I go to a grand total of two sf conventions a year (and one filk con) … and it seems like they always happen when I’m feeling particularly unwell. Marcon is this weekend, and I’ve paid my membership fees and reserved a hotel room (a big splurge for me), so naturally I’ve got a sore throat and have been coughing a lot, am having trouble concentrating, and round about supper time my whole jaw starts aching, and I end up having to take some asprin or I can’t get to sleep at night.
On the plus side, after months of working at it off and on, and getting extremely frustrated, I’ve finally come up with an arrangement for Waltz in a Whirl that doesn’t make me shudder. If you go to my main song list page there are some other Black Flag midi’s up their as well.
(One of the nice things about posting midi files is that they are small and download quickly. One of the awkward things is that what they sound like depends a bit on what you are using to play them. The volume and tone of the various instruments is not consistent between my music program (Melody Assistant) and the midi files that it makes, as played by my web-browser’s Quicktime plugin. Makes balancing out the various parts a bit tricky.) 🙁
