Shan! That's wonderful, I love it. Delightful whistle and very well played.

The whistle is a Tommy tweaked C what?

Nice work, Shan. Tommy's tweaked whistles are some of my favorite. Not loud, of course, but always enjoyable to play and the tone is sweet and pleasant.

Cool!!! That's a good start - Judy, are you there? Anyone else?

thanks Ren - you really fattened up the song. Nicely done.


Thanks, Jim. 8)

OK, Judy, how 'bout fattening this thing up even more? :mrgreen:


Yeah Judy, where's your harp?


Great idea! A harp would give it just the right amount of "sparkle". 8)


...yeah , a harp ... cool ... 8)


HARP??!! :shock: Awwww man .... love to try it, not sure I have time right now to figure out a harp part. If one of you fine fellows want to write out in SMN what ya want as a harp part (keeping it between the G below middle C to the G 2 octaves above middle C and fairly easy) I'd give it a shot. I just can't take the harp to the hospital to 'work out' anything.

Forgive me, but what's SMN?

Edit: Standard Music Notation - I got it. And given the range, I'm guessing treble clef. hmmmm....

Guys, let's remember that Judy has a family funeral to attend this week (see the prayer requests for last week...she lost a 23 year old cousin in a car accident 6 days ago), and on top of that she's taking care of her mother, who almost died last week. I think Judy has a lot on her plate right now. :)

Well, I don't want to cheat Judy out of contributing, but if she can't do it, I'll take it back up and add some dulcimer and maybe some low whistle harmony.

Go for it, Ren - you can preserve the original clip with bass and organ and Judy can play at her leisure.

I'll try to write something for her, but it'll be this weekend before I have time.

It's a much-improved Walton, and one of my favorites now.

Glad you liked the tune. I thought it was worth learning a few cross-fingerings for the sharps. :)

jrc - loved the Canu Cwnsela! Any idea how you'd actually say that?

Probably kani koonsela in south Wales. There are lot of dialects in Welsh (and Irish) though.

Here's a new one from Keith:

Away In a Manger

He says:

I recorded this in the last few minutes rather than going to McDonalds for Spam and eggs. "Away in a Manger" played on my Reviol Low C.

Wow, what a pretty whistle! McDonald's loss is our gain. That was groovy. I esp. liked the second verse!

Very, very nice Keith.

That's a sweet whistle, and you bring out the best in it. Good stuff.

OK, it's back out there now with dulcimer added.

That's really nice Ren - I'd personally like the dulcimer a little hotter in the mix, kinda between the bass and whistle, just a bit more up front, but that's must my opinion. I really had to listen for it, but it was really cool the way you waited for the second pass.

Ok, I guess I have to finally admit that I'm not going to have time to go back and clean this one up.

Blackhawk sent me his version of God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen... and I turned it into my version. :mrgreen:

This is just the "scratch" tracks -- where I work out my ideas. Then once my decisions are made, I go back record it all clean.

But..... that ain't going to happen before Christmas, so here's the sloppy version. Sorry Blackhawk. Feel free to post your whistle track as a stand-alone as well.

The only things I'm playing "live" are guitar, bass and various shakers. Everything else I got off the Internet and added with a bit of editing.

I meant to add some more guitar lead line at the end but ..... no more time. Just some sloppy bass. And I need to bring up the guitar accompaniment on the last 8 bars. (incessant tweaker)

God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen

I was planning to keep it pretty much in the background in case we have another contributor. If we don't, I'll put it back out with the dulcimer turned up a bit.
