Got Dragon Naturally Speaking 11 for Christmas

I got the program for Christmas that allows you to talk your blogs. Not real sure what I want to talk about but it sure is a lot faster to type it! I hope to get back to blogging about music composition as well is my own recording studio creations.

My last gig went well on Christmas Eve. I sang without microphones or amplifiers. It felt really strange singing out into the open space of the church, it felt like I was singing into a pillow. Feedback from the family in the congregation was that it was plenty loud enough.

Well, just wanted to try out the new Christmas toy. It seems to work very very well. In fact, since I trained it just a few minutes ago, it has only made two word errors. The software really is quite amazing. Merry Christmas to all.

Singing and playing guitar prior to Christmas eve service

Just got asked by the choir director at Zion Lutheran church to sing a few minutes before Christmas Eve service.  I haven't picked out the songs yet but I am planning on bringing a microphone and my amplifier so I won't get drowned out by the larger than normal crowds.
