Sounds really fine. Mic also great.
Kim - Sounds great. And fanny Power is a favorite of mine. Nice job! :)
Thanks for watching and commenting, friends! I'm excited about the new mic and am looking forward to experimenting more with it.
Sounds wonderful, great playing!
So pretty, Kim. And I'm really glad for your new microphone because your play is such a treat and now I can hear it more clearly.
Kim, this is lovely and the sound quality on your microphone is excellent. I'm looking forward to hearing and seeing more from you . You make that finger work look so effortless. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks, Garry! It's actually an all Walnut dulcimer. The lighting sort of makes it look like cherry, though. :-)
Thanks, Wayne and Rob! Yes, Rob, I agree that it takes a while to get the feel for O'Carolan pieces. On this particular piece, I really had to focus on getting the timing right (it's still a little off) and as a result I tended to neglect putting "feeling" in my piece. Oh, well. I guess that's what practice is for. I'm enjoying the new mic, Wayne.The only thing I miss about my old micis that the hissing sound muddled my mistakes. Now they're plain and clear for all to hear!
Wow, Kim, you can't go wrong with O'Carolan and neither did you go wrong with that new microphone! As for the "polish" of the playing. I may be wrong, but I think it takes months to get the "feel" of an O'Carolan piece, particularly since most of the music I use for his works has just a melody line. You're doing great with it! Nice to hear you again.
Thanks, everybody! I haven't gotten around to messing much with the Audactity program, but at least the horrible hissing sound is gone with this mic. Now I just need to work on more songs! My poor dulcimer has been neglected lately. I've been waaaay too busy.
Yes, Kimberly, that is much better. No hiss clouding your playing. You sound great.
That's a MUCH better mic! Nicely done!
