Really nice Keith - I had a sneak preview over the weekend!! But don't tell anyone, OK? The Cheiftain sounded really smooth - what do you use to record?

Thanks, Jim. I use Audacity and a little logitech computer microphone.

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

Kitty

Though this isn't as complete as the 'incessant tweaker' might hope for, I enjoyed this. It's just plain fun. I have to admit that when it first started, I was bit distracted by something or other. I wasn't expecting thunder and I looked to my window to see the weather outside. :oops:

That's what I was going for. :) (I'm an otter, can you tell?)

Man, the more I listen to this, the sloppier it gets. [sigh]

I really enjoyed the clip - as musicians, we tend to over-analyze our work.

Sometimes, it's just got to be 'done'..... maybe this is one of those times.

Like I said, I really like it. Just my .02 cents.

And ... I thought you were a rabbit? :mrgreen: Possibly an otter in a rabbit suit?

Peace-

Otter-retriever, here. Which means it's perfect. Sounds like you had fun. Go reward yourself by relaxing. Let it rest, come back later, and it'll sound better. :mrgreen:

Play hard. Then rest. That is my motto.

Oh. And normal is boring. :mrgreen:

And BTW, I enjoyed it VERY much.

Now that I've posted them, I can hear all the mistakes. I was in too big a hurry to get some posted on my rare day off. Ah well. :oops:

:-k Mistakes? Couldn't find one. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen was done with pizazz.

I don't know In the Bleak Midwinter terribly well. There may have been some sharp notes there, but I may be wrong, and it still sounded good.

Don't beat yourself up over good music, Bro. Sounds good to me. :D

Blackhawk and khl-- nice tunes, guys! Just popped in for a quick listen and loved it.

Oh, and I was a little startled by the thunder at first, too. Trying to do too many things at once and didn't know where it was coming from at first. I really liked it once I figured out what was going on. The collaborations are turning out great!

Very nice Keith.

There is something special about the whistles in F. The sound of the Chieftain is delicious.

When I first read that, I thought it said 'pizzas', and thought "COOL - he's been to the bodojo site!"

Thank you Adrian and Shan. I"m feeling a little better about it now.

I'm sorely disappointed in my inability to finish my Canon track. I was going to play some fun improv to the track I posted for improv training. However, school let out and my entire clan came to my house on the same day Thursday. Today all but my mom and I went hiking and so I tried my best to not be distracted by her and go ahead and record the improv. Got halfway through and the clan came home.

Oh well. Since the entire track is self-created using Finale 2008, please consider the track as my second tune.

Don't make this one count, since it's unfinished, but this gives you an idea of how I wanted it to sound.
