    This little elephant is getting really sleepy as the story progresses. It must be near or even way past its bedtime ! This being a lullaby I guess it is a very valid way to project it. Personally I'd go for a little more entertainment, but or course you can go many ways with a piece like this and there is no right or wrong. Technically I have nothing useful to say, I think it's all there.

    LOL. Thanks for the reply.

    Funny thing is, I took a listen to your version and you went absolutely BONKERS when it sped up ... which I personally enjoy ...

    The thing is, I was doing that speeding up deal about a week or two ago. I pictured the "speed up" part as a nightmare, so I was also speeding up a TON to get that anxious quality to the piece.

    I played it for my piano teacher last week and she was like "oh my goodness your tempo is speeding up WAY too much" so I slowed it down ... I tried to maintain some sense of the nightmare-ish quality, though.

    Where is the mp3? I was going to have a listen but it's not there anymore. Can you upload again, or did I just miss it? I was just remembering how I used to love my Debussy book and pulled it out the other day and played Le Petite Negre.

    Hi echoyfeff,

    I've not played the Children's Corner as I was drawn more to some of Debussy's others pieces. Nonetheless, I think you've done a lot of work with "Jimbo's Lullaby". Sounds fine to me.

    David
