Carol Of The Bells

I have been trying to figure things out on this board. Here is an mp3 of my arrangement of Carol of the Bells that I hope works. Thanks for your help Bruce.

Roger, that was both intricate and beautiful. I heard some of the more difficult techniques used by several of our heroes. I was reminded of Chet's ending to "Blue Angel" and Lenny's complex chordal harmonics. It also reminded me of some of what Tommy Jones' techniques. I can tell that you put a lot of thought into putting this together, as well as utilizing techniques that most people on this board probably wouldn't be able to pull off.........oh, maybe a few pull-offs.....lol.

If this were a contest entry, you'd probably walk away with the gold.

"some of what Tommy Jones' techniques" = "some of Tommy Jones' techniques"

Roger, that was incredible! Absolutely beautiful, and what amazing fingerwork!

By the way, I notice you gave me credit above ... folks should know that I only helped with how to post the mp3, not with the beautiful music, which you arranged so nicely on your own.

I wish there were a way of rating tunes on the Board. This one would surely get 5 stars from me, Roger. It's captivating.

All my best
Bruce

Thanks for saying those nice things Bruce I appreciate it. I recorded that almost a year ago and plan on redoing it. I have worked those string squeaks out of it now.

You were a big help last night. For some reason I just could not figure out how to do the mp3's and yet it was so simple... :idea:... Ask Bruce

Thanks again

Wow! Roger, you're a spot on machine precision technique monster without sacrificing the 'spirit' in your playing. You always amaze me. Squeaks? Heck, if I got rid of all my string squeaks there wouldn't be much left. :lol:
