Once again, in this case, bare-bones is a good thing. 8)

Awesome, Mark! :mrgreen:

Keith,
O'Riordan aluminum? Never heard one before. It's beautiful. And you bring out its tone nicely. I like the playfulness of the 2nd verse. Slide at the end was NICE!!

Mark,
I always like your style. I wasn't sure this was a tinwhistle purist's tune, but you took it and made it into one. Very, very pleasing to the ear. It reminds me of what drew me to tinwhistle in the first place.

Good stuff, so far!!!!

Mark, thanks for posting. The Chieftain Low D was a nice choice and makes the tune rich.

It would be interesting, by the way, for someone to play this on a Kerry Song-Bird Low D and compare the differences. Any takers? (Hint hint, Alespa or someone who's got one.)

My tries.

This one is how I thought it ought to sound.

http://praisewhistlers.org/exchange/son ... onnies.mp3

Burke DAN with some Finale voices.



This one is what happened when I sat down with a guitar to worship God with the song.

http://praisewhistlers.org/exchange/son ... onnies.mp3

Washburn guitar and Mellow Dog.



The first one I went for a polished sound, but I enjoyed the rough feel of the second one, so I couldn't decide.
:oops:

Oh Connie...... definitely number 2 for me! :D

There is an undefinable "something" in it. Kind of like when your student (Josh?) played Be Thou My Vision for us.

Connie,

I like both. The first is more regal--I could imagine hearing it in a nice Anglican Church, for example, as a kind of processional. The second is more homey, for lack of a better way to describe it. Each has a good place.

Number 2 by a long shot for me!

BTW the Mellow D sounds great.

Thanks, guys. I had a gut feeling about the second one. Although I like the pageantry, and enjoyed putting the first one together. I agree, Keith, in church I've always heard the hymn done in the style of the first--with lots of organ, "pomp and circumstance."

Adrian, I have whistles that I enjoy very much, but that Mellow Dog is my "never sell, nohow, no way" whistle.

Adrian, it's not exactly a Mellow D. It's a Freeman-tweaked Mellow Dog. He takes a Mellow D tonebody and put a Feadog C head on it, tweaks the headpiece a bit, and--a Frankenstein is born!! the Mellow Dog.

If I lost all my whistles the Mellow D would be the first thing I replaced.

I think the best part is the second verse of the second one. You seem to really just relax and play what comes and the bends sound really nice. the first verse seems..well tentative for lack of a better word but it seems to just flow out on the second verse. Just one dude's opinion :)

Yeah, you're probably right about the first verse. The chord voices on the guitar are new to me, which probably drove the whistle into tentativeness as well. Given another couple of weeks, I could probably get a better "take."

Another one from Keith (khl)!

http://praisewhistlers.org/exchange/son ... d_khl2.mp3

And here's what he says:

Quote:
I've left another clip of Praise to the Lord. This one is played twice through. The first time is just whistle. The second time I added some reverb. Both times are played with little ornamentation on my fairly new Copeland A that is fast becoming one of my favorites.

Very nice Kieth. I like the Copeland A. What are the breath requirements like.

Connie, I missed this. I realised that you were referring to a Mellow Dog. I used to have one but Scarlet has it now. I prefer them with the Walton mouthpiece personally. Great whistle though.

Here's Ronkiley:

http://praisewhistlers.org/exchange/son ... nkiley.mp3

And this is what he says:

Quote:
This was one take unedited (no time). The whistle is an Obrien Blackwood Rover three piece D whistle. The whistle was here on tour and I wanted to use this one before I send it out. It is a nice whistle.

The Obrien Rover is a really nice whistle. It is 3 piece and fits into its soft pouch that easily fits into a shirt pocket. It is well balnced in both octaves. If I was in the mood to buy a whistle in this price range this is the one I would buy. I hated to see it go.

I like that nice, woody sound--and yet it's pretty bright for a wood whistle. Good choice for that hymn.
