12 Days of Christmas, Day 2.

Ok, it’s not Carol of the Bells, and it’s not Wexford Carol… It’s just something I’ve been playing with and wanted to record before I forgot the interesting chordy things I was doing at the beginning.  I know the vocals aren’t the greatest, and the piano needs a visit from the tuner.  Not much has changed in either of those departments since this blog began two Christmases ago.  As it was when I started blogging, I’m still uploading raw, only maybe slightly practiced bits of ideas and arrangements.  Most importantly, not second-guessing myself (too much), and just letting it be a record of my days.  It’s been really great to look back on all the posts and marvel at the diversity of tracks and videos presented here.  I wish I’d started doing this long ago!  And a note to myself… I need to do some research and looking to find an affordable recording device to recommend to all my students.  It’s a big missing piece in all my teaching and musical meandering.  Not enough people out there documenting their musical worlds!

    Hi Cristie. There are lots of choices in inexpensive recording options. The one I use all the time for jam sessions and for recording my son’s college concerts, etc. is the Zoom H2. Most places sell it for about $179 now and it records to an SD card in multiple .wav or .mp3 sample rates. Specs here:

    I recently recorded my son’s fraternity Musicale with it, if you want to hear samples. I posted them for some of his frat brothers to hear. We were sitting in the back of the auditorium when I recorded these. I did amplify the signal slightly in Audacity after the recording, and cut them into separate songs, but that is all. You can hear them here:

    Thanks for your posts, and your music.
