Here's one from Kristos:

He says:

Quote:
I took the hymn tune and changed the timing and added a bunch of stuff to it. The sole instrument is a Dixon Two Piece Black Polymer Low D (that Carolyn sold to me some time back). It's a very soothing instrument to just play. I removed much of the noise with audacity- of late this computer has been giving me recording trouble. I ought to buy a sound card. But I can be content how it is. I didn't bother to try to fix the pops and skips. But I can enjoy it with all the snap, crackle, and pop, as I hope you do. Razz

My cheap Yamaha has three finger accompaniment. :P You can use one finger for all the major chords though. But almost all the accompaniments sound bad.

Ren-Tin-10 leaps out of the starting gate with our first arrangement. Here it is:

(In case you're wondering, the lovely piano backing is being done with auto-accompany on and one-fingered chords.) Wink


Sounds great!

The other tune here is one I've always heard to the Hymn "Come We that Love the Lord" with text by Isaac Watts: http://www.hymnsite.com/lyrics/umh732.sht

Thanks for all those who've posted so far. Nice renditions. jrc's is especially smooth.

Good job Kristos. That is a very nice whistle and I like your arrangement.

Wow - thanks brother.

When I first got the Kerry I'd have sold it cheap - we're making friends now though, little by little.

Chieftans/Kerrys I think all have a getting to know you period. When I got my Kerry low D I got frustrated with it soon after. Then one day I decided to sit down with it for an extended period of time. I think I must have played for like 6ish hours all told that day and then for a couple hours over the next few days. After about a week of that it suddenly started to click.

Oh and JRC I must say I have one problem with your version. Its to short :)

JRC,
It was a real treat to listen to your playing. A beautiful meditative piece. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Comments:

Ren-Tin, your song is fun to listen to, and a good demonstration of how to use technology to make music do what you want it to do. Hope you keep experimenting like that.



Shadoes...I hope you get your arrangement worked out. It could be a really good one!


Kristos...a very enjoyable piece! You are incredibly creative with your use of ornaments. I've always noticed that. I very much like the alternate timing you threw in. And minor keying was a nice touch! Great arranging of the melody.


jrc....your arrangements are always pretty close to professional quality, and this is no exception. I'm glad you're making friends with that Kerry. When you draw the first note from it, it sounds almost vocal.


Great workmanship here so far!!!!!!!!

I tried to make it longer but it wouldn't cooperate - the original plan was to come back with the traditional chord changes, but it sounded 'stuck on', or forced. If it wants to be a short song, a short song it is.

Susan and Connie:

Thanks very much. Kind words mean a lot from people you respect.

I play this on a Susato D VSB -- once through on the regular tune, then to the alternate tune, then back to the standard.

Keith: You swiped my idea! Those two tunes absolutely sound great together. I'm still going to do that, I think.

I really like the way you put them together, and you added some VERY interesting timing things in the last verse that I liked very much.

Very good stuff!!

Well, whether it's a joke or not, you are a very talented player. ;)


Very nice clips, jrc and Keith. It'd be interesting to sing with Keith's version. I outta try that!
