Jim, I don't see why there would be a problem with posting the hi fi and lo fi streams. That's a great way for us to hear it right away.


Cool - I just didn't want to abuse a resource :D

Connie - thanks for listening. I'm considering remixing it; the key pad seemed louder in the reference monitors ... we shall see .

Adrian - thanks brother -that's a Cheiftain ... I think it's an NR model but I really have no clue which is which.

Sorry for any confusion I caused by jumping the gun and posting a different version before someone posted the "regular" version. :oops: I just realized my amazon.com link didn't come through in Connie's post, so here it is again if you want to listen to a sample clip of the song I was copying.


Hey, Shan -- I like your version and the fact that it is different! That's one of the "foundation stones" of The Praise Exchange -- you play your version of the song your way. If you hadn't played this version I would not have known it existed. That's cool. Learning new stuff is always fun when it evolves around music. ;)

JRC - wow, slow and low and mellow and wow!

Keith - See, now I was going to do this version of the song and make it just sound like that... in my dreams! Very nice playing, and lovely sounding whistle!!

Here it is, on solo mountain dulcimer:

Lo-fi:

And here's some dulcimer TAB. You will want to copy/paste it into a plain-text editor (e.g. Notepad) to get the notes to line up correctly.


Tune: Finlandia (Be Still My Soul)
Time: 4/4
Key: D major
Tuning: DAd

Very soothing. I remember that there was something on the Christmas album from you that I especially liked ('In the Bleak Midwinter' I think), but this ranks as one of my favorite recordings of yours. Nicely done, RT10.

* wagging tail, barking loudly* :P

Nice job - I have come to really appreciate the dulcimer through your playing Ren. Well done.

Are those the traditional chord changes? Any 'artistic license' taken?

Just got through having a listening party on this thread, and my tail's wagging, too! 8)

Shan, I didn't know there was another version. The Ginny Owens version is nice, especially the way you handled it. :mrgreen:

Keith, I always appreciate your simply-unfooled-around-with arrangements. It allows the true beauty of the melody to come through, and the listeners can create their own accompaniments in their minds. ;)

Also, thanks for your kind words. 8)

Jim, that was awesome! If the altered-minor keyboard chords and synth pad were the spice in the enchilada, then that outro was definitely the cheese sauce. 8) ;)

And no, I'm not sure whether or not these are the traditional chords. I just came up with them. Thanks for your kind words as well.

Cheers,
Jim

P.S.: Are we ready to start another Christmas album? :mrgreen:

Soon. One of the main people involved in this asked that I not say much until after November 2nd, but there is plenty of time to start getting things ready. And if enough people are good boys and girls, I'll be giving away another whistle. But more on that later.

I will eventually get this one recorded. Want to use a guitar with it the reyburn with the guitar tuned either Drop D or DADGAD and see what happens. Tonight is the last night of the Hallowween gig(Thank you Lord heh) and will have a week or so to recover. Luckily this tune does not require singing cause by tonight I will have no voice. wet and cold do not make for good singing conditions :)

Judy has given us a dulcimer version of Be Still:

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

She says:

Quote:
There's a quick, barely tweaked version of Finlandia/Be Still My Soul done on the mountain dulcimer... I was 'noodling' with the tune and found that the basic melody and harmony could be played on the middle & bass string just keeping the fingers at the same fret spacing ... but the bass string squeaks when sliding between notes. Oh well -- It was fun to do so it's left as is. The second time through the song a mixture of two separate arrangements from Everything Dulcimer was used. Wish I had more time available to play with the song -- it's always been a favorite.

Judy, I LOVE your chord choices. There's something about just the right chord on a dulcimer.

Nice.

Judy, I LOVE it! :mrgreen:

I like how you managed to include the chords without compromising the primitive quality of the instrument. 8)

Here's the tune from Adrian's perspective:

This clip is a bit raw as I didn't really practice but i wanted to get something on TPE. The whistle is an Overton F.

Finlandia is an emotive tune for me. I was brought up in the 1960s in a solitary house in some woods in Cornwall with my two sisters. We did not have electricity, running water, or gas for that matter, but what we did have was an old wind-up gramaphone that played 78 records. Out of the tweve or so records we owned was my mother's most treasued recording of Finlandia. We listened to it and the other 78s on special occasions. To this day I don't fully know why the tune always brought a tear to my mother's eye. She did tell us that it reiminded her of the terrible struggle the Finns made for survival against the Russians and the high price they paid for independance.

Finlandia also reminds me of a hymn we sing to that tune in England, "We rest on thee, our shield and our defender". This was the last hymn sung by the Auca five in Ecuador before they were killed by the Indians they came to minister to. Jim's wife, Elisabeth Elliot, named her book using the last line from that hymn, "Through gates of spendour". It was from reading this book in the summer of 1982 that i gave my life to serving God in missions.

A special tune for me!

Adrian, that is just beautiful.

Played flawlessly and the Overton sounds amazing.

I just can't overstate how much I like that recording. It's obvious the tune means a lot to you.

thanks for blessing us with it.

Adrian: Well played. Among many things with your playing, one thing that I'm envious of is your ability to play the tune through about a thousand times (slight exaggeration) using only the whistle and still keep it interesting. Remarkable. I have trouble getting two verses played without becoming monotonous.

(You commented on Song #22, where I used a Low C to play Abide with me, that you now need a Low C. Overton makes a low C :-k . I'll bet you'd get along well with it, and I think you could have it before Christmas.)
