Share your musical journey / Üsküdar'a gider iken - Turkish folk song
« on: September 27, 2019, 01:06:30 pm »
This one's good for practicing the acute bends to get D# and B,
I usually play D# by playing an E while doing an acute bend (bend your head/body as if you are bowing to bring the fipple on the back close - about 10 cm from - to your chest), although I can also play it with a change in embrochure.
I play B, by either playing C while doing an acute bend or by changing my embrochure.

You can find the sheet at abcnotation.com

Share your musical journey / Inisheer
« on: February 18, 2019, 02:33:17 pm »
https://www.micksvirtualwhistle.net/inisheer.html

Beautifully played here and (cough, cough) there's a gif showing a transcription of how he plays it. I say "cough, cough" because even though lots of people think that Inisheer is a traditional air, it was actually composed in the 1970's by an Irish accordionist, Thomas Walsh. I'm not sure how OK it is to publish the sheet music on the internet, although at the session https://thesession.org/tunes/211 I found this along with lots of abc versions, including ones that will get you a result equivalent to the way it's played at Mick's Virtual Whistle:

Regarding the copyright to Inisheer. Thomas Walsh has copyrighted the tune, and he would like anyone who is recording the tune professionally to make arrangements for the use through the publishing company that represents him, www.crashedmusic.com. I am in the process of arranging use of the tune for a CD for the group I am in, and they seem to be good folks to work with. So if you plan to record this tune, give the author his due and pay for use of the rights.

The post at the session said Mr. Walsh is happy to have people playing the tune in public without paying royalties if not recording professionally.

The gif shows the key of D, but there are actually no C#'s in the tune. For CODA, I recommend transposing down a full step/major second - you end up in the key of C. I started by learning it on CODA in the key of D and I just couldn't manage the chamber switches to get the sound I wanted. Even though there are chamber switches in the key of C, they occur at more convenient times. (Of course, now I have to unlearn the key of D fingering).

Also...if you can reliably play a low Bb and low C on an MO, you can transpose down again so that the key is Bb-major and lowest note a Bb - sounds pretty good on my warmstone G.

General Discussion / Re: Best keys for CODA and MO?
« on: February 18, 2019, 02:13:08 pm »
I think the natural timbre of the instrument really does make a difference, though. There are some tunes I can play with reasonable technical proficiency in a couple of keys, but I like one better. And I read that as a rule, more sharps tend to make for a cheerier sound - which is good in some tunes and less desirable in others.

General Discussion / Best keys for CODA and MO?
« on: February 11, 2019, 09:44:17 pm »
I was trying to figure out why some tunes sound better in certain keys and I found out by googling that it's not just aesthetics - the natural timbre of the instrument plays a role in determining what sounds good or not-so-good.
So my question to you experienced MO and CODA players - technical issues aside, are there any keys that you particularly (dis)like for CODA and MO?

The songs I posted are pretty well-known (at least in HI) and you can google the lyrics.

...and I'm waiting for a copy of the movie to arrive at my local public library because you guys liked it so much.

BTW, if your public library subscribes to Hoopla, you might check to see if the soundtrack is on your library's Hoopla catalog - it was on my library's offerings.

Share your musical journey / Greensleeves
« on: January 18, 2019, 02:22:11 pm »
I'm working on my c, f and g sharps, so I've got sheets for versions of Greensleeves similar to what's already in the CODA book and (more challenging) similar to what's in the MO instruction book. I also discovered that Ubizmo's tipping down method works pretty well on the low D# (finger an E and tip down).

pdf for MO <https://sites.google.com/site/ocarinastuff/finale-notepad-files-1/Mist_Covered_ChiMiNa_MO.pdf> - sounds really good on a G-warmstone

EDIT (1/15/2019): I couldn't figure out what was wrong with the 2nd and 3rd measures in lines 1 and 3 and it was because I was using a waltz version instead of a choral version as my base. I think I finally got it straight now.

And...in my OP I said it was harder to play the version in C on CODA b/c of all the chamber switches. Two weeks on and I'm in love with the version in C.

Well, we could do this, if someone wants to mix the music...

(Little Symphony Project). You can't hear me, but I'm in the vid for a few seconds representing MO with a Warmstone C.

What they did is post music (which you had to play along with exactly) and when you were ready, you recorded while listening to their track, uploaded your recording to YouTube and they mixed the music and vids.

Grégory,

Aujourd'hui j'ai découvert votre musique bretonne sur le forum MO et j'aime beaucoup celui-ci - merci!

Où se trouve des collections de musique bretonne?

(Mon français est très mauvais mais j'essaie de pratiquer parce que nous allons à Paris chaque année).
