    Default WORTH LISTENING FOR A FEW MINUTES!

    This little clip is certainly worth a few minutes listening, not only for a tingling version of 'Amazing Grace' - enough on it's own, but for the "bit of history on negro spirituals . . . slave scale . . . black notes." What an uplifting, enlightening (for me at least) bit of our history!

    Amazing Grace, by Wintley Phipps | KarmaTube
    NC sayin's from my mama n' daddy, a reminder, lest I forget:

    ~I’m gonna tan your hide. (You’re about to get a whoopin’.)
    ~set yourself down a spell ~~every day of the week n' twice on Sundays
    ~knock you clean into next week n' then some ~~deader than a door nail
    ~can't get blood from a turnip ~~your neck o'the woods
    ~You're just playing possum (pretendin' to be asleep when you didn't want to get up n' go to school)

    I had seen that before. Very inspiring!
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    There was a movie made a few years ago about the writing of this song, I don't think it was a box office hit but it was quite a good movie.
    I am not much of a church goer but I do love this song. There is a youtube clip of it being sung be Il Divo that can really raise the hair on your arms, it is wonderful.

    B, yes this was an excellent talk/video on the "Black Notes", purely diatonic and amazingly well done! The dulcimer is a diatonic instrument, and you'd really be surprised what you can compose with just the black keys only! Great post!
