Spelling error aside, that is actually... way better than I expected.
 
2012-04-29 12:18:37 AM
Wow. Beautiful!
 
2012-04-29 12:39:08 AM
Well done!

For those of you scoring along at home

Trombones > Accordions

(for this round at least)
 
2012-04-29 03:56:40 AM
not bad but ... I read that as Tamborine and was a little disappointed.
 
2012-04-29 05:25:17 AM
YES
 
2012-04-29 06:39:45 AM
heard this done with french horns too
 
2012-04-29 06:42:10 AM
Come for the toccata, stay for the fugue.

/I was impressed

I got a Costa Rican Trombone once. I had to pay the guy $200 and the smell didn't leave my carpet for a week. Never again.
 
2012-04-29 07:46:40 AM
wow... that was REALLY good!

Next we will bring you a Jamaican clarinet and rumba band playing Nazareth's most recognizable tune, Hair of the Dog.

EatCritAndDie: 240p, we meet again!


What I was thinking. I gave up after 20 seconds because of the audio flutter. They're talented. The video was complete sh*t.
 
2012-04-29 10:54:17 AM
We did this song in college. My favorite tune I've ever performed.
 
2012-04-29 11:19:27 AM
I've been thinking about getting a pBone and getting back into playing... just haven't made the jump yet.
 
2012-04-29 11:24:50 AM
Huh. I would have thought either "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" or the Brandenburg Concerto #2 would be his most recognizable tune.

The Messiah

is Handel's "ditty."

I just started playing again after a 10 year break. I just couldn't turn down the offer of playing in a 14 piece 70's funk/R&B band. (new window)

Bach's organ... Men blowing horns. There's a dirty joke in here somewhere.
 
2012-04-29 01:57:33 PM
I had to take trombone in grade 8 music. I was a wee lass and had very short arms back then. It was not fun. I swear: all the pretty, skinny girls got clarinet and flute, and all the fat pudgy ones (like me) got trombones and baritones... Thanks alot, teach.

I played one of those this past summer (they had a booth at DCI worlds) when they were first coming out. Fun to play and certainly not a toy, but not sure where it would fit in for some gigs. HS or college marching/pep band? Absolutely. People getting together to play for fun, or maybe in a community band of some kind? Maybe. Small horn section in a band at a paying gig? Don't think so.

I don't have firsthand experience, but from what I've heard they're good for just about everything except for fitting in with a section. Chances are, though, I'll always be playing alone, or as part of a band with only one bone. And given the pricepoint I can't get anything cheaper to learn on that won't be a POS.

The degree to which the performance is great is exceeded only by the horribleness of the audio quality. Extreme compression is understandable, massive clipping is not, but It's from Costa Rica so maybe it was recorded by a dinosaur.

Sounds like it was recorded on on of these:

I like to think they each have a sheet of music with 4 different colors of highlights.
 
2012-04-29 08:27:58 PM
You gotta admit, they seemed a bit rusty.

Yeah, the audio was compressed in old MP3. I would guess that the clipping if from the mic or pre-amp on the recording side being driven too hard. Brass is the third loudest instrument type.

\next two are percussion then choir

Every time I hear Toccata & Fugue, I immediately think "Two Warps To Neptune." It's probably been 25 years since I last saw a Gyruss machine, but I can't help it.

There were only two arcade games I was ever really, really good at: Tempest and Gyruss. I'd kill to play the authentic things again.

/just noticed: my two favorite games involved moving around the outside of a "tube". Hm.
 
2012-04-30 01:27:00 AM
And I'll re-raise you Toccata and Fuge in Dm (BWV 565) on a Russian byan -- solo.

Why the hell is Fantasia going through my head right now!?

/great performance though, my insanity aside
 
2012-04-30 07:27:09 AM
The one on the right has a really great tone. The one second from the right was crackin me up how he plays out of the side of his mouth.
 
2012-04-30 07:59:52 AM
I am rarely impressed ...this is one of those rare times.

that was awesome.

I commend you at your skills at Tempest. That was quite a game. If I could have one game, though, I would have to go for Joust.

A friend of mine has a MAME box. It's a gutted out old arcade game with computer parts inside and plays about 50-100 games. The inside parts are butt-simple. The screen is literally an old PC monitor on its side. The casing hasn't even been taken off! Apparently these things aren't really all that expensive either.

Tempest of course will take much finer tuned controls. Don't know how to pull that one off.
