Inspired by David Hansen's lovely multi-tracked Emma's Waltz yesterday, I decided to have a crack at it, using Garage Band, on my new iMac & this is the result:

Josefin's Waltz

I just used the system's Mic, but I suspect I could get a much better sound quality, if I could only work out how to connect my own stereo Mic to my iMac. :unsure:

By the way, I'm playing my Aeola Baritone / Treble & my Sobell Mandolin.

Cheers,
Dick

Full proper title, is Josefin's Dopvals, meaning christening waltz. You concertina sounded a bit too strident to me, Dick. :(

Yes I know Chris, but this was just my first attempt to record with Garage Band & the Mic on the iMac is, I think, mostly designed for voice.

I haven't worked out how to connect a real Mic to my iMac yet, so hopefully when I do, it'll do a better job.

I also had the Concertina track's sound level way down low.

Anyway, with a bit of luck my next effort will be a little more successful.

Cheers,
Dick

Ah-ha! I knew that I'd heard it somewhere before. I have a lovely version of this on a CD by Alastair Fraser(violin) and Natalie Haas (cello) called Fire and Grace

Here's a youtube - much overwhelmed by audience noise! http://www.youtube.c...h?v=DlvrUu0HwIo

(edited to get the cellists name right!)

Ah yes, a pair of real master musicians, those two, although I find that Cello version hard to beat. B)

Agreed, though I'm also fond of the version on Ralph Jordan's CD. It's a (deservedly) popular tune.

For the record :rolleyes:, Natalie Haas, not "McMasters", is the cellist on this recording and the youtube video.

Ooops - of course you're right .... confusion reigns, I'll correct my earlier post.
