Kerry Christensen calls me (!?)

KerryChristensen.jpgI taught myself yodeling with Kerry Christensen's CD *U2 can yodel*. When I had worked my way all through the lessons on the CD, I posted a video response with my performance of the last, hardest, yodel to Kerry's YouTube info-mercial.

I hadn't expected him to take note of my yodeling attempts, much less contact me about anything.
But that's exactly what he did! Yesterday he wrote me an email, saying that he also saw my interpretation of Melanie Oesch's Kuku-Jodler and would like to talk to me about that.

Today Kerry Christensen called me on the phone, to chat about yodeling in general and my approach to learning *harder* yodels, like the Kuku-Jodler. I told him that I used 'Audacity' to modify the sound files, that I sing along with for practice. I slow them down, so that I can get them figured out. I also transpose the pitch to match my voice range.

Kerry is a really nice guy! He said I'm doing a good job at yodeling. We'll stay in touch, I hope.

Hallo Birgit,

also, ich habe meine Jodelei mit dieser CD von Kerry Christensen gelernt. Heißt 'U 2 Can Yodel', gibt's online zu kaufen - einfach mal danach googeln. Außerdem habe ich noch eine CD mit Buch/Übungsheft für den Cowboy-Stil.
Die heißt 'How to Yodel the Cowboy Way' und ist von Rudy Robbins und Shirley Field. Mir persönlich gefällt der Original alpine Jodelstil besser, aber zum Lernen kann man auch den Westernstil verwenden.

Viel Spaß dabei !
