solarbird: (music)

Busy making learning tracks today; these are where you take other peoples’ recordings of Irish tunes and chain them together in appropriate ways, mixing and modifying them as needed, to make new set performances of what you’re trying to do.

They’re Irish tunes in this case, for the book soundtrack album, and, yes, falls under fair use for educational purposes. Maybe I can post a couple of 30-second excerpts of transitions? I don’t know!

Anyway, have some link fun:

I’m thinking of a recommendations/reviews post next Friday. You supply recommendations, I repost them the following week. Worth a go? Speak up, but don’t post them yet! Wait ’till I’m sure I’m going to do it. ^_^

Have a good weekend, everybody; see you Monday!

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012, CASCADIA, AND ALL SHORES BEYOND!

With the close of 2011, we come to the end of the Cracksman Betty project. But not before we add a 12th track, a gift for your New Year 2012.

Some of the songs on Cracksman Betty are centuries old. This final addition – one I’ve been promising quietly for two months – isn’t traditional. It’s a cover, of sorts. The music and arrangement are my own, but the lyrics are by a musician named Frank Hayes. Frank wrote these lyrics in 1982, a mere 30 years ago, not centuries. But in computer terms, that’s at least as many generations in the past.

So come back with me, to days of old, when computers weren’t bought – they were built! By hand! Come back with me – to the days of The S-100 Bus.

It is, of course, a free download. Enjoy.
