Re: The Buzzard

The buzzard is absolutely not a real. It needs to be played in a lazy wilting fashion like the bird soaring in the air. There should be a very flowing quality to this tune. My husband just found this website today, and it is so awesome. I am very sorry to say that the audio presentation of this tune totally destroys the mood of the peace. Everything else I have found has been absolutely amazing. I wonder if there is any way to slow down or speed up the audio versions of the tunes. I learn music by ear and it would be useful if I could vary the speed. Thanks in advance for answers.
