Today has actually been spent "working" and beginning to familiarize myself with the MacBook Pro. As part of my experimentation, I worked with basic recording in Garage Band. I've been learning about recording, saving and exporting in different formats, podcasting, etc. In addition, I'm flat out celebrating the experience by sharing a tune called Stool of Repentance. Enjoy!
This tune was composed by William Dixon, circa 1734. I first heard this tune played by Jim McGillvray, during a summer workshop with Donald Lindsay. I feel a very strong identity with this tune and I feel like I'm at fireside with William Dixon each time I play it.
On this recording, I am playing my new Scottish Smallpipe, made by John Walsh. This smallpipe comes with both A and D chanters and has adjustable drones. For information on this pipe, see http://www.hotpipes.com/walsh.html .
This recording was made on April 12, 2008 as I experimented with iTunes on my new MacBook Pro.For more information about tune, scroll to Stool of Repentance at (more info.).
