Well in typical Blue Peter style here`s one I have just finished recording,

I have tried something on this I have never done before and that is to Multi-Track it using the midi side of the recording on the tyros 5 and not the finished audio side.
Probably could have done with been a little more imaginative use of the added track rather than just adding and extra instrument on the right hand that follows the basic chord pattern of the tune, but I am still just a learner.

So here we go, Blueberry Hill warts and all, https://app.box.com/s/074kn67uznjgckpi83x7lo42sassjalv

Hi All,
I had been working all morning and early afternoon on a "womans name" tune only to find that we are doing food titles already. :cry: I have gone ahead and posted it there
and although my offering is far form perfect, I did learn it for that challenge. The tune is often known as Elvira Madigan even though it is from Mozart's Piano Concerto no 21. Hope you pop over and have a listen. :) :)

Hi Brian D,

Thanks for you kind comments on my posting of Blueberry Hill,

These challenges never close now, so there`s nothing wrong with posting to any of them as they will all show up on the board,
its a fine line between waiting to see if there is going to be anymore posts in the current challenge , and starting a new one.

Brian knows what I was going to post but have not found the music yet. Maybe tomorrow. Meanwhile here is 'Kiss Me Honey Honey' which might fit as a girls name as well as a food.

Hi Keith,

Well played with that one, enjoyed your choice of voices and you played very well.
I think its going to be just as hard to find a tune to fit the bill, let alone play it ?? :D :D

Thanks to the two Brians for their kind comments. Found this little number on my my search for Sunday dinner and thought that it fit the bill on two counts! "If music be the food of love ....." and this is 'Love Potion No. 9.'

When Brian emailed me yesterday to say that he had posted a new challenge with a food theme I was just about to sit down to chicken pie for dinner. My mother in law was a Chicken - a common surname in the North East so my first thought for a contributions was this song from 1925 - 'Chick, Chick, Chick, Chick, Chicken." This was, of course the the time of the theatre organ so that seems the suitable voicing.

Hi Keith,

I now understand what you meant !

That was a good version of chick chick chicken, and the added drum roll at the beginning was a nice touch to keep it interesting
well played Keith and is there any pie left as I am starving over here, was hoping for an invite to J. Taylors for dinner ?

Hi John,

Many thanks for the kind comments John,

Still along way to go with the Multi Tracking stuff to get it right i.e balance etc. , but learning all the time
its not that hard, if you can record a midi on the Tyros its really only one more step that`s all.

More than willing to show you how its done ,

Hi Everyone. I think this one may qualify. Jambalaya a Spanish dish. May also qualify with Jam in title. Found the style on music finder on Tyros 4. Sounds supplied with the kind permission of JonD. Hope you enjoy your listen., John

Hi John, Nice to have you back in the UK. That was a nice version of Jumbalaya. If I remember the words correctly the whole song is like a recipe book of what I think is Creole or soul food. Did you not get that in Florida? My good lady has been known to make it as well as chicken pie. Here is a recipe for you to leave in a handy place! http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/.../ ... horizo-ja.. Sorry but the link does not work - perhaps need to copy and paste.

Here is one to bring us down to earth with a bump after John T's exotica. I give you boiled beef and carrots.

https://app.box.com/s/tdsuagtylcbr5svjz8mjwil5g26uuvju

Part of the verse is, "That's the stuff for your Darby Kel." I looked it up to find out what that means but does anybody know without doing the same?

Hi All,

Here`s something different, nothing to fancy just a straight forward ballad in 3/4 time called " A taste of Honey " which does get a little sticky in places :roll:
