WOWx2!!!!!

Wow, 2 different renditions of our national anthem, videotaped from two different venues, captured on one, amature internet video site!
It seems that the playing or singing our anthem really calls for improvisation....it sounds like you haven't played it the same way twice and that's really cool.
Now I dont know if the late Francis Scott Key, or Hendrix for that matter, is recieving royalties for this tune, but if they are, I think you should get in on some of that!

woodstock? i see summer 70 and Iwas at surprise lake summer camp
Every summer lou and ray sent me to sl camp for a month and then to THE BROOK. Seems like yesterday .I used to spend a month at the local pool club and then say bye and go north to the mountains...woodstock was is the bookmark of that summer that time in our lives. tommy was the sound of my bildersee years as paul mccartneys venus mars carried me thru UFlorida and sat night fever took me thru grad school suny albany.Songs take me back pull me back lovingly. Barry manilows ,looks like we made it ,adds a sad note as it was an OUR song, me and my girlfriend in florida whom I left as I returned to brooklyn in 78 to go to albany for 2 yrs. I never went back after albany but stayed in ny ...Shes now a judge in tampa withher own tv show

I invite you all to a great song I associate with grad from bildersee in june 72

BTW, "Shillelagh Tube" would make for a good band name. I'll give you credit if I ever decide to get a Celtic-fusion group together....gotta find some people my own age here in Vermont who want to jam.

I clicked on the link you gave for the Star-Spangled banner performance, but I didn't see it. Youtube gave me this instead.

Shillelagh Tube

Thanks Edward. You know, Scott, the keyboardist on "Celtar" (the new CD) was just in Vermont. In fact, he played at Nectars with another band. But the soundman said, "Hey, aren't you the guy who played with Von Cello?" Scott thought it was pretty cool that, with all the bands he sees, he remembered us right away.

As to your comments, I see your point. I think of that video as an introduction, but maybe it is too mysterious. I'll post a few more clips. I have three clips that include the Star Spangled Banner and a few others. I'll let you know when I get them up. One thing about Von Cello, we keep pushing ahead, so eventually something should get us the attention we deserve. It's like wet toilet paper...if you keep throwing gobs of it at the wall, eventually something sticks!

You tube? Had I known....

Well, I'll mke a comment here....really should post this on youtube, but I don't want to sign up for an account....like a MYSpace account it's all too much pressure.

Anyway...my comemment is that the video isn't long enough, and it really doesn't begin to scratch the surface of what Von Cello is about...though you do a good job "playin' the blues" in the opening solo of "Get Up Get Out Of My Way". Move Over B.B.King!
I hope that Youtube nets you a much wider fanbase, Aaron, and though that, that you are able to instill a sense of creativity and orginality in the music business.

In other news, I really need to have you back on my show....let me know when "Celtar" is finished so I can do all I can to promote it.

Hey, it looks like I'll be on You Tube! I just uploaded a video and it says it will be on soon. Well, I'll post the link and let me know if you see it. Thanks Steve for your help and encouragement. If I land a record deal on account of this I'll have to take you out for a slice at Armondos!

The one and only...

We could try that but I don't know if it reads cookies. If so, then if I went to sign in it would know I wasn't you. I sent an email to their support but haven't heard back yet. I did go and look at some of the cello videos they have and there is nothing like Von Cello!

You Schmoob

I hate when internet sites don't work right. I signed up for youtube. Then it kept asking me to reconfirm my email address, which I did. Then it wanted me to fill out the whole appllication again, which I did. Then it told me I was already a member. So I went to upload and it sent me back to the sign up screen. UGGGGGHHHH!!!!!!!!

So for now, no Youtube.

A love by any other name...

I have nothing against someone being into Sting singing Dowland. I actually heard a bit of it and was impressed. But I bet you could find otner recordings with great operatic singers whose names you would not know, but who would also sound great. But in our coporate drivin times, it often takes a famous name to make a less famous person's music popular. That is why I'm hoping that someone like Yo-Yo Ma will one day perform and record my music, or my arrangements in *Dead Cello*.

I guess love is always in the air on Valentine's Day. That poem was about the sadness of being without love. I wrote a song about that too when I was in my twenties. Not to compare with John Dowland, but just for fun, here are the lyrics.

Love, like a Rose (by Aaron Minsky)

Love, like a rose. So beautiful when it blooms. So tender to the touch. But also there are thorns.

Love, like a rose. So beautiful in the spring. Still blooming in the fall. In winter, it is gone.

If you are strong, love wil remain.
If you want pleasure, you must take some pain.
If the prince let thorns get in his way, Sleeping Beauty would still be sleeping today.

Now you see, it could never be, that simple dream that you had so long.
Whether I was good or bad to you, don't you know that it was all out of love?

Love, like a rose. So beautiful in the dawn. A fragrance that draws sighs. But also, it draws blood.

Love. Love. Love.

Warning: extremely mushy material below

Von Cello wrote:

"I always wonder why people will suddenly be into an older composer when some modern "star" performs their music, yet otherwise they would not. It's like when a classical piece will be in a movie and suddenly everyone thinks it is great. But it was great 200 years before that movie"!

Well, it's not that I'm the biggest Sting or Police fan that's ever walked the Earth, but I do likehis voice, and he's a great bass player and all around musician. I purchased a copy of "Songs from the Labyrinth" simply beciase Borders had provided a rare service where the disc was concerned: they let me preview it! I bought the disc for it's sound....just voice and two lutes! It was different for me, and I just loved it!

Speaking of "love", Happy Valentine's Day everyone. Here's an appropriate set of Dowland lyrics from the album:

"Come Again"

Come again:
Sweet love doth now invite,
Thy graces that refrain,
To do me due delight,
To see, to hear, to touch, to kiss, to die,
With thee again in sweetest sympathy.

Come again
That I may cease to morn,
through thy unkind disdain:
for now left and forlorn,
I sit, I sigh, I weep, I faint, I die
in deadly pain and endless misery.

From First Booke of Songes , 1597, no. 20)

Man, I guess love really does hurt....but I wouldn't know. I'm single.
At least I wouldn't know about man-woman, physical love. I recognize other kinds of love though....especially the love only chocoholics experience!
