Hey!

Good to see another whistling maniac! I normally enjoy more listening to tin rather than low, but for me low whistles are much easier to play (yes!! I do really think so!), so I when I'm the one playing, i prefer low.

I have a generations (not really tweaked, but they're so bad that you always have to make the sth) in D, C and G. I always have the same problem, they don't work well in the high second octave :-(.

My favourite one is the D sustato, so I also have some preoblems in the 2 octave...

We have plenty to talk about whisltes and maybe excahgne some music to play or some music sheets. Do you use soulseek RovinWhislter?

Aye I do use soulseek, my name is RovingWhistler.

My Clarke Sweetone plays the second octave quite well though my Clarke original always seems to have too much of a breathy sound to it. I have a few whistling tutor books as well as some song books that I use to pick/learn songs, though I find myself spending hours searching for sheeet music to a song I heard and happen to love.

hello my friends! it's the 1st time I visit this site and I'm very glad 2 know that there r lot of musicians here.

I'm going 2 produce a cd with my goup here in italy and we r looking 4 people who wants 2 record some tracks in our work.

if u have a home recording software and u r able 2 record some tracks we'd like u let us know: we can send u our songs (in mp3 format) and u could record a track by your own. then, if u send back to us your tracks we can use them in our cd. we can not pay for that but we'll insert your name in the booklet. it's just an experiment but if it works it'll allow us to realize the biggest recording studios in the world.

I know my english it's not very good but 4give me: i'll try to improve it.

10q since now.

Unfortunately, I don't think my recording software and micro is good enough... But the main problem is that my quality is eve worse.

Canned music doesn't work for me.

Hello all! I have loved and played music for as long as I can remember. Whether it was beating out rhythms on my toy Smurfs drum set when I was 5 years old or tinkling around on the piano as I have the last little bit.

I play acoustic guitar and sing mostly (I have a Takemine EG-240), but I also play electric guitar, mandolin, some piano (learning, as a matter of fact), drums/percussion, harmonica, and am wanting to one day learn either violin or banjo (maybe both!)

I am also interested in home recording! I have a few different types of software (Cool Edit Pro, Fruity Loops, Acid Pro, and Sound Forge) but am looking for some quality, affordable, user-friendly recording equipment including but not limited to a mixer, microphones, processors, and whatever else anyone else here might suggest. I am in the process of working with a good friend of mine, Aaediwen (who frequents this site often), on recording some of his poetry in a spoken word format with some musical tapestries in the background. I'm looking to spend a fairly small amount on most of this equipment but he already has a good tape deck; meanwhile, I have a 40 GB PC with 128 MB RAM and a 533mHz processor (not bragging for sure, I need to upgrade this sucker along with building my home recording studio!) and enough musical instruments and recording software to get started I just need the hardware, that's all!

If anyone has any suggestions on this matter, drop me a line or reply. Thank you!

Wow! There are a LOT of musicians here! I would post some of my playing, to your ears sorrow, but I don't have the equiptment! Oh well.. good luck with your home recording studio Haldur! I hope to be looking into something like that one day..but unfortunately don't understand a word you said describing your equiptment..
Anyway..I tend to use sheet music, because that was the way I was taught Viola, my first instrument. Working on piano, D tin whistle, and flute at the moment..but should probably get better on the violin first! Some nice websites with sheet music that I use at times are:

http://www.traditionalmusic.co.uk/

http://crab.rutgers.edu/~pbutler/music.html (this is more renaissance and medieval)

and http://www.celticmusic.com/cgi-bin/tunes.pl

Hope these help whoever would like sheet music!

Oddly, I have 5-string banjo that's currently unused (I'm busy with cittern, recorder, guitar, mountain dulcimer, getting ready for small pipes, and trying not to lose my skill on the keyboard). It's an old (el cheapo) Hondo II that needs a resonator and a 5th-string tuning peg. I got it mostly free. I do plan to learn to play it. Sometime.

Some music sites I use for sheet music -

http://chivalry.com/cantaria/

http://www.ceolas.org/tunes/#abc (you'll need something that'll handle abc format)

http://sca.uwaterloo.ca/~praetzel/sca-music.html

among others.

I am also planning on setting up a home recording studio - using my linux computer's hard drive and the sound equipment I've got. Somewhere in amongst all the rest of what's going on.

Anyone for Lark Camp next summer? http://www.larkcamp.com/

Or the Wicked Tinkers at Angels Camp for Equinox? Not sure I'll make it. http://www.poundiron.com/page8.html

Hi rwfranz and welcome to the site. I think you would enjoy playing the banjo. I never read music I read tablatur. Not sure of the spelling. You sound like you are quite talented, must be nice. I had to learn to tune the banjo by ear that wasn't a lot of fun. Do you write any music? We Welcome once again I think you will enjoy the music and the people here, we call each other family. smile.gif

Well,, Drum Corps stuff when I was a kid,,
picked up the bass in Highschool,, played that ever since..
Started to play the Hammered Dulcimer about two years ago..
I love it, and it lends itself beautifuly to Celtic music,,
working on some songs from Phantom atm ...

Home recording.. haha I have a four track pig ,
that I've had forever..
you know, it still makes some pretty fine recordings,,
and can be transfered to a CD format easily ...

That sounds great rwfranz! Keep up with all those instruments...it pays off in the end because its such a great outlet for creativity. I've never went about learning the banjo, though I've held a couple in music stores and it was Greek to me (the whole Stairway to Heaven thing!) They have a very interesting sound...I grew up listening to them a lot because much of my family played music and we frequented some Bluegrass shows. And if you know anything about Bluegrass music, the banjo is always in there!

Speaking of recording on a Linux system, Aaediwen and I are starting work on our own little "home recording studio". He runs a Linux system with Audacity. Never used either (I'm still a Windows junky for some reason) but this promises to be a great project!
