Just dropping by to say hello. Have one "shale" of a day. Also, there some new profile questions. Check those out by clicking HERE. We are also coming up on our 10,000th member. Be sure to celebrate with me. Click HERE for more about that.
I love it also... Thank you. Sorry for the late delay. Homework was due tonight and I needed to turn it in. Looks like you are sleeping. I guess I better do the same. Raining cats and dogs in Houston, Texas. Have a great night...
Music has always been a means for me to unwind and an outlet for just plain fun. My mother teaches piano and voice ... and my son has an engineering degree along with a music degree (emphasis in piano performance).
I need to find a way to make more time for it.
I wonder how we talked for > an hour and didn't get around to music...funny, huh?
It was a pleasure meeting you and your husband this afternoon. The eating meeting was a lot of fun and I enjoyed getting to put faces with names. I also have enjoyed the cello music that you posted here. I am a very part-time musician, that is, now I rarely have &/or make time for it. But I did play acoustic guitar and sing around S'port and Monroe for about 6 years. This has now been 20 years ago. Now I just occasionally play for church. Thanks for an enjoyable afternoon among new-found friends.
You really draw a well controlled tone from the cello. Your intonation is excellent and the way you leave the phrase is very subtle. That's a nice sounding instrument.
The little I've been able to record in my lifetime is represented somewhat at Studioviols on Soundclick. There's one tune there with a small cello ensemble, (multi tracking), and some other stuff with violin and viola. It's time to gather all the tracks from far and wide to entertain the troops on Pickens Plan. I'm building the Musicians and Performers for a Better Future group on the Pickens Plan and it's reaching for 40 members at this time. It sure would be nice to have another orchestral string player in the group of your quality. I hope you will drop by and check out the group. Thanks for sharing your music!
I'm floored, I have so much to say to those that play one and especially more than one of the primary orchestral stringed instruments, the viols. Cool!
I'm still reconstructing social networks to fit me into the plan better, I'll add you as a friend and keep you up to date on my music widgetry. I'm the admin of the Musicians Group over on Pickens Plan. ning never ceases to amaze me in it's ability to network.
As exciting as this is, we know that we have a responsibility to do this thing correctly. After all, we want the farm to remain a place where the family can gather for another 80 years and beyond. This site was born out of these desires. Before we started this site, googling "shale' brought up little information. Certainly nothing that was useful as we negotiated a lease. Read More
