2 exercises on the Haka

 Played on my new Aulos Haka alto.

Definitely a better instrument than the Yamaha!

A better alto

 Bought myself a Aulos 'Haka' alto recorder. I already have an alto, the Yamaha YRS312B but it clogs constantly and is very delicate on the low notes.

This Aulos seems much better, more stable with more room for air, and it doesn't clog, so far...

Playing the EWI

 There is an exercise in the Brian Bonsor alto recorder book that was quite tricky to get to grips with, so I was  using my Carry-On EWI to practise silently.

After I'd got the piece under my fingers I thought I'd unplug the headphones and record what I was playing. I had the volume down low so as not to disturb my autistic son, who was in the next room.

Got my mandolin set up

 Had some Christmas money so I decided to take mandolin to Ron's Repairs for a set up.

As always Ron did a fantastic job and it now sounds great and is in tune!

Tongue drum #2

 The green drum gets a companion. A little 3 inch one from Amazon. These little ones are called Buddha stones. This one is made by Hluru.

Summer's End

 A piece I came up with on piano, and which I called Summer's End.
