Banjo As High Tech

Monday, November 6, 2006

Oy.  I posted this earlier today and came back and it wasn't here.  So I will post a little something again (and now I've learned to write my entries in an email to myself so I have them if there's a board-burp again.)

I am a gadget head.  I am.  I love high tech.  But today it took me an hour to try to figure out why my little iRiver T30 was not recording.  I finally broke down and looked at the manual online.  Once I got THAT figured out, I played and recorded some tunes, which I posted here on my music page.

First is the Wildwood Flower bit I mentioned yesterday that I had forgotten about.  Nice to know I am making progress.

Second is Country Roads, by John Denver and arranged by Jay Buckey.  The first measure is hesitant and I have some muddiness at the end.  I want to post a cleaner rendition of this song, because I think I play it pretty well.  Third is Eight More Miles to Louisville.  The first half is the vocal back up rolls that I usually sing to.  The second half is a Martinesque arrangement similar to his "happy banjo" bit.  (There's no tab author on my print out to attribute, sorry.  I do give credit where due.)

I had a heck of a time editing the mp3's when I was done.  Something is wrong in my copy of audacity and it is not reading mp3 files correctly.  I am going to have to uninstall it and download a clean copy.  I found a program called "Blaze" which is way more than I need, but it's 15-day free trial-ware.  That's what I finally used.  What I need is something simple like Windows Sound Recorder.  If you know of one, holler.

So enjoy  listening.  I'm proud of my progress.  I am still a n00b, but I am moving forward.
