Here's a clip of two reels, the Liffey Banks and the Shaskeen I've put up on youtube. I'm playing a flute made by Glen Watson.

It says the video has been removed by user...
so I guess it's not available anymore ?

Hello,
I took the clip down, I hadn't listened to it on youtube, the sound was terrible, it was peaking a lot. Any advice on how to get good sound from a digital camera?

Wish I could help with the audio, but I enjoyed your clip regardless. Good stuff!

This one is for the Empty Guru! Now I know right off the bat that the tempo is too fast, and on the second tune I am not sustaining the high 'a's'. But, other than that, go ahead and rip into it. If it strikes someone as being reminicent of any particular style, I'd like to know about it. This is recorded after two takes, on an non-warmed up flute.

Edit: Removed. I just didn't think this was my best effort. Will try again.

I don't have the Harry Bradley clip handy, theough I believe it is on the Tap Room trio cd. In the meantime, check this out. Start at 3:31 in the vid.

Ah thanks. There you go. You see, if you listen carefully, he's not playing a triplet really, or anyway, he doesn't start with an A, but with a B, then C#, then D, which is the note on the beat. I think you do "A-B-C" triplet then D. My version is closer than I thought, but still a bit off.
Well, I was wrong it seems. I had many, many listens at James Morrison's version (he's the one who made that setting of the tune popular) and he's definitely starting the whole thing with an A but it's more like a bunch of notes played in a row than an actual even triplet. P J Conlon is playing it on the box, he must be pushing a few buttons in a very quick sequence. I will listen to the clip dozen of times and try to get that phrasing right, but it's no easy task. I'm really curious to find out what Harry Bradley does on the flute.

Can you send me a copy of the morrison version? I can try to do the same with Harry's.

Greetings from the west of Ireland!

Here is a link to some sound samples from the new Innisfree Ceili Band album. There are four North Connacht flute players to be heard in the mix....

I have posted this in the past, but I thought a fresh take might be appreciated. A slow air entitled, 'The Clare Hills.'

Not sure about the tune Josh, but it does sound familiar to me. I'll have a few more listens and see if it rings any bells. It sure is a toe-tapper. Great playing!

That's it Rama! It's on Conal O'Grada's Top of Coom album. And I was just listening to that in the car yesterday :-? No wonder it sounded familiar.

Good call!!!! That's it. I had asked the name of it during a session at the Cobblestone in Dublin and I couldn't understand what was said on the recording. Thanks so much. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Great flute tune don't you think?
