Been busy practicing along with the Jeremy Cloake CD and I feel I am getting there slowly. Going to find some time to get another sound clip up so you can check out my progress...watch this space :)

I am with Kyle (so to speak),
I like the sound, particularly the end of the dhirrl.
It would be nice to hear it with the breathing at the end of each phrase too.
more like,
dhud a dhirrl ng
with a bit more accent on the dhud..
look forward to more :)
cheers, Martin

Thanks Martin for the feedback... I am really trying to concentrate on each separate sound but sometimes it starts getting 'muddy' so I have to stop and start again which is a good thing as it prevents bad habits forming! Well here it is as promised a rather shaky rendition of the dhid-da-row dhid-da-row dhirrl-lo rhythm and please excuse the rather off-pitch toot at the end! Again honest feedback please as I am finding this way of learning really useful! Cheers Jono :D

Good progress Jono. This sounds much better. Slightly too precise, but that's to be expected. I'd like to hear you in a couple of weeks once this vamp has become second nature to you and you can start working on the subtleties within the elements. Try experimenting with the pressure in your mouth/oral cavity during the dit/dhid bits to 'pop' the air column (kind of like a half-toot)!

Nice one.

Kyle

Cheers Kyle I will keep on with this one particular rhythm (as I like it) and gradually add further elements to it. When you talk about 'popping' the air column can you explain further what this means? In the meantime I'll work on my next sample and hopefully get it posted soon.All the best Jono :D

The 'popping' I refer to is a technique that produces a mini-toot like sound. It's sort of like a half-toot but not sustained.

Hi guys...been off the air for a while mainly due to technical probs with 'puter!! However I have been rigorously practicing with the Balanda CD and starting to get really comfortable with the rhythms now. Main problem is trying to record the sound as it still sounds mega distorted and like I am playing into a bucket!! I will endeavour to get it sorted as I have a rhythm I would like you to hear. Watch this space..speak soon Jono :D

Hi guys just wanted to say a big thank you to Kyle, Christian and Simon for all your help and advice you gave me at Tapeley (oh yes and you Nick as well) Already sounds better when I play so I hope to be able to progress steadily until I hit the next 'wall' . Cheers guys :)

No problem, Jono. Your playing is sounding really good these days!

It was great hanging out at good ol' Tapeley this past weekend. I had a great time seeing old buddies and meeting new, interesting folk!

Kyle

Hey Jono!

It was really good meeting you in Tapeley and I enjoyed the little practice sessions. These are always the highlights for me at the meeting.
Keep up the good work!

Cheers
Christian
