This is like the one David did this year. 2019 that I got involved with but has not been finished yet. It was harder than I thought it would be. :-[

So now that I have got my basic skill level up to a decent level on the Coda. I am trying to concentrate more on the details of my playing. Like accent, flow, color, timbre and timing. Things that affect the feel of the sound and music. In other words playing with more feeling. For some people this comes more naturally than others. If it does not come naturally. I suggest listening to musicians that are known for that. The more you listen, the quicker you will pick it up. Also recording your self will reveal many problems you might not notice otherwise.
Now word of warning about playing in front of people. You can play really well by yourself and get in front of other people even if it is a recording and sound horrible. So that will get better with practice. ??? ;)

Something I want to emphasize to people is to not give up. To keep practicing and pay attention to the details. Like breath , finger placement and instrument placement. It all makes a difference. Also listen to music and musicians. Watch people play and talk to them about music and playing. Finally take Karl up on some of his challenges. I’m hoping to do some recordings soon also and hope to see some of you playing soon. Take advantage of the EDC part of the Coda.  ;) :o ??? ::) 8) ;D

Thanks Carol. It is always nice to here from someone that has got something useful out of what I write and just to know somebody has actually read some of it. ??? :o :)
I like helping people and interacting in a positive way.
I belonged to the old Mountain Ocarina forum since 2008 and had started visiting in 2007 I believe. But It was years before I actually wrote anything or interacted with anybody. I was getting to know them but they didn’t know me. After my accident I started thinking , how many people where like me and just sat on the sidelines and read everybody else’s posts. There is some amazing people around here.        Like you, and many more I hope to get to know. But I can’t get to know them if they’re just ghosting all the time.  :( ??? ::)

I didnt even consider chemical reactions! Well, if I mess up my CODA, I'll have to get another one... I'm sure Karl won't mind is buying more from him!  ;)  My 2 daughters have CODAs and they're not willing to do anything to mess theirs up so I guess it's up to me to experiment.

They seem to be fairly tuff and resistant to chemical reactions. Keep in mind that the airway path is the most sensitive and fragile part of the instrument. Like the fipple and labium. Also any thing that physically changes the hole size.   ???

I am making slow and steady progress on playing. I play the Coda more than my triple Ocarina now. I just need to learn how to relax while recording. I guess I need to practice until I don’t have to think about it.  ??? ::)

Is that what's called a fipple bend?
If you can explain, I'm curious to know what the physics are, are what caused the frequency to drop despite maintaining the same breath pressure.
Thanks =)

Yes Samuel. It is called a fipple bend by many. The way it works is by changing the air pressure which in turn changes the air speed of flow from the voicing window. Sorry it took so long to answer your question. Also some believe that part of the effect is because it also changes the angle of attack over the labium. So in a way you are bending the fipple air. Hence the name fipple bend.  ;) :)

That sounds awesome Carol. I don’t know off hand and somebody can feel free to correct me but I would think acrylic paint would work great for this. Karl could tell us if there would be a issue with this as far as warranty or chemical reactions I imagine.  ???

And the name of the song is...  drum roll, drum roll, drum roll   ??  :)

Well Carol, don’t leave us hanging as they say. Karl’s arms are going to get tired doing all that drumming.  ;D

Something else that I thought about was added surface paints and dies that are safe for people and the Coda. At first I resisted this idea as something that was sorta tacky but after thinking further about it I changed my mind. Many other musical instruments all through history have been colored this way and still are.  ???
