Living and Dying ~ with the Venerable Sloparts


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
An excellent piece by Ed and I have been practicing the harp jamming along to it .....Oh dear,I have posted this mainly for feedback if any on progress....if any ! And I apologise in advsnce if I have trodden all over Eds brillo piece.....anyway hereis my addition to "Living and Dying...me mostly from embarrasment,probably".....I have always wanted to collab on one of Ed's tunes but knowing my musical skills are not in the same league have never ventured...but I believe that i have a get out of jail free card as I am a mere beginner on the harmonica.....it's a bit like going to a concert to see a primary school recital.....(and that remark will probably get me in trouble as
well)

I was a bit
hesitant to have a go at this as a collab ....or in fact a steal,though I think Ed offered it up for a vocal...I cannot sing ....cannot play harp properly yet either ...

Cheers ,Jarvo

There was nothing
wrong with it...I just could not resist recording a jam .....tho' to be honest nerves got the better of me ...there were far more better unrecorded jams than there were takes....but aint that what they call the "observer effect". People and animals react to being watched, or observed ........anyway thanks for allowing this to happen ,Cheers Ed.You is a diamond geezer. (That's a Good Thing)

I really like the harmonica parts! Actually really liked the whole piece. Awesome job.
Jarvoid said 2570 days ago (November 8th, 2010)
Thanks for dropping
in and having a listen.Ed really did do all the hard work and I cheekily nipped in and sprinkled a bit of harmonica on to it.

Gee whiz, just when i thought it would be hard to add anything worthy of Ed's fabulous piece, here you come with that harp, sounding every bit as expert as if you'd been playing it for years! This is fantastic!

LOL Reading
your 'Description' above Chris, I'd say " Stop talking and just play". You did a really great job here on the Harmonica, fits in beautifully with no seams, regards M

Jarvoid said 2570 days ago (November 8th, 2010)
Tanks Mo, I did think
that Eds tune could stand to have a harmonica sprinkled lightly over it ,just perhaps not my harmonica....but as no-one else was offering it would have been rude not to have a go !!

great song, funaccompaniment
Good bunch of toe tapping music here, and you are not a beginner because you remembered to breathe in AND out, and so you didn't pass out at the end like I always did! Great piece of music you two!

Yes the breathing thing
I blow till everything goes gray and that reminds me to suck....
(which is an open invitation to be insulted right there)

Bloody good harp jam Chris
and you picked a brillo piece to jam with, as you say. So, now that you've used the get-out-of-jail-free card, what will you do?

It was a no-brainer really...
it did not need a harmonica part but it was such a temtation to jam over it that it became clear to me it would quite happily accomodate one .....so it got one !!

Thanks Len
