Supporting the Music and CD Update

ATNMAmazonLinkI’m pleased to announce that there is now a way to support my musical endeavors without it costing anyone a penny. I have become an Amazon Affiliate. All this means is that when you make a purchase on Amazon, if you got there by clicking through my link, I get a small percentage of the sale. The price remains the same – Amazon just sends me a bit of their profits in return for driving business to their site. You can click on the Amazon.com button on any of my websites, but the easiest way would be to copy the following text:

http://www.amazon.com/?tag=althne0c-20

and save it as a favorite in your web browser. So, if you’re going to shop at Amazon anyway, please consider clicking through my link first. For my part, I promise that any money that comes from this source will entirely go to support the music and ministry, not payments on a sports car 😉

In other, more relevant news, I’m getting close! Here’s a snapshot of the progress:

Those with sharp eyes will observe that there are only two (TWO!) unfinished tracks at this point. I have completed recording of the handbells for Deep, Deep Love and they are currently being edited. Once edited I will record the men’s chorus and lastly the solo instrument. I will need to buy or construct a pan pipe sample library for this last part.

Medley: Peace has now been completely arranged and I have sent the guitar part of to one of my best friends and guitarist extraordinaire, Will Spicher. He is going to look at the fingerstyle guitar part and see if it’s even playable…

The other instrument is an Irish Whistle, which I’m still figuring out how to record. Do I want to buy a sample library or an actual acoustic whistle and learn to play it? I would definitely prefer the latter, but it may be cost and time prohibitive. Actually, I know a guy back in Illinois that plays the penny whistle (although I don’t know if he owns a Low Whistle). Wouldn’t it be cool if he went to my friend’s house to record the track while I produced the session remotely via Skype? Hmmm, have to ponder that a bit and see if it could be coordinated.

More to come…
