Thank you ubizmo, it's a much more ambitious goal than I would usually attempt and it's really been very rewarding. It's a terrific book!

 Here are 10 for today, from the neglected 3rd column....

I realize you all have the book and know there are not tempos given for most of the songs but still I feel the need to add my disclaimer here... I am just doing them the way it feels right at the time or as I am able...- so.. there... I feel better now. Cheesy

Thank you Nephiel.  Smiley

Sorry Ya'll I've missed two weeks! I almost didn't even realize it because I've been so mired in my life lately. Been both very busy and a bit rough, but, this too shall pass. Haven't even had a chance to get on here at all... Ah well, here's an entry in my Celtic account because I am still working at the goal albeit a lot more slowly right now.

Another valiant effort - but is the strain starting to show ? Wink

You've managed to link "078 The Cutty Wren" to "#77 The Curragh of Kildare" ... just the link is wrong, the file is on the server at http://dl.dropbox.com/u/54309846/300%20Celtic%20Folksongs/78.%20The%20Cutty%20Wren.mp3

Girl you are amazing. You wear me out just trying to listen to the stuff you post.  I do have a question though, is their a index page to all of your songs?   I don't know anything about DLdropbox.

Thanks Kypfer! I fixed it in the original message too. Sorry y'all  Embarrassed

 Strain....mmmm... perhaps, but I think it has more to do with not enough ocarina therapy at the moment!

Index page... maybe- but...ummm... unless someone spells it out for me I wouldn't know. I'm really none to good at the whole computer thing....
If you download them into your ipod they all come up neat as you please alphabetical and numerical, this I do know. Probably not terribly helpful, sorry Harp Player Undecided

once the job is finished it'll be the work of a few minutes to generate an html page with all the links in one place (and in order), should there be a demand ... else simply copy and paste all the links in these postings to a local document Wink

My eyes are not on a pod.  Grin


I have a little rule about electronics.  I never buy anything with an i before the name.

I didn't know if dldropbox had a index page that was automatically generated or not.  I guess no by your response.

Thanks again Kypfer, although
I think for my part I'll just leave it as it is, (perhaps the strain is starting to show!)

Harp Player sorry, "MP3 player of choice"  works just as well.  Wink

Note- I redid #63. Childgrove.  Was playing through it the other day and noticed I was playing it wrong and found the recording was wrong too so, well, there ya go. Roll Eyes

It's replaced on it's original page as well. Sorry about that.

Thank you Prairie Wolf! And I don't think I can express how good it is to hear you are enjoying them.   Smiley


I'm pretty sure that no one really knows what this process has meant to me.

 I was very excited to get the book because I was so inspired by the give aways, and Karls recordings. I felt I had already learned so much just working those out and learning them.  Then when my copy of 300 Celtic folktunes arrived I opened it up and thought... "Oh man, I'll never be able to play these without hearing them"... 

See, I had been a vocal performance major, I had taken piano, guitar, theory, not to mention a zillion voice lessons; still I absolutely believed I couldn't read music. Even my joy, years ago, playing the recorder didn't take me far enough to get past this block...

My fervent hope is that no one else will give up before they get to the point of believing they can read music for themselves. It has taken me 39 years to finally understand that I can.

The notes were still foreign, so very unintelligible to me...  I am grateful for the opportunity to post them as it has kept me at it when I would likely have given up for myself, but having made it a goal to do it "out loud" I just could not quit.

After I found the few songs that I was familiar with I was again afraid that there was no way I would succeed.  I mean I was convinced I could not ever learn to really read music.

 I looked up songs on youtube for a while and played ones I could find, then very fortunately for me, one time when I was looking I just couldn't seem to find recordings of any of the songs I wanted to try.... That was the magic moment when I realized; I didn't want to have to depend on anyone else so I could just play a song. I had allowed my whole life to be altered by never conquering this fear I had of written notes.  I got kinda aggravated. I decided not to even look them up anymore and just hash them out.

I started playing the MO in October, I have to count that as the starting point because I started trying to learn the posted celtic songs right away which is a little tricky because what Karl plays isn't as written and I know it's downright hard for some folks.  Then I started playing from the book in December, made my plan in January...
So, here we are almost 9 months later- only 9 months later.... in the last 2 days I have learned 25 songs well enough for me to record them and be okay with posting them.  Whaa?!!  Me.  Me?   I was capable of doing that.... ?

I can't even describe to you the joy, the feeling of ability, the huge breakthrough in my self esteem that is the result of this process.  Am I a phenomenal sight reader? No.  Am I a fabulous ocarinist, no.
But I am absolutely transformed.  Thank you Mountain Ocarinas.

Thank you! Thank you for sharing that experience and about your struggle and fears and how you overcame the challenge! Your journey is inspirational for me and it gives me strength to tackle my own doubts and strive to overcome my self imposed roadblocks.

Thanks for posting your story.  That definitely gave me a kick in the pants as well.   Even though I have been playing the harmonica for 15 years, and got to where I could tab stuff out for them very quickly, before I learned to play by ear.  I still am not much of one for reading music.   I can read the pitch just fine.  It is getting the rhythm right when I am not familiar with the song that has been a big hold up to me.   I am definitely going to start working on that now that I have got back to playing every day like I should.  I guess that is why I love making music so much. No matter where you are on your journey their is always something else to learn and a new challenge.  You also have the added bonus of being able to share your talent with others to brighten their day.
