You live in a nixce place, LP . . . I love those runs you do, it punctuates and lubricates at the same time giving a good atmosphere. And - temperatures in Summer?
Roughly anywhere from the 50s to the 70s F or 10C to 23c for all of you metric users. The highest temperature it got last summer was about 75F. Strangely enough, it felt really hot.. like 80s or 90s.. Really weird feeling.

I thought Winter was going to be dark and gloomy myself when I first moved up here. And the months of Nov and especially Dec, there are some days where you only see about 4 or 5 hrs of daylight. The thing is, when it is really clear up in Alaska during the winter time, the temperatures drop considerably.. Usually down below zero anywhere from 0F and below. The coldest it got this winter was -30F. There were a couple of weeks it was -20F. The past month has been pretty good temperatures. About 20F or so all of Feb. All of the sunny pictures you saw in the video.. it was insanely cold lol.

Just plain old Windows Movie maker.
Weiyan: That's a very nice arrangement. Very beautiful. Inlanding: That sounds really good. A very pretty piece. peterws: I always love listening to this piece. Well done. SwissMS: That's nice blue piece. Good work on this one. Elssa: Very nice work. It's sound very beautiful. Nice and smooth.
Inlanding - normally I'm not a big Einaudi fan but you bring an intimacy to this piece that is very appealing. I have pretty much liked everything you have posted here in the ABF. You have such a wonderful, warm style.
I was inspired by Elssa's submission last month of If I Loved You from Carousel to try a version of this great song. I figured I might as well add my other favorite song from the musical and do a medley of If I Loved You and You'll Never Walk Alone.
I thought I'd give you poor folks a rest from my original tunes.
You know, I invariably end up posting a different song to the one I was intending. I struggle with something for a while and then turn to another song for relief. As I did with this one. (Though I will come back to what I was working on). I've always loved the song and the haunting nature of the melody and lyrics. I was also pleased to work out some piano chords as an alternative to the finger picked guitar part - but because the song was clearly so powerfully personal to John Lennon I felt like I was 'trespassing' and just kind of stopped where I was. But I figured I'd post it anyway (it's short).
Fine entertainment coming from the bar this month which I've come to expect.
Great Einaudi piece Glen. I'd never heard this before. It is very nice. Great job with it.
Noticeable improvement each time I hear you Weiyan. Nicer recordings these days too. Good job.
The joy is really well done Peter. Working on this one myself and we've been chatting about it in the Sonata analysis thread. I was thinking of you actually when I started with it and figured it would be right up your alley. Thanks for sharing it.
Fabulous singing Bill and Newman. It is always a nice treat to hear your singing performances. Both, very good and enjoyable listens.
ALL ... are SWonderful (fabulous tune) and I'm enjoying very much.
I've not had much to contribute of late. But always a keen follower. With that said though, I just received a new piano yesterday and of course, I'm busting to try it. It still needs tuning (noticeable) and that will be in two weeks.
My excuse for this one, is it is just a sound test. I didn't work much on the recording of it and a few rough areas. It's an easy Bossa not demanding perfection, so there isn't any. But, should suffice for getting a sense of the new machine.
