Hey, Joe! Nice job on the air. What kind of recording gear are you using?

Unless I'm completely mistaken it translates (literally) as 'My heart at the door' or 'My love at the door'.

By the way, great idea for the forum Jeff.

Yes, My Love at the Door. I wrote to commemorate the 18th anniversary of my marriage to my resident goddess.

I used a program downloaded from the net to record, and the tiny little microphone that came with my computer.

My Boisvert stick.

You must download the file to your machine. Is it downloading when you click the link?
Nope, it takes forever to tell me it is done... but there is nothing to show for it.

Speed the Plough. or is that 'A Plough Named Speed'? I have a lazy 'A' finger, but I'm working on it.

Doesn't sound too lazy to me, I detect a few nice ACA triplets in there I think.

Hi Jeff,
Ever since I had the arm troubles last year, my upper hand ring finger tends to get a bit lazy and so I tend to over-tense the muscles in that part of my hand and arm to compensate whenever I want to do an 'A' triplet. I've been really trying to relax back on that hand and practicing 'A' rolls - especially the 'tap' with the 'A' finger - to try and retrain it to do a roll on call without tensing up.

If you listen to the final couple of bars of the tune you will hear the notes labour a bit. That is a result of my finger not respnding to my brain. But I'm getting over it slowly.

Cheers,

DavidG

Connaughtman's Rambles.

I'd been looking for a tune to work on with my single baritone regulator and someone suggested this one. I can't figure out what regulator notes to play for the second part of the tune so any suggestions are most welcome.

The chanter is by Kevin Thompson (circa. 1995) and reed by Nick Whitmer. The drones and baritone regulator are by Nick Whitmer.

Hey cool, I have a single baritone reg also and am trying to get on it, I may experiment with this tune also and get back to you.

Of all the stuff I read about learning to play regs, I found Leremarkable's advice (here) the most helpful. Getting the 'bop bop-bop' is tough, but I'm working on it.

Y'know, I've always wondered what Marc van Daal's pipes sounded like, thanks!

Hi Ole,

How did you record this? Sounds like you used at least 2 mics.

Hello : I use a Fostex MR-8 HD multitrackrecorder. When you use all time to practise it is sometime frustrating to hear your own playing recorded when it is recorded on a "not the best gear". I can only recommend the Fostex, which also is very usefull for my sons "teenageband", when they wants to record in cd qualitet. After the recording I recorded into my computer using a analog cable into inline. Then use pro tool editing softwareprogram to record the tune into the computers soundcard.

I use 2 sennheiser e 825 s mics( dynamic). One near the chanter and one near the regs.
The best solution is to use condensatormics. This is my next goal to invest in these mics.

Ole

The Morning Thrush - I've only just learnt this one, so I kinda just about lost it in the first part of the 2nd time round, but somehow mirraculously brought it back. Played on a C# chanter with concert D drones tuned down (not bass though - it can't handle it.) Sorry about the background noises and all together poor quality of the recording.

The Morning Thrush is one of my favorite tunes. I've been meaning to learn it myself, but I keep getting sidetracked. Nice job.
