Description
300 of Beavercreek's finest singing chipmunks...in a performance for just this one day. Paula had to use Char's haunted GB. Sliders do whatever they want. Hopefully, you can hear something. :)

Lyrics
Just hum along, or

Oh Shenandoah,
I long to hear you,
Away you rolling river.
Oh Shenandoah,
I long to hear you,
Away, I'm bound away,
'cross the wide Missouri.
Oh Shenandoah,
I love your daughter,
Away, you rolling river.
For her I'd cross,
Your roaming waters,
Away, I'm bound away,
'Cross the wide Missouri.
'Tis seven years,
since last I've seen you,
And heard your rolling river.
'Tis seven years,
since last I've seen you,
Away, we're bound away,
Across the wide Missouri.
Oh Shenandoah,
I long to hear you,
And hear your rolling river.
Oh Shenandoah,
I long to hear you,
Away, we're bound away,
Across the wide Missouri.

Sorry, little one...
Possessed GB and not enough mics to go around. Tell the guys and girls they did great, considering. And, sorry about the cats. Fear made a couple of you a bit shrill. No casualties, thank goodness.

Trying counts
I sure had to sing that a lot of times.

This is from...
...the very first movie I ever saw in a movie theater (okay, I was about 3 months old and I'm not going to give the name of the picture away for fear of revealing my actual age of 93!) The chipmunks are in especially wistful and mellifluent form here Paula--thanks!

Hiya, sweetheart,
They sang under threat of imminent death. There were two stray cats in the yard.
Paula intended to sing lead but the GB gods that be made it a total disaster. Char should probably get a new mac.
Thank you for the support and it is damn good to see you here, Michael.

Oh, no, Bill...
I can't fathom why. Are you picturing 300 chipmunks with only 10 mics among them. There were more male chippies than female chippies. Several of the girls were scared of the cats. After two rehearsals, they made the final recording. It wasn't very loud. If only Char knew what she was doing. They told me they want to try something for Christmas. But, if it is creepy, they might not go through with it.

Yeah..
I'm a screw-up, too. Half the stuff I try to do isn't very good because I don't know how to do anything in the production process. And the other half is crap because I'm no musician. But, damn, it is fun to try.

I know
exactly how frustrating it is. But, hopefully, we can still learn some things. I, for one, am willing to try. The encouragement found here is priceless.

And now for something completely different
Well, that was unexpected! Very cleverly done.

It reminds of the type of vocal pieces Eric Whitacre writes.

It's a keeper :-)

That was
beautiful. I think the director had it easier, working with the louder voices. Chipmunks need a lot of amplification. But, they are bright eyed and bushy tailed and exuberance counts for a lot in this world. Love ya lots, Dick. And, thanks.

Singing together
Ha-ha-hah .. you never know what to expect when you pop into MacJams.

It's the gift that keeps on giving!

Who knew you could get hundreds of chipmunks to co-operate?

Hi Warren..
The chippies deserve a better producer than what we got. And, a safe recording venue. Fortunately for them, they run like the wind.
Thanks for coming on over. We appreciate it.
The girls want to tackle "The First Noel", for this Christmas. There may not be as many as 300, since it gets pretty cold here. (Recording indoors isn't safe, either, because Char has 4 cats.)

O, Shenandoah
Cute photo. It sounds like we are down the valley a ways listening to their ethereal choir. Nature at it most sublime. Thanks, Char. Take care, Peter.

Hi, honey,
I intend to try this again, perhaps with some guest chipmunk vocalists. If anyone wants to sing along, that would be great. Hint...hint. Thank you. :)

Why, thank you.
Yep..I'm in there a lot. But, I think I can do this better. It was meant for the get together last week... just a little something. I rushed it and I was stymied by the weird GB I have. :)

Mostly, gritted my teeth.
And, a bunch of takes. But, I couldn't get the effects to work like I wanted. I will try once again. It is especially hard to mic chipmunks. They are a little nuts.

Oh, so very
sorry. I had no idea anyone slipped into this little hamlet. I just have to give this sort of thing another try. I got a new computer this past Summer and I've been dragging my paws. Than you, hon.
