I've gotten a little ahead on transcribing hymns.

In the few weeks....

A song with great rhythm, very spiritual. This has a military theme, although it does describe some very innovative military tactics.

A softer, more tender song is on the way, as well.

Or is that sneaky preview? Got it, I think. (May even unbox a microphone and try to figure out the recording thing.)

Cool, Connie, can't wait!

I'm working on one of the older ones that all the rest of you did but I never did. It's taking me a while. For some reason I'm finding it awkward to learn, but I know it sounds great when done right. Then I'll work to catch up on more recent tunes.

What Blackhawk said. And don't forget that in doing this you'll be on the list from which someone will be chosen to receive a free whistle.

Connie

What kind of hint is that? Most of the tunes chosen are unknown to us across the pond.

Ooh, ooh, I'm guessing "Softly and Tenderly, Jesus is Calling." But Adrian is right that these hints could, like good hints should, point to about a couple hundred tunes. Well done. 8)

Very good, Keith. =D>

Regarding the militarily themed tune, try again, Blackhawk. Another battle, another century, another millennium.

Adrian, if you don't know this tune, you'll probably enjoy it anyway, since it's modal.

I am with you on this Keith .... the "softer" and the "tender" .. could have been thrown in to confuse us but don't think Connie is that devious .. although .. she is a teacher!!!! :roll: :D

One more hint, then the military song goes up Wednesday.

To reiterate:
A song with great rhythm, very spiritual. This has a military theme, although it does describe some very innovative military tactics.

The new hint:
The tune and lyrics came from a style that later blended with other styles to eventually produce jazz, blues, and rock and roll. The style had its influence on many other types of music too.

While this style first fully blossomed in the U.S., it was WELL received when it was introduced in Europe. In fact, it's had an influence on musical styles around the world.

Let's see. . . a new style that had an influence on jazz, blues, rock and roll? I know: Bell-bottomed jeans! We are going to play "Harvey beat the devil with his new Levi's on."

So I'm stumped, and, to quote one highly-esteemed moderator:

A new style? No, I didn't say new style. I said new hint. It's an old style by American standards. Not as old as Celtic...older than rockabilly. There! You squeezed another hint out of me.

But is this a 'military' song? What about "Joshua fit the battle"?

(If it isn't this, could we at least name the bunny Joshua? Harvey's already taken.)

Keith, Keith, Keith...you win. I have no prize, unfortunately. I guess you win exclusive rights to use that smug Mr. Green indiscriminately, all you want.

And now you guys can get an early start.
