Hi Salt,

Thank you so much for your input regarding the copyright question on "The Old Country Church"!

You were right on, and I have contacted them to see what I need to do!

I really appreciate it as this is one of my Mom's favorite songs, as well as some good friends.

They don't know what I am working on smiler

Thanks again!

Thank you so much for the quick reply to my very first post on FOTMD! I am also a fan of SRF. That was great - your explanation of the indian scale versus the western scale being a difference of white and black keys. Perhaps that is why I have had some extra difficulty playing by ear (which is not my forte anyway!). Just knowing the melody notes for a few bhajans would be AMAZING. In the meantime, I'll definitely give your tip a try for how to use the drone string : )

Thanks Salt Springs! I recorded that with a Blue "Snowball" USB mic and ran it through Garageband on my Mac. I put a little reverb and a touch of echo.
