My torna a surriento

Post by fjsys » Sun Jul 14, 2013 4:13 am

So i just started with soundcloud and am still not sure entirely what I am doing with it. Here is one of my favorite songs to play recorded with my ipad's internal mic.

Nice one Ben.
I love this piece. My mother used to sing it and I had some pre historic sheet music of it somewhere.
I've never been to Sorento, but if it's as nice as that sone it should be on my agenda.

Ciao.

By the way, the recording quality isn't half bad. Amazing what an ipad can do.

in my bucket short list 8-) {}

nice one fj - it would be good for my experience and would like to work on bass melodies where you are holding chords ( i
think that was what you were doing) rather than stabbing away tango , waltz fashion (which i enjoy) as that is a weakness of mine

Nicely played ...and that reminds me that I should be in the shed prackyacktissing.............some real nice control and shaping of notes...I too like the held basses....I am a bassoholic where the accordion is concerned.

Thanks

I am fairly impressed at the ipad mic. I needs to be a little further from the mic with the elkavox in the future, but that is part of the fun of learning how to record.

As to the technique. The way that I have been taught for the bass of waltzes is to hold the bass through the measure and play the chords on top of the bass. It helps to smooth out the song.

i think I may have learned something now but still a bit unsure

are we saying that for this waltz (and others maybe)instead of um pa pa all the time we can um+pah ie hold down um+pah key at the same time :?:

Hold down the um for the measure and play the pa pa while holding the um.
Or look at it as the um gets 3 counts and the pa goes rest pa pa giving two "voices" to the bass measure.

I use to play it a lot, but played it so often that I flogged it to death.

Ben, this is one of my favorite tunes, and you did a nice job with it. Your accordion is a powerhouse. Keep up the good work.
