While I'm still working on "Take Five," I felt like recording a quick melody while I was out today, so here's a quick melody: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81JM9RPC0w0

I guess I'm supposed to keep playing it with more and more embellishments, but it's a little lame unaccompanied, at a picnic table.  So...it is what it is!

Soon, I'll be giving up this little room where I do my recording.  A family member who isn't well is moving in, and needs the room.  This means that my little "recording studio" will be closed till further notice.  It also means that I'm even more happy to be a beta tester of the OcBox.

I've cranked out a lot of videos, and had a lot of fun doing it.  I'll continue to make videos, but I expect my output will be a lot less.  And there will undoubtedly be more unaccompanied MO playing, "in the wild," since that's fairly easy to do.  Videos with backing tracks are still doable, but with more difficulty.

You sure did... and they were great! Sorry to hear the family member isn't well. Looking forward to seeing the ocarinas in the wild now.

I have a list as well.  What I do is every morning I take out 20mins & play about 7-8 songs I'm working on or already know.  I play them through once, that's my morning wake up.  Then before going to bed I take out another 20mins and practice 4 different songs on my double.  My double is the most difficult for me.  Also I always tend to overgrip the right hand and I put too much pressure on my right thumb.  Then I just practice regularly during the day, and focus on whatever song I'm feeling like I want to play or need to work on for my next video.  Depending where I am effects which ocarina I use as well.  At home, I play all my sweet potatoes.  If any family members are home, I play my Alto A, Tenor G, or Hind inline, all of which are quieter.  On the road, in my car, at work, on my lawn mower (yesterday), always in my gym bag, are my poly MOs.

Here we go with another "in the wild" video, complete with airplane noise.  Hopefully the classical music police won't show up at my house.  Apologies to all who care about fidelity to the score!

"Take Five" is still in rehearsal. I can play through it fine...except for the bit that goes: B C D D# E D# E F G. For sme reason, when I play this at tempo I stumble on the 2nd D# about half the time. Well I guess it takes as long as it takes.

I thought of another good song to try.  At least, I think it'll work well.  It's dead easy too, at least in terms of notes.  The phrasing needs some TLC.  The song is "Angie," an old Rolling Stones tune.  It's really a slow rock lament, and it seems to me that the MO will nail it.  It's on the list.

It's done!  Hooray!

Man, this one was a bear to work out!  There are still a few fumbles in there, but I'm happy with the improv, and most of the playing.  As I mentioned a while back, I don't have so much access to this room for setting up recording gear anymore.  Normally I'm okay winging it outdoors, but for this tune I needed no distractions so I could focus.  So when the painting was done, and before moving anything back in, I seized the opportunity to record this.  I really wanted to get this recorded.  I hope you enjoy it.

At some point I'll want to re-record "Take Five" in a better acoustic situation. I'll do it outside if I can find a quiet spot with no distractions. But that could take a while.

Another quick indoor take, while the house was quiet.  For Mary Poppins fans.

Here goes another jazz standard...one of the standardest jazz standards!  I only had a small window of time to record, so I resorted to my cheapie headset mic, which works surprisingly well.

I've been playing this Irish jig at red lights and other moments for weeks now--maybe months.  Today I felt like recording it.  It's in the key of D.

This would have sounded better with better recording equipment, but I had a brief window of time and just wanted to try to get it done.  It's not my usual kind of thing, but the melody fits perfectly on the MO.

This is about as close as I can get to a one-year anniversary video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4Z9e6PeTfg.  I don't know where I'm going to record when the weather gets cold again!
