Adrian, this is a lovely drawing. Is it yours?

The tune sounds nice. That Overton suits your playing style very well.


Thank you.

Not my drawing. I wish I was that good!

Zoukie has given us a pennywhistle Christmas tune!

Joy to the World

It's played on my Dixon Trad key of D and I play some simple back-up on my cheapo bouzouki.


Very joyful :D

I love Christmas music!

Zoukie ... you're right -- "Joy to the World" sounds really good! So that's what a bouzouki sounds like .... \:D/

Walden .... Very cool, as usual! 8)

Adrian ..... "In the Bleak Midwinter" may be my favorite piece of yours so far. It's gorgeous! :thumbsup:


You are very kind - thank you.

You guys all were awesome - Zoukie, Adrian and Walden.

Zoukie - do you like the Trad? I'm on the fence with it ... it takes/allows so little air that I find I have to make an effort to not over-breathe. what do you think?

Adrian the Overtons sounds amazing and your playing was really outstanding on this one.

Walden - a three holed whistle and a bell ....

Kudos to all!!!!!!!!

Thank y'all!

Jrc - I just LOVE my Trad. Just for the reason you mentioned, that it requires so much air. It is so easy to play, it's just amazing. It is true that you need to hold back to not overbreathe, but I think that's a good thing. Once you've got control over that, it's a wonderful instrument. I have three Dixons, the trad and two Polymer whistles and they're all great.

One from me.

Right-click to download
Silent Night

Played on a Burke Al C.


This one of my favourite Christmas tunes. I love that it was written for guitar.

My grandfather said that one Christmas when he was fighting in the trenches in WWI that they sang it with the Germans by singing it in both languages. They sang lots of other carols to each other. They didn't kill anyone that day and he said it was one of the most memorable days of his life.



(Blackhawk, not a single Irish ornament in this clip to illustrate what we were talking about.)

I recorded another version of "Hyfrydol" using the baritone dulcimer this time. I really like this melody -- it's a joy to play. The 'new' tune is "The Cherry Tree Carol", also played on the baritone dulcimer. This is an alternate tune to the carol Walden has already posted. This is a longer (verse-wise) version than I normally post -- but a friend here at home requested I record it for her.

That was awesome, Blackhawk! "Oh Come Oh Come Immanuel" was played on my Silkstone Low A. I ended up playing that for church on the same whistle the next day.

Well, after a Christmas shopping trip this afternoon that included me locking my keys in the car (and fishing them back out again with a wire hanger, since I was kind to myself and left the window open about an inch :roll: ), I decided I needed a little refreshing of my Christmas spirit, so I sat down and finally listened to the last 7 or 8 posts or so. That did the trick! I even think my headache is starting to go away.

All y'all did fabulous work!! :thumbsup: Cheers all around! Zoukie - glad to see a post from you esp. since I don't think I'd heard you play before.

I'm learning a lot here listening to you guys. I'm so glad I found PWA when I did!

Adrian -- Silent Night is wonderful!

Josh -- that's a beautiful piece. It seems to me to have a Native American sound in spots ... a bit haunting in some of the ornaments.

Darvis -- Beautiful! Love it!

Do you guys realize we're over 45 clips so far? WOW! Image

There's nothing I can add to what Judy said ... all very nice.

Adrian, you can hear this song is important to you - thanks for letting us in on that part of your life.

Josh I really like the way you changed the end of the phrase - the"shall come to you" line - way cool.

Darvis - are you the same Blackhawk we had to 'beat' to get a recording from :shock: ? Sweet job mate!!!

Well I guess I can add something after all ... nice recordings guys!!

peace - jrc
