To stay with the 4th of July mood I thought I'd pick a patriotic song this month.
I can't say I hear many of our best known patriotic tunes being played when I'm at festivals and other events. That's something that we probably should change!
It's great to get the "Song of the Month" selections. Especially the slower version and the normal tempo versions as well as the sheet music.
I would , however like to hear the songs played on a psaltery rather than in a midi format. We must have a quite a few members who are accomplished players who could record the selections on their personal instruments. I've attached a copy of my version of "America the Beautiful" and you can do whatever you want to with it. I wish I was a better player but this might be the beginning of other members providing their versions also.
Keep up the good work,
Thank you so much Charlie! I would love to have all of the songs on real instruments rather than midi as well. I just don't have the time to do everything I would like to and I'm not the best player around either. Any and all versions people want to share are appreciated and encouraged!!!
I'll be adding your version to the music player on the front page too.
FYI, recently I did acquire a program and psaltery sounds from a real instrument that I can use in place of the traditional midi that I've been using and hope to be providing sound files using that in the future. It still isn't as good as a real player live though
