St Patrick’s Day comes around every March 17th, so why not help us celebrate the occasion in SoundCloud style?
All you need to do is play, record and upload something Celtic or Irish themed over the next few days and tag it “St Patrick” or “Irish.” Next week we’ll search the ‘cloud for your music and put them all into a special St Patrick’s set that will be featured here again.
If you need some inspiration, here are three stems of the jig, “Out on the Ocean”, recorded on whistle, low whistle and uilleann pipes, ready to download and remix . They were all recorded to a click, and they’re all in the key of G. They’ll all fit together of course, as they would in a traditional Irish session. If you want to have a go, don’t feel you have to be the least bit traditional in your approach. Whatever you like!
