Re: help on tone?

There are so many possibilities when it come to tone. in my experience with myself, my approach was dard low D or die!!! :swear: Long, short, hard, fat and over and over and over! My image that I used while trying to play this low D was imagining myself blowing a hole through the back of the head jo...

Re: Things we tell Newbies

Perhaps too much of a generalisation here but......what you have today are people who want to be spoonfed with everything.....people who are greedy buggers and materialistic. You also have the so called educated people who argue over just about anything to do with trad music whether it's how to beh...

Re: Recommended recordings?

I must say that Billy McComiskeys new CD is a great example of sweet box playing. He happens to be a local and is a monster at the sessions and the occasional gig. Good stuff :thumbsup:

Re: Which flute to learn on?

A first-rate instrument won't make you into a great musician, but inadequate hardware can hold you back and spoil the fun. If the flute is anything more than an occasional diversion for you, you will probably want to spend more than $100 on an instrument. I try to maintain a reasonable relation bet...

Re: The use of reverb when posting clips?

I find it interesting that such a discussion should even be taking place. Personally I am not even quite sure what reverb even is...I seem to recall however that as a teenager and Jimi Hendrix wannabee ( okay only wanted to be very briefly) I had a practice amp with a dial that was designated as 'r...

Re: Posting clips

Nice tone Chas :thumbsup: In the jigs I was noticing when you take a breath it takes you a bit to get back on the rhythm train. Try tapping your foot to the track. Sounds good though and I enjoyed it. Such a great flute tune :) The reel I though was nice also. There is one part were you threw a tri...

Re: Posting clips

I found that it took me almost no time to build my tone chops. I think it was because as a drummer, we would sing our parts at work as a section. This included triple and double tonguing. Who knew that those years that I was singing drum parts was secretly preparing me for the wonderful world of flu...

Re: The use of reverb when posting clips?

Hi Arbo - you can probably guess my feelings on this - we have discussed it before. Personally - and it is a matter of personal taste - I dislike artifical reverb at whatever stage of the recording it is added. To me it sticks out like a sore thumb and just as unpleasantly. A very small touch to co...
