This is fabulous...you guys nailed it. I like that you picked something more "recent" if you can call it that...but most of the time you see covers of Locomotive breath and songs like that, which is fine, but this is different...I like it.
The passengers upon the ferry crossing, waiting to be born, renew the pledge of life's long song rise to the reveille horn.
Nice job guys, pretty slick. You hammered that English riff good and proper I must say, and make good use of the recorder in place of the concert flute. Good choice for a cover.
I thought the same thing! I'm looking and saying, that's not a flute. How is this happening? Sounds exactly the same.
Yeah, this is pretty close isn't it. This guy is nailing most of the same notes as on the original so that's one reason I think it sounds more alike than it should otherwise. He's even bending the notes - pretty cool. Being that you blow into it rather than across the mouth piece, the phrasing and attack are different - less breathy. I've always prefered the recorder ( which I assume this is ) as I always thought it sweeter sounding than a flute. You hear them a lot in baroque music, courtly dances and the like, and the fingers actually cover the holes like on an Irish whistle. I have a couple and have actually recorded with them ( pardon the pun ) but never to the point where I would put it on my resume.
