    Very nice Kathy. Enjoyed listening to it just now before starting my work for the day!

    And that acorn whistle is LOUD! Reminds me of my childhood days when the balloon seller on the streets (a rare breed these days) would also offer these cheap, plastic things that would test the limits of our ear drums! Some of my friends in school also used to make loud whistling sounds using rose petals as a membrane; I never managed to get anything beyond a whisper though!

    Anyway, here is Hamsini’s piece, in collaboration with Harini – they did not fight with each other over some trivia and instead worked together after quite a while! For some reason, probably motivated by Harini learning some Schumann pieces on the piano, they wanted to name their song in German!

    Thanks,

    Thanks Chris. I will pass your wishes over to Hamsini. I don’t think she can name any chord except may be the 1-chords. She basically makes the melody Indian style and then tries to fit chords in. For her any combination of notes from the scale (sometime with off-scale notes) is fine as a chord as long as it is playable and sounds OK to her.

    Best,

    Hello all

    Here is Hamsini’s solo in response to challenge #24. She has played this on her brand new low-G Pono ATD (and the Uke logic strings) that arrived at home all the way from Hawaii’s The Ukulele Site on New Year’s Day.

    She says this is a rough draft and she is working on articulation while I try and figure out how to record nicely with the mic and mixer.

    Thanks,
    Aswin

    Hi Robb: Yes. Harini and Hamsini are twins. Covid-19 has ensured that schools are shut; they have some online lessons a couple of days a week and they find these lessons fairly easy. This has given them a lot of time to focus on music (Harini is learning the piano from Hugh Sung at ArtistWorks and Hamsini, of course, her uke from Aldrine; Hamsini has also started learning to play the guitar with a nice local teacher here who also helps Harini fiddle around with an electronic keyboard).

    We live in Bangalore now, but both my wife and I are from Chennai and the twins were also born there. A coincidence: I am a biologist with a PhD and I train PhD students as a faculty at the National Centre for Biological Sciences in Bangalore. I do bioinformatics, which is a blessing at this time when working from home is not such an impediment to getting things done.

    Hello:

    This is Hamsini’s piece for Challenge #19. She calls this song “Mystery of Sherlock Holmes” (disclaimer: she has not read any Sherlock Holmes stories / books yet!). She has tried to incorporate all the new things she has been learning – alternate tuning (open A minor), some finger picking, playing notes while barring.

    Thanks
    Aswin
