The difference 1 day can make: Captain O'Kane
« on: March 24, 2020, 06:52:43 pm »
The difference one day can make.  One day in a t-shirt; the next in the snow.   

I first recorded this song, Captain O’Kane, on a whim.  After a trail run, I was playing Coda as dusk eased into dark.  The Spring peepers (little frogs) sounded so nice that I had to join in, so I knelt in front of a tree, propped my phone against it, and hit record.  The next day, when a refreshing snow took us by surprise, I decided to record it again to show the difference a single day can make.

Today's problems may look a lot different tomorrow!

The tune is attributed to Irish composer Turlough O'Carolan (1670-1738).

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.

Sounds so good! It's so much simpler to record outdoors with a phone, and not have walls creating word hot and cold pitches.
