Nice Vlog! The instrument is beautiful and I love the sound. :)I've played the guitar, both acoustic and electric for 45 years, and I'm a fan of all stringed instruments. I'd never seen this one before. Thanks for sharing this, and happy pickin' & strummin'!Marvin D Wilsonhttp://inspiritandtruths.blogspot.com/http://tiedyedtirades.blogspot.com/
A nice sounding instrument - I enjoyed the demo. Thanks.Jane Kennedy Suttonhttp://janekennedysutton.blogspot.com/
Thanks so much for sharing this. The souind is lovely and yes, it is magical. It was nice to "see" you as well. Happy strumming!Karenhttp://www.karenfollowingthewhispers.blogspot.com
Gee, that was just great. What a pretty sound the Kantele makes--due in part to the musician, for sure. Nicely done. Charming post.Galenhttp://GalenKindley.com
This is so cool! I want to learn to play! I love when bloggers include videos within posts -- And you kept it to under 1:30, which I think is a good cutoff for time.
What a great change of pace, although you've been leading up to it all along. Wonderful- You've Got Talent!Karen K. Brees, Ph.D.http://www.karenkbrees.comhttp://www.practicalpreserving.blogspot.com
Thank you all for the kind comments! The kantele is a beautiful and soothing instrument. It's easy to picture all the animals laying down to listen to Väinämöinen play, isn't it?Alexis -- it's also very easy to learn, particularly the 5-string. In Finland, they introduce them to small kids in school.I'm saving to get one of the cherry red electric 15-strings from Koistinen. They are really gorgeous.
What a beautiful sound it makes! Thanks for introducing me to the Kantele. I really enjoyed your clip...Elizabethhttp://mysterywritingismurder.blogspot.com/
That was excellent. The video clip is well done and plays smoothly without pausing, even on my stubborn laptop. The instrument sound is nice -- reminds me of the instrument my aunt used to play as she demonstrated folk music from the Appalachians.Patriciahttp://patriciastoltey.blogspot.com
Charming and magical!! I love the melodic sound of your Kantele. Also, your presentation was very natural and appealing. Video length was perfect.Jinahttp://tinyurl.com/BerlinSexDiary
That was both charming and educational. Thank you for sharing that with me. Alan ChinAuthor of Island Songhttp://alanchin.net
This will inspire me to finally get the audio speakers on my computer working - they've been silent for far too long!
Alas, I can't get the photos to download today, much less the vlog. Sigh. The delights of country living include dial-up.Danihttp://twitter.com/blogbooktours
Thanks for sharing! I love the sound.
Thanks for sharing your playing of the kantele. That was lovely!
As Patricia Stotley notes, the semblance to an autoharp is strong, and not unflattering to either. Get down with your musical self, Kate!
LOL -- I don't think I ever noticed just how asymmetrical my face is! Wow. Thanks for the kind comments. Glad folks enjoyed it.
