It can be tricky getting the right balance of volume with the human voice especially with the flute family. I think small speakers carry the flute very well but the lower tones not so much.  ???

Absolutely.  Getting a good recording and mix is as much of an art as playing or singing.  And yes different speakers have different ranges that they do best.  That is the reason professionals systems have a horn, woofer, and sub woofer.

You did a great job on it.  The only improvement I could see that needed to be made is the Ocarina should have been turned down just a little.

Right now all Karl is offering is Black, and Black with an Ivory mouth piece.   He has talked about other colors a few times, but I haven't seen anything about that in a while. We have a thread about that on here somewhere.

BTW, Welcome to the Forums and the CODA

Very nice.   I am not familiar with that tune, but I love it.

Another awesome job, you are cranking them out big time.

That is a very nice tune.  I loved the fact that  a harpsichord  was used in making it instead of a piano. That made it much more authentic.

I thought I heard a flue of some kind in my right ear was that you or the recording?

I found a stand that will hold my smart phone using a store app.  I plan on picking it up sometime Sunday afternoon.  It is supposed to be a rainy nasty day, but maybe I can brush up on my solo playing and figgure out a few songs to play. I want to do something outside, because I love playing outdoors, but I am not sure exactly where I will set up yet.

Somehow I missed this post when you made it.  I don't know what he is doing but he is an excellent whistle player.   Thanks for the post.  Maybe this bump will get someones attention that knows a lot more about it than I do.

Thanks for the encouragement.  It has been about 3 weeks since I have played, so give me a few days to get up to speed, and used to playing solo again. When you are used to playing with others you develop a different mindset than you have playing solo.

Anything I make will be simple cell phone recordings because I don't have the equipment I need to make a proper recording.

I understand the quest for perfection, and the feeling that anything else is just not acceptable. I was that way whe I first started playing publicly many years ago.  The one day during the setup time they were playing a CD a classic concert pianist (Brinkman I think was the name).  Right in the middle of his lovely performance of a very intricate piece of music he had a glaring error, he paused for about 1/2 a beat then went on  with the rest of the song.   Something like that could have been easily edited to make is sound flawless yet it was left in there.  After I heard it I realized that even the best of musicians make mistakes, and most of the time the only people that notice them are the musician.  I even asked the person who owned the CD about the mistake and she didn't even catch it.     

It is true that we should strive to improve and never be satisfied with where we are, but we also need to accept the fact that we are only human just like all musicians.

Great  job on a classic song.   Thanks for making this video. 

It looks like I am going to have some free time on my hands now thank to the corona virus.  I doubt I will have time to get my ocarina playing up to a level for making a recording, but I have been thinking of recording a few Harmonica videos with my phone.

Great job on an old well known tune.

Nice job on that tune.  That is quite the shift in weather from one day to the next.  Where I am it has been mostly rain with a day of sunshine once every week or so.

That is kind of the point of these enchanted forest videos.  They are supposed to be organic and not perfectly processed.
