Metsavendade laul

Post by Pippa » Mon May 20, 2013 6:27 pm

Well, I had a go!

Any feedback appreciated. IMO it sounds quite "harsh" - I'm not very good with rhythm on the PA yet... any tips on how to improve? I have a good sense of rhythm (I like to think...) but I think not being so familiar with the instrument interrupts it... yeah OK... I'll practice scales and arpeggios... NOT

Nice one Pippa,

I don't find it harsh (perhaps I don't quite get what you mean by harsh in this context).
The song is a good choice for the voicing you have chosen and I think it is well within your ability range.
I know what you mean by rhythm with a PA. The coordination of the bellows does tend to throw one out of kilter sometimes and that only comes with practice.

I listened last night and I enjoyed it, it was quite punchy but I wouldn't say harsh, more stirring really, and as Glenn says you picked a nice low voice for it, good stuff, the coordination will tighten itself up with a bit of practice is all. I enjoyed it.

Hi Pippa,

For this piece in F# Minor, I would practice its relative Major scale of A, and also the scale of E, particularly its 2nd degree which is the scale of.. F# minor.

I like what you're doing with the rhythm and especially the bass. It matches the spirit of the tune.

Thanks :) And thanks for the advice, I guess it really does just come with practice. I'll keep at it {}
