I just
knew you'd have to open that bottle of plonk before the party LOL... Reminds me of a terrific Female Pianist I knew, who would start to play out of tune whenever the audience began to talk, then when they took notice she'd smile sweetly and drift back in tune LOL. This is a great rendition, cheers M

YES! Takes me right back...
...to Christmas at Wood & Strings Music Center...The celebrated, the legendary Mark Stunkel rendition of "Rudolph in Two Keys Simultaneously"...

All I need now is a stale Danish and some hot cider that's been sitting in a hot pot for six hours...

Thanks for
reminding me about this Ed.Lots of people would have missed an important musical experience had you not mentioned it in my last song comments.I've become so inspired that I am now working on a version of "Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer" for orchestra with jaw harp soloist.

Sounds a bit more like....
"Rudolph's Acid Trip". Maybe it's time for a new Holiday-Comedy genre here. The time has come!

Definitely not your run of the mill version of "Rudolph".

guitapick said 4023 days ago (December 11th, 2007)
Reminds me...
...of this steady gig I had at a big restaurant with no sound system. I was too broke to afford an amp. But I'd get up there with my nylon string and "play with a flourish". Good practice time. When I'd get bored, I'd purposely play a fret up, keeping all the same fingerings, complete with open strings.

But all with a flourish...to resounding applause at the end of each and every piece.

Yes...Santa will be proud of this, Mark.

LOL...thanks for the gift, man.

it's not a weird tuning.I just messed around and figured out a bizarre bass line.My 9 year old thinks it's hilarious!

I believe the young 'uns would
say this was "off the hook" (or is that off the wall...?) Either way, it made me smile. I love the screenshots from the TV special - a cultural phenomenon I was not familiar with growing up in Ireland. But as a freshly-minted American I consider it my duty to watch every year (with my 5 year-old) and it cracks me up every time. Nice one. Peace.

Yes Mark
indeed.. I also love to explore alternate tunings... and how long have you been playing fretless guitar... these and other comments that I could apply to this post...

but the funny thing is... I can still hear your technical exellence through all of that...

and this comes the closest to capturing my particular Christmas spirit... my favorite pagan holiday :)

Well
it's not an alternate tuning,but my frets are getting pretty worn out so I may be playing fretless soon.I'm glad you enjoyed this little joke!

Man, that was funny. Felt like I woke up in the middle of the night, to find myself back 50 christmases, stumbling in the dark to see if I got any presents under the tree.
Or after one has had as many drinks as this lady:

Ives
Charles Ives would have been pleased! A very different kind of track. It's so wrong, it's right!

I'm trying to figure out if you accomplished the two-keys effect by actually playing those wrong notes, or if you de-tuned the bottom three strings of your guitar. Either way, it's very wrong-right.

Ibstrat said 4018 days ago (December 16th, 2007)
Wrong
I'm a big Charles Ives fan-I love his 2nd Symphony which ends on a ridiculous dissonant chord.
I didn't retune the strings but I probably should have...It would have been easier to play!

Another one I missed?
I hate it when I'm playing guitar and someone says, "dude, your axe is like TOTALLY out of tune!"

This is patently ridiculous, and so I say, "Dude, that's simply not true because I had both my axe and my machete tuned (or sharpened; whatever) by one of the custodians at the guitar shop where I bought it in 1973, so, unless that guy didn't tune it properly, I'd say your sense of intonation is lacking, frankly!"

And now I see people making comments in a similar vein about your fine rendition of a Christmas Classic, which just shows how little people around here know, eh? If I don't miss my guess, you are playing the melody in Modern Equal Temperament (A=440, or 442 for the faster bits), and the accompaniment in Meantone Temperaent (A=415), which is exactly as Bach would have done it when he performed this work.

Lovely!
