I don't have a dog in this hunt.
Richard: nice! very entertaining.
Eric: Very good!
I'll try to keep those suggestions in mind.
Sarge: I know what you mean now about an instrumental break. I suppose thinking on it that most songs do have such a thing.
This is the first song that I have recorded using Audacity rather than strictly an instrumental piece. The more I do this the more I learn about the mechanics of music.
Thanks to you all for listening and for your comments.
Not sure what that means. Are you meaning like a harp solo stuck in there someplace?
For something different, I thought I would try a tune where i had to make up a harmonica backup. This Is a John Prine song named "Dear Abbey". Dear Abbey was a syndicated news column where some strange(but not always) folks would write in asking for advice to some sometimes very strange problems. The question always started with "Dear Abbey" and end "signed (whatever the problem was)". This column ran for several decades and was read and known by lots of folks. Anyways John Prine wrote this little tune about this newspaper column.
Yup. that's me trying to sing, play the guitar and Harmonica all at the same time. lol!
Thanks to you all.
Richard: Yes. I did all the instruments and made the piece with Audacity. It has Guitar, Mt. Dulcimer, Jews harp and of course the harmonica. It took about 3 hours to get it into the shape it is in.
Well this won't be accurate for sure! Guess I'm taking a chance on the 2nd Australian National anthem.
Mt. Dulcimer made by Mike Moran.
Harp is a PT Gazell in Low D (Seydel 1847 reworked)
