Mahalo Jesse,

For offering to put this all together!

(and thanks for the help last year too!)

Count me in for one submission at least.

Cynthia will probably want to submit one for herself too.

I also am a member of a trio now - Na La'au Ki'eki'e.
(the tall trees)

Na La'au Ki'eki'e would also like to submit one as well.
(I think... A third individual is involved here)

Three Months would be barely enough time, but I think we
can just make it.

(I have two other multi-disc CD projects going on right now
AND I have also have a day job where they like you to work
10 hours an day and some weekends too!)

Thanks Lawrence, Cynthia, Jean and others.
I would encourage anyone who can play through a song to try and get it recorded to put down some tracks and send it to me via email or snail mail. You won't regret it.

Jesse, -
You sure you want to put your address in a public forum --
most people could get to you through your link.

My advice, having done the first compilation.
1) Keep it simple
2) Set your parameters and limits and keep to them. You are providing a great service. You will probably not be able to please everyone. This will take a lot of work, so decide what you're willing to do, and keep to it.
3) Are you sure $5.00 will cover your costs for materials and postage? Also - how many disks are you willing to duplicate yourself? Will you need other TP members to help duplicate or will you use a service -- factor in costs. --- (Figure out how much 2 or 3 disks will cost to mail, how much the mailer will cost - Using envelopes, you'll probably have to go with a CD box as opposed to padded envelope. -- cost of disks, labels, envelopes, etc. - ) I pretty much broke even 'cause a few people sent extra and a few people didn't include $$.

I don't want to discourage you, because it was well worth it for me to do. Just a note to be realistic.

Jesse,

I'm with Dave and Raymond: simplicity and,don't become a philanthropist.

Check with Craig and Raymond and others about the steps they had to go through (do a sketch list of tasks/flow chart, if necessary), and what it cost them to do each one. And, don't forget that labeling CDs (and other ancillary operations)is a tedious task.

Also, for the last CD set, we sent checks (or $$) with the submission , and return mail labels (IIRC).

Thanks, and good luck,


...Reid

Really, really beginners??? Are you serious about this? I've been playing with Ozzie's book for all of five days now and I am working with Exercise 1 (Kane Ki Ho'alu). I *love* the second part how it bounces up the neck and I'm really enjoying it (chiming is still a big challenge--I can do it by itself but incorporating it into the song is fun work)! In past years I really wanted a copy of the CD to hear all you guys but had nothing to submit. If you're serious about "beginners" then I'll figure out how to make a recording...can I do a really simple ukulele pick/strum thing, too?

I realize this project requires some work and coordination with others who may assist, but I enjoyed last year's project so much, I didn't want to see a year go by without getting us all together in a virtual song circle. Plus I get to hear them first!
I don't have the computer audio expertise that Cpatch had, but I can burn CDs, print labels and covers. I'm planning on 25 cents per blank CD or CD label, about a buck for a double CD case (probably less) and $2.50 for shipping. and 50 cents for printing costs. There probably won't be the thick booklet that Sarah put together last year, but there will definitely be a track listing and some details, like artist name and TP.net name, tuning, instrumentation and song background.
I'm not worried about putting my address online. I work as a news photographer and meet some rough people, but it's never been an issue. And for slack key players, my door's always open.
Thanks for all the response. Let's get recording!

Ok Jesse,

One thing I can think of that can help balance the workload over time is to send you the printed info during this "dead time" when Sarah is at work and we can't record. We know the pieces she will perform, I know the equipment we have and will use, the timing of each piece will be about to the nearest quarter or half-minute (but can be updated later). This way you can have a Word doc started and block out the order of the pieces on the CDs.

Expect a Word doc in a day or two.

Tonya...YES! Beginner means you! Last year's CD included a 12-year-old's version of "Kani Ki ho'alu" and it was great. You're welcome to try it, too. But you can also do an ukulele instrumental or vocal song. This isn't strictly slack key. Most of us are lovers of Hawaiian music of all genres.
A good idea from Reid:
If you have your song titles selected, perhaps contributors could be sending along song and personal information in the near future. These include:
Name of song
Original songwriter (if known)
Your name (and taropatch.net user id)
A photo of yourself (optional but nice)
Tuning(s) used for the song
What instrument(s) you played for the song
How the song was recorded, including pickup/mic/effects used
A little about yourself, including:
- How long you've played guitar
- How long you've played slack key
- Why you picked this song to submit

That seems like a lot of information, but don't perseverate over it. I'll be editing it down to a paragraph, so you don't have to write an essay. Reid also suggested that folks submit the estimated length of each song. If you can do that, it's great.
Although I didn't mention it earlier, if the number of contributors blossoms to unweildy proportions, the result might be an MP3 CD instead of a stack of audio CDs. For the non-techie, that means the disc would only play in a computer, DVD player or a very limited number of CD players. It would only be a last resort, but it would make it easier to package and send.
I'm glad to hear from Fran, Keith and others who are excellent players, but I'm also hoping to recruit some first-timers, so pass the word.

And,more songs, less packaging for me!
