I'm posting this so the thread will have that neat little "d" so it can be perused in descending order.

I must admit that those bugle calls were not me. I have no recording capabilities and I have no place to post to if I did. Some were Official US Army Buglers and others were Official Civilian Buglers. But we Siblings In Brass stick together, so they are me and I am they...them...those folks. I, myself, am an Official Civilian Bugler and damned happy to be such!

56, like other multiples of 28, is a special birthday: Unless you were born before 1900, it is guaranteed to be on the same day of the week as your actual birth day.

Here's to your 84th! And may you still be keeping this house in order.

Well Lin's made me feel a little excluded here ;-) so I guess I'll have to try another waltz using the same settings. Can't seem to find this in the dt though I thought I'd given a MIDI for it at some point anyway Watercress Girl

The bum notes at the end come free! (I'll make the excuse I'm drunk...)

If it isn't here, we do have a version here with a slightly different tune to the one I attemped to play.

Call me a madman if it affirms your existence & pacifies your emotions, but I, King khandu, consider Tweed's lovely website one of the more unusual blues sites I have visited! My entourage & I give it
a high thumbs up! With regulars such as the blueslady & Rolfyboy, as well as the Bobert & BWL, it is a "never-a-dull-moment" environment which is also very informative site for blues lovers!

Having said that, I shall also say that Tweed's "Badly Recorded Blues" is very enjoyable, as evidenced by his "Joe Offer Waltz"!

My Dear Mr. Tweed,

I am greatly offended that you chose in your post above to refer to me, Chuck U. Farley, as "Fuck You Charlie"! I have been hearing that sort of thing all my life and it is no longer funny! Can I help it that my parents gave me a name that people can easily make a cheap joke of? Yes, sometimes parents can be cruel and give kids names like "Justin Case", "Dick Head" or "Rick Shaw", but reasonable adults should be beyond making childish jokes about such things.

Thank you,

Chuck U. Farley

Now don't y'all go bashing our esteemed Mayor and resident expert on all songs badly recorded. I have personally seen the likes of several of you sneaking around Tweedsberg when your forum is broke.
We Tweedizens know good music (badly recorded) when we hear it.
That is a fine birthday song of great historic significance...... Rapaire and Jeri's offerings are brilliant as well.

Jon, I just wondered if it worked! Let's face it...it's a silly song, and fun was the point. The band was me.

I think this thread was a great idea too, and I've really enjoyed it so far.

Foolestroupe, I am somewhat worried that our government now seems concerned about allowing people from other countries hearing our bugle calls. Classified documents and the standard chow hall recipe for "Shit on a Shingle," sure, but bugle calls?

OK Jeri, I felt I didn't really be wanting to coming in here and saying "yes rapaire that is good", "yes Jeri that is good" (or alternatively being someone who would just say "good" to be polite) as I felt a danger of playing a "judge" I don't want to be and saying "yes, I heard it" feels a little negative. And I'm also aware I've contributed...

In honesty mode, I will say I've listened to Tweed's original, Rapaire's trumpet piece and your "band" (who were the others with the harmony?) and have enjoyed them all.

I also think that this has been the most imaginative birthday thread I've ever seen here. I can't think of another where musical contributions have been offered - maybe there are?

    No, Khandu. I'd like to do it, but it just wouldn't look right to the public. It's an election year, and I might be drafted as a candidate. Hasn't happened yet, but I make sure I'm ready every year, just in case.

OK, my 'streaming media' is more like 'steaming media'. It's a wma instead of an MP3. Doesn't work with Mozilla or a friend's Mac, but works with MSIE. I also haven't heard anybody saying 'Jeez, Jeri, that really DOES suck!' so I don't know if anybody's heard it. I'll try to replace this with a 'better' version (like a real MP3) tomorrow.

This thread can't possibly be dead already. Just because Rap played Taps doesn't mean it's over. People, "Don't fear the Rapaire!" (Sorry - that was rather grim.)

Well, Joe, I'm older than you are and I've had to figure out how old I am since I was about 50 years younger than I am now. So, if "Taps" doesn't do it, how about this?

I called it fp as the tune was Fanny Power.

As for the sound, I find the keyboard is variable in terms of quality of "instruments". I think "musette", the voice I used for that is particularly good. That's only a "2 fingered" job BTW that's all I can do. I just play a single note melody and a bass note(s) to indicate the chord required and the keyboard does the rest for me. In that case, I was using a preset style called JzWaltz1.

Well the Joe Offer Waltz sounded good but it sounded like blues, rather that a waltz to me but there again at 4:15 am and after say 1/2 litre of rum and 2 or 3 cans of bitter, I'd not trust my judgement too far.

Anyway, I'm in a good mood and have a newish toy so I thought I'd play Mr Offer a bit of a waltz that I enjoy. I have put it here. Hope he likes it.

Ahem.

I'm not entirely sure Joe Offer is the best person to determine the BS-ness of this thread. It's a conflict of interest. One shouldn't mess with threads about one's own self. I'm also thinkin' there's more of us clones than there are Joes. Is it time for a mutiny? How much trouble WILL I get in? Perhaps I'd be better off just bitching about it.
