Here are two more

first Ron Kiley's

I have just uploaded comethou_ronkiley to the ftp site. It is played on my old trusty Feadog with no reverb or any other processing.

I made up the accompaniment track last weekend. I was way too burned out at the time to arrange it myself, so I used a really nice one by Sally DeFord. The harp and most of the piano come from her arrangement. Then the oboe, cello, violin and French horn are all my arrangement, built on her chords. AND I found this really cool button that would syncopate the whole song and give it this swingy feel. Couldn't pass that one up. ;)

It was a very relaxing project.

Ron! Nice. I like especially what you did with the part where the song has two eighth (quick) notes in a row. I struggled to get those to fit in with the song. You handled it nicely by making them into one one-beat note. It sounds good.

Ron (Eternalbro) .. you always put such neat ornaments in your playing. I can never get them to fit so nicely. I like the sound of the Whistle Smith whistle.

Connie, that is such a pretty piece! Smooth, soothing ... but with a cool twist in the tune variations.

Ron, will you give lessons on how to get that sound from a Feadog? My Feadog D has way more rasp to it. Yours is beautiful!

That is a beautiful number Connie. I like the variations on the basic hymn.

Judy your Feadog probably doesn't sound as bad as you think it does. It sounds different to listeners than it does to you. The only secret to playing a Feadog is breath control. It takes much less air than most people think. You don't blow into a Feadog you just breath gently into it. A Feadog is VERY sensitive to breath variations. I have another Feadog, a Feadog Pro, that is nicer sounding but it takes even more breath control. That is why I haven't recorded with it yet.

Thanks, Judy and Ron. The variations were fun to play with.

Blackhawk has played a rendition of Come Thou Fount on his olive wood whistle made by Tommy. Kitty posted it in the fellowship forum, and I thought it would be good to have it linked here as well.

Here's Come Thou Fount, played by an 11 year old girl, a student of mine. She's a folk music fan. She has a very nice dulcimer, for which she's taking lessons, on top of pennywhistle.

Anyhow, SORRY for the quality--recording in a concrete room with other students trying to be quiet is less than ideal. :oops:

She seems to have a real sense of musicality. Fun to listen to.

She has a bright future ahead of her. What kind of whistle do you have the kids play, Connie? Or do they each just get different kinds, according to what their parents want to buy them?

Megs for all. If their parents want to buy something special, I recommend Mellow Dogs, a more expensive sound with a less expensive price tag. But now Mellow Dogs are to be discontinued in favor of a machined product, so I can't recommend them anymore until I know more about the new product.
