Hi All: I recorded 2 solo harp/vocal songs today and got them up to youtube and off to John. I too often forget how much fun I have just playing the harp solo. I played these real light on the breath. Hope you enjoy them. I am going to sit down and drink some wine now. I have the next two weeks off and man am I ready. The vacations are a great perk to being a school teacher. Walter

You're a trip Walter! I don't think I've ever heard you that jacked up before. It seemed like your circuits were overloadin',lol! I didn't get the impression you were lettin' it flow as easily as you do most of the time I always like your stuff though-- you play with alotta intensity..everybody gets their money's worth. You look good too. Is that a new hat and jacket? That jacket's cut nice.

Hi Bubba: thanks for checking it out. I often tend to play this way live when soloing on harp. I wasn't blowing very hard, but holding back the breath very hard. That, for me at least, makes for some fun stuff. You get a ton of air built up and ease out just a fraction of it. Kind of like a high pressure hose just letting a trickle out. I use alot of my martial art training in that respect. When I put those headphones on in my studio, I tend to play much more laid back I think mainly because you hear everything so intensly. I don't know. Either way, I was in such a mood yesterday :P I bought a couple of those suits for playing festivals this past summer. I did notice that on the drinking disease video, you can see my jeans on underneath the coat. The camera only would do waist up with the small space I have, so I figured why put the whole suit on, but then I kicked my knee up :D . You should enter the contest. There are some killer prizes. Take care. Walter

here is the whole suit
