The Magic Music Machine

How do we sing at Dan, without a piano?

Well we did have Gwilym with his guitar. But now he's left...

Yes, we still have our secret weapon - Christian Hymns DVD of MP3 accompaniment files.

Pastor Robert Maclean of Rhuddlan showed me how they use them there. Admittedly he's an advanced user, putting the fies through Audacity to change the pitch and speed to suit the congregation. I have not done anything like that.

I have, however, loaded them all onto my little iPad mini so that with a bluetooth speaker strategically positioned (near a plug) we can sing anything in the hymn book at will!

Together these things constitute the Magic Music Machine.

Pretty good, eh?
