Guitar Progess, Sorta
So, I got a license that will allow me to play El McMeen's arrangement of Jay Unger's Ashokan Farewell on my SoundClick! music page. But I've been lazy in learning it and the clock is running. (You have to renew them every year.)
I don't quite have it down yet, and my recording technique, via GarageBand is less than perfect, too, but I figured I'd post it, clams and all, to spur myself to learn and record it right. When I get a better version, I'll replace the rough version that's up now.
("Clam" is a technical term here, for a badly-hit note ...)
It's a beautiful tune. It gives me something to work toward. When I get this one, along with The Water is Wide and Dixie down, assuming I live that long, that will be a fine trio to play together.
