You'll need an mp3 file to submit, which you upload to the ABF recital website (you can also put a link to a youtube video but you need an mp3). It opens on 1st May - a thread should appear then with all the details. Search on past recitals to get an idea of how it all works...

Yes, yes indeed. BillM, for one, usually sings - and does a super job!!!

I'd love to be able to sing and play (I can do both, just not at the same time, I don't have enough total coordination yet... I dream of it though)

I listened to my recording and (shocking!) it wasn't as good as I remembered playing it. (what a surprise) Missing notes, etc. (I played them, the keys just didn't make a noise like I told them to)

Sheesh, I swear my brain turns off while I record. (apparently it goes into panic mode! laugh )

Lucky for me I was able to record a better version today. The same amount of mistakes, just in more inconspicuous locations. laugh

I must have been in a groove because I recorded two others as well. A great recording day - I wish there were more of them like this. smokin

Wish my brain would turn off sometimes. It sure can get me into a lot of trouble. grin

I got my recording done today. yippie This at least gives me a backup if I decide to re-record. Although nerve-wracking, it's getting a little easier to play in front of the recorder.

Carl, I'm even more flummoxed now after reading your posts...looking forward to you & your "date"! confused

I know there are more than a few of us named Carl. After going to my dictionary, I am flummoxed as to which Carl your were talking to.

Sorry, griffin! blush I was referring to Strings & Wood Carl. I'm used to calling him Carl from his previous screen name.

Thanks for the clarification. I also like being referred to as griffin. From now on I am going to change my signature to griffin at PWF. That's what family members called my dad. We were both named Carl. I find honor in assuming his nick name. He was a hero to me!

The recital opens tomorrow! I'll probably post the thread sometime mid-morning, so those of you waiting around in the hopes that I'd open it up at midnight or thereabouts can pack it in. wink

I *still* haven't gotten a recording of my piece. eek

Tomorrow!! I think I'm going to do a tune I've known for a long time but have never memorized.

How's that for a decision? laugh
