My First Violin

Santa brought me my first violin this Christmas.  I was completely surprised....Just kidding. ;)On the day it arrived I had to restring it because the G string slipped out of the fine tuner.  On day 2 I broke the E string and needed to restring it.  After rubbing rosin on the bow I was surprised it was still slippery. I soon found out that I needed to scratch that rosin cake.  The first time I tuned it took about 20 minutes and I suspect it was half tuned.  I was afraid to brake the E string…See More

Recording my first maracas sample, after much frustration and anticipation

Posted on April 24, 2011 at 3:00pm 2 Comments

Early this month for my birthday I received a lovely condenser microphone, an audiogram and a bouquet of wires XLR, speaker, adaptors, two Y's and a female coupler.  Actually I ordered the microphone first, but ordered the XLR cable later because I am such a newbie this is my first condenser microphone and I didn't know what wire to purchase.  There was a lot of waiting after I ordered all the wires because my town doesn't have a radioshack.   The wires came in 6 shipments! That is a lot of…

Hi Ann,

I enjoyed viewing your page-very creative!!!!  Yes, I do play several instruments.  I never became a competent vina player, but could get around a bit.  As for the other instruments well, that is a different story.  Have you ever written anything for the harp?

Hi Ann! Thanks for the kind words on Capes & Cowls. I'm glad you enjoyed it...

Thanks for the encouragement Ann. BTW, I found I could not upload an MP3 to the music player here, if I saved the file with a VARIABLE bit-rate. It has to be a constant bit-rate MP3.
