Mike, my reality is that I could have Ken's mics, etc., but my music will never ever sound as magnificent and magical as what Ken produces.... Reality bites. LOL JudyMike Cook wrote: ↑Fri May 24, 2019 1:35 pmKen - Your playing continues to improve. I need to try to get caught up with lesson 9. And yes, the new mic has a terrific sound quality. How does it integrate with the video? For example, I use a DSLR camera for video with a mini mic jack. Is there a way I can use a mic like yours with my DSLR? I'm guessing it would require an interface? What was the make and model of you mics?
Colin, thank you much for your comment and support this year!
Judy, I also read pm.Judy Verbeeten wrote: ↑Sun May 26, 2019 12:01 pmYeh, to our group, but as Colin noted, particularly to Ken, who rightfully was singled out and recognized by the jury for his exceptional playing.
And that's only one piece the jury listened to .... if they only knew, that all his submissions are just as excellent.
I think I can speak for our group when I say that we all benefit from being able to watch and listen to all of Ken's submissions on this board.
We will lose Mike, but that leaves only 3 going forward (I assume). Although others might join, in all the other fora D03 appear to have low numbers of 3-4.

One target I hope you will consider is going through the grades towards D06. This year we will be running a combined D06/07 in English and completion of D06 qualifies a member to become a student tutor so I’m hoping you will consider working towards that. We will be adding at least 1 more moderator to allow us to run this extra group, but the role of moderators is focussed more on the smooth running of the forum and helping students with the mechanics of forum life. Although we are often asked for advice on musical aspects we have to be careful that students don’t take our word as gospel so I tend to phrase advice in terms of “my experience is .....”.
At the moment we only have 1 student tutor and he is also a professional teacher hence constrained on time. So having more would be a great benefit to the forum and it would be great to see you working towards that goal as I think you would be very good at it.
Ken, actually the reason Mike Cook will not be in D03 next year, is because he was very ambitious and completed D01, D02 and D03 this year.
Colin, you are absolutely right about Ken being an excellent tutor, but he has already achieved that status. As a fellow student in D02, Ken provided thoughtful analysis and constructive advice to me and the other students in D02 throughout the term. I look forward to his valuable inputs next year in D03.
I thought he was leaving Delcamp. He sure will be in D04 with no doubt.
