going to be posting more stuff in the future. This has motivated me to get back into whistle. I’d kind of let myself go a little bit because of school. So maybe I’ll have to overcome my tiredness at the end of the day and crack ‘em out (the whistles.)

It’ll also help that I got my favorite whistles back from Australia, the Syns. So I’m going to post Amazing Grace “blues style” on the Syn (B)

So thank you again, and I wish I was posting this a little bit more personally. There were so many great posts that I’m kind of at a loss to

respond to everything, so I’d just like to give a thanks to everybody for all the things they said. Hope to keep in contact to you pretty regularly. Talk to you later.”


He did have a response to Blackhawk's comment: “That was really moving to me that your wife was in tears, Blackhawk. That meant a lot to me because I’ve never had that happen to me before with whistling. It really motivated me to practice and get better. And you can bet on hearing some more tunes from me pretty quick here. I plan on posting Amazing Grace Blues style on a Syn B. So keep an eye out and it should be coming up here pretty quick.”

And he got to hear a few of the other renditions.


Regarding Judy's version:
Josh: “That’s beautiful.”
Connie: “Isn’t that something?”
Josh: “Yeah!”


khl:
“Man, Keith, I really like that part where you go (he slid into ‘Naught Be All Else). I’m going to have to incorporate that into my rendition of it.”



Kristos: “I think that slur he throws in at the end makes it really have a neat sound.”


Blackhawk, he heard your rendition just as it was time to leave, so he didn’t have time to record a comment, but he liked the sound of the Syn and liked the way you handled the tone of the whistle. He liked the ornaments. Thinks he wants to get a Syn C tube, now.


Jim, he heard your version and also did not record a comment, but he liked it. He did ask if you could back off just a bit on the reverb next time, so he can hear it better.

That's about it.

Shadoes!! That's a nice "Be Thou My Vision." I always like the didgeroo when you put it in there.

Here is ConnieS
Quote:
All the whistle work is done with an O'Brien copper C.

Judy inspired me to go back and revisit Finale as a source of wild and exotic instruments, and found that the harp and cello are very realistic. So the accompaniment track is built on harp and solo cello, with solo violin, cello strings and violin strings.

=D> \:D/ :thumbsup:

If I served as any inspiration for your piece, Connie .... I did good! :mrgreen:

NICE! One thing, it does cut off kinda abruptly ..... is it supposed to?

BTW, nice picture of Josh. He looks so intent on what he's playing. :D

... but who plays the spoons?

Josh and I have tried to work together, but I can't keep time. :?

We actually have done Be Thou My Vision as a duet in church. He played melody on my Susato A and I played high harmony on my Clarke original (Connie tweaked).

Yeah, I was hoping someone might have some suggestions on the whole last verse. I wasn't sure the whistle/background ratio was right. Every time I tried to raise the whistles the three of them overmodulated on the high note and sounded horrendous.

Do you think the harp ended too abruptly? I could probably do something about that.

Hmm. Mah song got cut off. It wasn't supposed to end THAT abruptly!! I'll post it again, see if we can't get more of it on there this time.

Sorry, Connie, I just noticed this for the first time this morning. I can't wait to convey Josh's message to Donna. And thanks for the pic. Donna asked me if we could get the picture because she feels such a kinship with him (I can't explain it...she sometimes marches to the beat of a different drummer) that she wants to print out the pic and post it on our fridge. Just tell Josh that he has 2 fans in CA now. We can't wait to hear more from him.
