Nice one!

Just finished…Thanks for uploading such a well-delivered vocal track! It was a breeze to add synth harmonies; bravo performance!

Funnily enough I did a Bossa version about a month ago then had second thoughts and didn’t upload it, this is great, very traditional.

You must upload this, now.

Probably against better judgement but OK done it.

Nooooo!!! I just decided to record this today and then looked only to see that you already posted it.

Actually, I was going to do a non-traditional arrangement, so I think I’m still going to finish mine.

As for yours, very classy stuff as always!

That’s great to hear, and I’m glad you’re not holding back on my account. Your stuff is never less than superior source material, and the more Auld Lang Synes the merrier.

Look forward to hearing it. :)

The classic version. Thanks. I’m also downloading the bossa and the jazz versions (unreal and clarence). We’ll see what happens.

love this! i swear i can hear an irish-clogging, celtic arrangement in there? beautiful guitar solo in the middle and a lovely vocal performance.

Absolutely classic! Now let’s have a hug and another ‘round!

You’ve made a small revival, with more modern sounds, for this traditional Scottish music, but with your talent, you’ve kept, the very meaning of this song. Excellent ….

A classic in a timeless and classy wrapping.

Ye see yon birkie ca’d a lord,
Wha struts, an’ stares, an’ a’ that;
Tho’ hundreds worship at his word,
He’s but a coof for a’ that.
For a’ that, an’ a’ that,
His ribband, star, an’ a’ that,
The man o’ independent mind
He looks an’ laughs at a’ that.

Cheers, from a real scot.

I love your classic rendition of this. Beautiful!

Nicely done Admiral! I can only imagine all the cross-genre mashed up mixes that will be served up from these samples over the next hundred years!

And the pella, it is beautifully sung with heartfelt emotion.

A bit late to the party, but oh well…

Funny, Robbie Burns is an ancestor of mine, though I’m from the illegitimate side of the family. Very beautiful arrangement and I have loved listen to you becoming a better and better musician since I’ve been following you on ccM. Your voice is excellent.
permalink   Admiral Bob Sun, Dec 26, 2010 @ 6:43 AM
Thanks for that. Don’t know if I’m actually getting any better, but I am happy to be making a better impression. :)

I always find it fascinating to learn who is in peoples’ family tree. Robbie Burns would be a cool ancestor to have. In my own case, I’ve got Benjamin Franklin. :)

Just revisiting this track after listening to Jeris’ gorgeous remix. Your voice is just so warm, rich and encouraging here. Delicious. I hope this year brings you endless opportunity to sing. Bravo!
