Splendid indeed!

Are you using a possum board or does that Blue Lion have a false back?

Hi Marion, I loved "The Splendid Schilling". It had a lightness and lilt to it that was enjoyable.

I'll bet you could sing it with a few simple chords like I did on my video.Smile.gif

thanks James glad you liked it. Mark gilston has a video of it here but if goes by a different title 'three seas captains' but he explains it appears in Playfords as the splendid shilling. it is an old english country dance tune. You can hear they are same tune but if you check out Mark's version its really interesting to hear the two totally different interpretations.Marion

That's beautiful, Marion: the tune, the instrument and your playing. Keep them coming.

thanks mary. I plugged the Q2 into my imac which put the icon up on the screen. i then opened garage band double clicked the clip i wnted on the q2 and dragged n dropped the clip i wanted into garage band. I have only done it once and that with christophers supervision. i have only had the imac for a few weeks and never used film or sound editing software. I have been using windows based computers since I cant rmember when (first used a desktop computer in 1980). we also fiddled around with imovie to cut the bit at the beginning where i am getting up to switch off and then sitting down again. all fascinating stuff. next time i do it i will notate the process and send it to you. but if you in 'windows' it might be quite different?marion

thanks guys - had a spot of bother with the sound - it was too quiet when i listened to it on replay so christopher (my son) showed me how to to use garage band and turn the volume up! not sure what happened there but this recording and editing film stuff is going to be quite a steep learning curve i think..........:0)Marion
