Whoever gets the Hoover low G gets a very nice whistle. It fingers like a Bb, and better than some Bbs. Gorgeous woodgrain and nice tone.

Indeed ... very nice. I would have guessed Connie or Kitty by the guitar sound.

O Holy Night


There's really no need to keep this secret any longer. Connie is the person who played the version above of 'O Holy Night'. She has the Low G whistle in her possession and will send it out after I draw the name.

Today is December 7 (a significant day in history by the way) and I think I'll choose the name on December 21. Two weeks for more of you to post.

:shock: Thanks! Kitty's a master guitarist. Would have to have better timing to be Kitty's guitaring. But thanks. Thanks!

I'd LOVE a Celtic harp. I don't have that kind of money. Unless Blackhawk has a Celtic harp he'd like to sell. :lol:

Thanks everybody. I'm starting to wonder about how my ears are aging. It sounded fine to me until I heard it in Quicktime. Now I think I'll re-play the whistle track with the pitch lowered a little.

This little wonder of a giveaway whistle is tunable, too.

There's still time to play and record a tune. I will pick the name on Friday night.

I've recorded 12 carols, and I'm trying to get them on the site and I'm not succeeding. This is the first time I record myself, and I made a few little slips, but that's o.k.. I'm excited that I got it done. :lol: I sent Shadoes the songs to see if he can help me, but I'll gladly take other suggestions in the meantime. Also, I really want to get it done in time to be in the whistle contest, and time is running out. :cry:

Lyn, don't despair. In your IE browser, go to this address:

ftp://praisewhistlers.org

When it asks for a username, type pwatunes

When it asks for a password, type mystyle

When you get in there, click Christmas 2007. Then if you have a fairly up-to-date IE browser, go to the right hand of your tool bar, and you'll see a drop-down menu called "Page." Click that, and choose "Open FTP Site in Windows Explorer."

My firewall then tells me a program wants to do something. Yours might too. Just say yes. Then I have to enter my password again. I don't know if you'll have to or not. Just go ahead and put in myway again.

Now you're in. Just drag and drop your songs from your computer into that new page.

Later on we can talk ftp clients. For now this should get the job done for you. :D

Give it a try and if you have any more questions just ask.

Connie,

I did what you said. When the Christmas 2007 page opened I saw the other songs there, then I dragged and dropped my songs onto the page,
but I don't see them on the list.

Thanks Keith. I only did the songs through once and I did a few slips but I'm glad I got it done. The minute I put the page in the browser, it goes right to the page. I don't even have to put in the ID or password. Then, I click on Christmas 2007. I still don't see them.
Wait, I see them on the page I dropped them on, but not on the Directory, Christmas 2007, page.

Lyn

Nice job, Lyn! I just listened to your posts. You have a nifty little vibrato to your playing that I really like. Is that all you, or a little recording magic thrown in?

And thanks, Keith for the link to make it easy to hear her. By the way, I'm going to miss the gathering tonight, since I'll be busy sleeping at 1:00am EST! But I'll be looking for a post announcing the winner as soon as I get up... a fashionably 5 hours late for the party.

Good luck to all our Christmas musicians!

Yay! Another convert into Geekdom. :)

I can tell "Away In a Manger" is done on a flute.

Thank you all for your kind words. It was really exciting to do this. There is nothing added or deleted in any carol. It's only me, slips and all. :roll:

Shan, I plead guilty.
Kitty, you're right on the flute.

Instruments the carols were played on:

- The First Noel - Burke DBSBT
- O Come, O Come, Emmanuel - Bleazey flute in Cooktown Ironwood
- Lo! How A Rose E're Blooming - Bleazey flute
- Child In The Manger - Burke DBSBT
- O Come All Ye Faithful - Burke DBSBT
- Away In A Manger - Tipple 3-piece flute with lip plate
- Hark! The Herold Angels Sing - Tipple
- Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus - Oak Alum. D
- God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen - Dixon Solid Brass D
- We Three Kings - Feadog Brass D
- Good Christian Men Rejoice - Oak Alum. D
- Silent Night - Bleazey Flute

A reminder about file naming conventions:

Basically, when you name your file as you save it onto your computer, do not use spaces or punctuation of any kind. This is so that your file can be accessed by any browser out there with no problems.

Examples:
this_is_my_song_kitty.mp3
ThisIsMySong_kitty.mp3

Also, always use your turn signal.

Kitty
