  1. Thank you George and Erik☺️. Perhaps this way better David: https://youtu.be/20lTChSezHA
  2. After much enjoying the version for mandolin, guitar and banjo recorded by Chris Jones, I tried this variation over the variation over... https://www.instagram.com/p/CPvO5DBqHaV/?utm_medium=copy_link
  3. I like to play the 3rd interval on RH. Also the 4rd interval with one finger...and if I have an inspired day I manage to catch the 1-5-8 with one finger. As Erik says, I like also to use the overlap on LH to create sort of bouncing effect when playing the melody.
  4. I found that somehow charming Randy. Thank you for sharing!!😊 It is an example of that is said: "..if anyone of us could write our Life story...." ...not all people could Tell about meeting J... though😃 ( spoiler avoided)
  5. I also use a Zoom recorder, the Zoom H1 handy recorder. The quaility of this recorder always surprises me. An example is here. This time I possitioned the recorder a bit oddly...🤭 : Fixed on the ceiling lamp ( aprox 1.20 over mi head and about 1m apart. With that I tried with Sort of a more "ambient" recording. (Ah... No further sound edition, with exception of using Davinci Resolve to compress audio to IG requirements)
  6. Wonderful concert Félix! Thanks for sharing. Happy new year for you all! Bicos
  7. WoW, congratulations!! Such a Christmas gift!!!☺️. I wish you enjoy that beauty. Isra
  8. Thank you George! Looking forward to see more videos showing your wonderful playing😊
  9. Thank you very much Geoff, Erik and Didie! My strap system design was not initially focused to play stand up. However, I find playing stand up very funny some times....so I regret I didn't study this question harder before, as perhaps I could have got with a more proper solution. I see playing stand up requires to me certain specific skills to maintain stability and good position of the hand relative to the keyboard, and I am still dealing with that.
  10. Thank you Erik! Yes, I enjoyed those discussions a lot. Also other valuable opinions from Cnet members. I received, finally, very usefull recommendations from Göran Rahm. I appreciate a lot all your ideas. Muchas gracias!!😊. The " bump" side in the hand rest had ergonomical purposes, in order to favour arching my hand the way I considered necessary whiles allowing the pinkies to cover the keyboard range. The bumpy side resulted perfectly OK for me, but the handrest design failed in the Pinky side... As can be seen in the videos, I don't use to rest the pinky end of the palm over the hand rest, due to the resulting shape of the hand bar. Fortunately, I have found resting my hand on the middle área of the palm base, approx, does result to me natural, confortable and practical enough. Buttons are 6 mm wide, due to limitations in glass sizes. After playing the Stagi, I think a little larger buttons are more confortable to me. However, I was affraid wider buttons -whiles maintaining same Hayden spacement- could difficult to play triplets as I show in the video. By the way, I am very happy with these 6mm glass buttons (thank you Alex!!👌)
  11. Hello! Here can be found a short example showing the side view of my Holden Hayden duet. Kind regards Isra
  12. Lovely Didie! The repetitive bass line in the middle part does sound wonderfully intriguing to me.
  13. Ooh. I didn't read this thread in due time. However, Perhaps due time is just now to me. What a charming and evocative things Don!. Thanks for sharing ☺️
  14. Congratulations for both your playing and the enhancements George!!. I also found nicely usefull, for the fingerind advantage you did mention, the big Stagi buttons. I have one question about: does that new butons set up difficult to play triplets on same note? (due to the risk of touching the neighbour button)
  15. My Holden Hayden. Detailed info can be found in Alex's blog. Every time I play I unconsciously think how gratefull I do feel to @inventor for developping the Hayden system. Well It is due time to say thank you Mr Hayden for that wonderful gift🙂. I enjoy that sooo much!! Isra
  16. Hello! I managed to make a decent recording with my new Holden Hayden. I used a Zoom H1 handy recorder at the highest recording quality it includes. I compressed the file to match both IG and youtube requirements by using Davinci Resolve software. I think the sound, even compressed, does represent quite well the sounding of this instrument. The adaption from the Stagi Hayden keyboard took me more time than expected😅. The use of the bellows is also way different between both instruments. This set can be found in the last CD recorded by my friend and excellent musician José Climent (“Luciérnagas (Pirilampos)”. The first tune was composed by J. Climent, inspired in sort of waltz/bourree rhytms; the second one is a "pasacalles" rhytm, as played in Aliste region (Zamora, Spain). This area is very rich in wonderful traditional music, that is not well known even in Spain. The set is very good to me for developping several skills such as practicing unysonous phrasing, alternating phrasing/chording between both hands as well as modulation of dinamics and rhytms. Kind regards Isra
  17. Nice instrument and wonderful Tiersenn's cover.? Thank you for sharing.
