I loved them all. Which dulcimer is that Judy? I really need to record something with the Burke D.


This would be a neat song to record on the Burke, Ron .... :-k .... is it done yet? ;)

The dulcimer is one made by Kurt Simerman in 1995. Laura and I traded dulcimers in September and both came out very happy with the deal. I'll post a picture of it as soon as I remember where I put the camera .... :oops:

Some examples might be :

Fine playing old chap.
Ouch that hurt my ears.
You're off your rocker, go back to the tuba.

I thought it was a tuba? :mrgreen: just kidding ...

seriously ... I listened a while back, but didn't post... I should have then... I'll have to listen again; I remember a bit about it, but I'll give it another listen tonight. Please keep posting tunes - everything's seems a bit slow around here lately.

thanks for sharing bro.

OK! Just gave it another listen-

Very nice job ... have you ever recorded with a click? the phrasing on the whistle and guitar don't quite synch to my ear, but beyond that it's a nice job. chocolate for you!

Something that I like to do, good or bad I don't know, but a lot of these hymns I've never heard, and I like to read the words to get a feel for the song rhythmically (sp?) as well.

Cool! what 's next? 8)

TC, there was a glitch when I downloaded this to listen. My ISP is contrary and downloaded less than 30 seconds. Nice job on what I heard. Hope to download the complete version sometime after April 15th when I have enough time to enjoy it.

This tune becomes more intriguing with every version added. :)

That's always a good idea if you're recording more than one track. Most computer sound devices introduce a slight delay between the production and the recording of the sound, and some even speed it up or slow it down slightly, in which case, you could be dead-on for the first few seconds, but WAY off by the time the tune is over. :shock:

Or worse yet, if you're trying to record over someone else's track, you may have to do a lot of chopping and time-shifting, unless you can find out what BPM setting they used. :shock: :shock:

I guess it still beats the old days of ping-ponging tapes in a recording machine. Unless the two tapes are exactly in sync, you'll be out of tune with yourself, too! :shock: :shock:

Great! That's the kind of feedback I was looking for. I have admitted rhythm issues, but that usually makes me very conscious of what I'm doing.
I haven't been using a click but I think that's a fine idea. If I recall, I tried to do the rhythm guitar first, then put the melody on top which really didn't work. Next I tried to record the whistle by itself, then guitar while monitoring the whistle part. Maybe that added to the "lazy" feeling of the guitar rhythm. What I'll try next is maybe do each independently with a click track then put them together and see what happens.
Feedback much appreciated. I'm still learning and having fun so there will be more to follow!

My experience is rhythm first, then melody or lead unless there's a specific effect you're looking for. If the rhythm is solid you can 'float' a bit with the melody, kinda singing it. If you were going to sing a track, I do guitar (rhythm section), vocal, then fill with the lead instrument (whistle) so you don't walk on the vocal.

Just my opinion ... of course there's many different ways of doing most anything.

I agree with Jim, but I would still suggest using a click track while recording the rhythm track if your recording device doesn't introduce any change in tempo or pitch. If you have a latency issue, you can always time-shift the additional tracks until they line up with the rhythm track.

However, if your recording device does introduce a change in tempo and/or pitch, you should use the click track on everything. Or buy a better device. :shock:

Just out of curiosity TC - what are you using to record?

Nothing fancy at all, just whatever came loaded on the Dell and the freeware Audacity program.
I take that back. I do have a very fancy Sony wav recorder PCM-D1. I'll often run that and just play freely hoping something nice happens. Then I can dump the whole file into Audacity where I can cut and paste, add other tracks and export it as an mp3.
The mics on this recorder are really decent so I can also use it as the scource mic for Audacity.
Thanks again for the tips. I'm really new to trying out multi-tracking, but I feel if I've been blessed enough to play more than one instrument, might as well go for it !

Well, not a tuba - but here's a quick recording on bass clarinet.
