Aloha everyone,

I didn't do anything, posting-wise, with this song, once I had completed it, because I wanted to play it in a recording.  Well, even though I hit a few wrong notes, and there were other trouble spots, I recorded myself playing a slightly modified version of this tune.

I used my Blue Snowball iCE USB mic (14.1 kHz, 16 bit sample rate) and Audacity to make the recording.  I had to amplify the audio with Audacity, even though the mic was pretty close to me.  I guess I'll have to play with the input volume a bit - I didn't want to get too much background noise in the recording.  Anyway, I put it on SoundCloud.  Get out your noise-canceling headphone!

I've also included the sheet music, but I took some liberties with this recording.  I tried to place a slight separation between the man's and woman's parts, so that you could more easily understand the "conversation".  Let me know what y'all think about this one.  I'm still very much working on this one and will most likely release another recording once I get it more under control.

Aloha @Fiddlerman,

 I'm glad you liked it.  I actually got one "like" on SoundCloud for this one.  I guess I'm doing OK.  I have a few more in the oven - once they've baked enough, I'll up load them as well.  I'm getting better, but still writing over my ability to play.

Nice tune. You're fiddle skills are improving all the time.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. ~Herm Albright
