Here is BrassBlower's clip. And what he had to say about it


http://praisewhistlers.org/exchange/songfile/JesusPaidItAll_BrassBlower.mp3

Quote:
Whistles used (in order of appearance): Hoover D, Generation Eb, Hoover E, Generation F.

Other instruments: Acoustic Guitar, Electronic Keyboard.

Note: All tracks were recorded twice, and there is no electronic pitch-shifting, so that makes a total of 18 tracks. This is a record for me by far.

Thanks, Judy! :D

1. Even with my relatively small hands, I still have trouble getting my fingers on the holes of a Gen G.

2. I use the metronome function in my sound editor.

Thanks Ron and Connie for posting your clips. It really is nice to hear the variety of interpretations and the different whistles.

I liked the harmony with the Greenwood, Connie. It sounds mellower than I remember my Greenwood being. I'll have to give the harmony thing a shot with one of the songs.

Good tracks by all. I have a been a bit lax with the comments this time around. been a busy time around the new house. Trying like heck to get the new song ready for posting tonight or tomorrow. Should be interesting to hear what folks come up with for the next one.

Once again good tracks by all :) Now lets get ready to move on to the next tune :)

I found this to be difficult to learn for some reason. It is a very simple tune but I still had trouble. I enjoy hearing everyone else's versions. It is interesting how different we all play a simple tune. I will always have a tendency to play a little up tempo. It comes from years of hearing my mother say, " I wish they wouldn't drag the hymns". Sometimes I try to slow down and play more meditatively but it is difficult.

I have to..and this is going to sound cheesy... let the song find its own tempo. Some songs naturally gravitate to a faster tempo some do not. And I find that when I try to play something out of what I call its 'natural' tempo it tends to be uncooperative :) But then they do tend to DRAG a lot of hymns. Fortunatly my church doesn't have that problem. Sometimes we have the opposite problem hehehe

Thanks. I do like that Greenwood. Seems it's the one I can't put down lately. You know, it could be your Greenwood was mellower than you remember. I think the sound we hear playing a whistle is different from the sound others hear. Probably something to do with being on top of--and close to--the source of sound, as opposed to being in front of and somewhat buffered from the sound-source.

Ron, thanks for your version of the song. I like especially the second-to-the-last line of it, the part that goes along with "sin had left a crimson stain." It just sounded really nice. You captured something, there.

BTW, Shadoes, I really liked that Didgeroo thing. Not sure what it is exactly, but the sound really captures the imagination, eh?

And thanks, too, for keeping up with us procrastinators when I know you have plenty to do around home. This project is really neat, hearing everyone's versions of the song. Just making us record ourselves is going to be a giant step forward for all of us skills-wise.

I'm finally working on this one. I didn't know it before (which is one of the cool things about this forum, learning new songs), so I'm having to start from scratch, but I really like it now that I've finally begun playing it. I love all the different versions I've heard here. You guys rock!

Your welcome :)

The digeridoo is an australian aboriginal instrument. basically it is a pipe that you blow into the end of in a similar fashion to how you would play a trumpet. With the buzz of your lips. To properly play it requires you learn circular breathing. Something i have not yet mastered so I use a few sound engineering tricks to make a fairly convincing track.

Have you guys heard Xavier Rudd? Amazing musician. He seems to play everything at once.

I found a studio clip on YouTube. He starts on the digi about 2 and half minutes in and you can clearly see the breathing thing going on.

I've seen better haircuts on him, by the way. ;)

My first fiddle clip!

You guys may remember someone gave me a fiddle almost 2 months ago. I haven't been practicing nearly as much as I want to ... but I have been practicing!

This is kind of rough, but you guys are kind. :) My greatest weakness right now (other than this thing has no frets!) is definitely bowing. I get lost and can't figure out what to do with the thing, and it tends to bounce.

http://praisewhistlers.org/exchange/son ... _Kitty.mp3

I also used one of those little Hohner melodica things that my daughter brought home from school.

Wow, Kitty -- for only 2 months of working on the fiddle, that's pretty darn good. =D>

I would still be screeching my way through an unrecognizable version of "Twinkle, Twinkle" at 2 months of fiddling around .... :?

Wow, Kitty! If that's at a couple of months, imagine what you'll be doing at a couple of years.

That melodica is interesting. I remember playing one of those things back in the seventies. Is it me, or does it sound a bit like a concertina? At any rate, it all sounds nice backed by the guitar.

Kitty, it seems to me you take Psalm 150 quite seriously, and you plan to praise God on every type of instrument in the chapter!! How are you with the timbrel (tamorine and drums?) You're quite diverse.

Thanks for the encouragement Judy and Connie. But you guys have to remember that I didn't start from scratch with the fiddle... because of some music theory training, I get a HUGE head start when picking up any new instrument.

Yes, the melodica sounds kind of like a concertina, that's why I like it. But this one is a little sharp so I have to either tune everything to it or pitch-shift it down a little in the software. It's also a little out of tune with itself, but I think that gives it some country charm.

Hey, it was free!

Kitty

Here's a clip from Blackhawk:

    "... on my Burke composite A. It's such a short song that I used Audacity to repeat the track."

Man, those clicks are terrible. Maybe I need to change the settings on "click removal."

I'm giving this song a bump to put it back on the first page so that some might be encouraged to play and record it. I'm thinking of doing another version sometime soon.
