Very good job, Aaron. =D> :thumbsup:

Nice ornamentation again but it's kind of asking for a few grace notes don't you think?

This one is on an antique American ceramic ocarina. Notice how I tilt the instrument sharply to get an extra low note.

The round disk on the end is for adjusting the tuning slide.

Sweet! Interesting that you can get an extra low note, just as it is possible to get a low C# on a D whistle by using the pinkie to shade the end of the whistle.

Nice tune.

My hands are small, so I usually get it by jamming the end of the whistle up against my leg.

This is why some taborers dislike large pipes, because it makes it impossible to cover the end with the finger.

I did a test run of O Come, O Come, Emmanuel tonight. The only mod to the recording is a slight delay effect to add some fullness to what would otherwise have been a very bland recording of a single instrument.

My intention is to play fiddle for the counter melody and either Low D or Bass D for the chords to fill in the bottom end of the song. Dan Bingamon loaned me his Bass D and that thing is a beast!

Sweet! Great sounding whistle too ... what is it?

I agree with the delay too - it needs some 'space' about the whistle to make it sound nice.

Excellent job - more please!

How'd you record it? What gear/software?

Audacity via built-in mic array on my laptop.

The trick I use to get a clean recording is to leave several seconds of non-playing space at the start. I then use that section as my "noise profile". I highlight it, tell Audacity to learn that noise profile, then use that to remove the noise from the rest of the recording. Voila! Noise free recording. Mostly, at least.

Is a good thing this was just a test recording. I missed a note and my execution could use a little more work. Not great stuff, but better than I was a few months ago.

"Jesus, Jesus, Rest Your Head" an Appalachian carol (which this old Appalachian had never heard of until it was discussed on Everything Dulcimer), as arranged by Nina Zanetti (basically) ... played on a baritone mountain dulcimer.

Apologies for the breath sounds. The H2 Zoom picks up everything and I'm trying out ways to change that ... or maybe I need to stop breathing while recording. :shock: Suggestions welcome ..... :)

No, no - breathing is good! :)

Not going to comment on any one entry here; just want to say that I've enjoyed them all.

Caedmon: Very nice. I enjoyed that. You don't seem to tongue notes on the whistle parts here. Am I right?

Correct. I was going for a legato feel, which means holding a lot of notes out in a possibly un-Irish way. I may re-record the long b-note passages with a slight 'da' sound. I experimented with cuts, taps and rolls, and none of them sounded appropriate.

Oh Yes, I love it!!! I'm not really a devotee of dulcimer but track is a winner! Very well played and great mix. \:D/ =D> :thumbsup:

Thanks for sharing that recording.
