Another movie - Round the World

Another video cast this week. I don't think it's going through onto iTunes, er, I guess that's a minus point for Youtubing. I am in the process of setting up a superdooper server at home. Well, I say sooperdooper, it'll be slow and flakey, but it'll be mine, woo hoo! As soon as I have that better sorted I'll re-publish the movies but as proper vodcasts. In the meantime, here is the tune Round the World (from the album ThumbTwiddling). The dots for the tune are Here!

Hope you enjoyed the movie! Let me know what you thought. The soundtrack and pictures went slightly out of synch and I didn't discover that until this morning as I uploaded it. Sigh, I'll try harder next time. It was adding the titles that through them out, but I thought I'd fixed it! Anyway, thanks for watching!

Hello Vicki,
I think these podcasts you have been doing are fantastic. I think it is very helpful to have the tune broken up. This is a method of learning by ear I was comfortable with and was used by older fiddlers I used to play with.
Keep up your great work.

Hi Vicki,
I just stumbled onto your blog, I subscribed to your feed. I'm not a piper but I do play whistle and guitar and I've been considering getting a set of practice pipes. I'm an old man on a fixed income so even a set of small pipes are a budget buster. I also considered building a set using instructions from a site I found on line but it seems a little too technical for my abilities. I'm enjoying your podcasts, I've been able to learn the guitar chords and improvised whistle parts for a few of your tunes. I live in a small town in Louisiana and the only piper in town died a few years ago and the only other whistle player in town is a Native American flute maker but that music is not really my thing. It's nice to find a place on line where I can learn more of this kind of music. I love this tune, I had never heard it before.
