Good job CMohr! You are getting the hang of this recording thing. This is a very nice selection- somewhat off the beaten path that conjures visions of warm fireplaces and comfortable surroundings. I like it a lot!

PS ...
Should be a cake walk (waddle?) for the Ducks, although the intrastate war can get out of wack (quack?) sometimes. smile

Thanks Carl! Only 40 minutes to kickoff-Ducks favored by 11! laugh

It took me an hour to figure out box.net-and I actually think my computer recorded the piano a little better than the video camera. Not sure, but it seems so-still hoping for that zoom! smile

Just found an INCREDIBLE version of Sleigh Ride on Youtube.
(I think I could learn to fly before I could ever learn to play like this!)

Enjoy!

You're probably entrenched in the game right now, CMohr, but I just wanted to say I enjoyed your "Christmas Mem'ries." I agree with Carl; this one is off the beaten track (who's the composer?), and that makes it a refreshing break from the usual radio fare.

I don't know who wrote it, but I remember a version of Christmas Memories (or Mem'ries) by Sinatra and another by Streisand. There are probably others, too.

Thanks, Monica! smile Christmas Mem'ries words by Alan & Marilyn Bergman, music by Don Costa. This song was new to me, too. We looked on youtube and found a Barbara Streisand version that was really nice.

I just got the Christmas book about 3 weeks ago-Christmas Encyclopedia arranged by Tom Roed. Alot of the songs are way too difficult for me, but I like most of the arrangements. One thing tho-it's published by Alfred-I have never had a songbook fall apart so fast. eek I'll have to get it bound.

I'm still pretty nervous recording, you can probably tell! But I forged ahead.

Oh yeah, THE DUCKS ARE GOING TO THE ROSE BOWL! We won 37-33 over the OSU Beavers! It's a great day! yippie

Elssa, I really liked your holiday videos, both the two you posted and the others on your YouTube channel that I sneaked a look at (especially "Carol of the Bells.") Your arrangements are always filled with such lush chords and pretty fills. smile

Cathy - Your Joy to the World is very cool. I really like the way you jazzed it up and threw in some very unexpected voicings. Nice.

Simple but elegant - very nicely done. Your piano's bell-like tone enhances the beauty of this performance.

BenPiano - I love the whole package (piano, guitar, ahhs, and images). I like the driving backbeat that the guitar adds. Very Creative!!

I really enjoyed watching your videos. You play with such ease and grace.
I noticed you touching the screen from time to time- are you changing the sound?

Ladypayne - Your White Christmas was very well played. I like both the arrangement and the performance very much. The tone of your piano reminds me of the old upright that one of the gangsters was playing in the Godfather Part 1 (kind of an obscure reference I guess).

Ladypayne - Here is what I was thinking of - Godfather Piano Scene. Now that I have watched it again your piano sounds much better - it has real character.

Very nice Bill! Is your video HD? How do you mix the sound, as your vocals are crystal clear. Good performance!
