    That's super, Jay! George seems to be enjoying himself. The organ has remarkably good tone, and your pipes are well-tuned, too. Does the tempo of the song change with the speed of the crank?

    Thanks much for making the video. If possible, you should add something to the "More Info" section on YouTube to let folks know you made the organ.

    As an aside, back in my rock band guitar-playing days, the bass player and I used to play that song (Sailor's Hornpipe) as a finger warmup and exercise. I still run through it from time to time to see if the ol' fingers still remember how it's done.

    Ditto Rennie, just amazing. That just put a smile on my face. I can't imagine what all goes into those to create such sound. Thanks for sharing your craft

    Yes I control the tempo by crank speed so it depends how lazy I am feeling as to how fast its played

    Sailors Hornpipe is one of my favorites right now but then its a fairly new roll

    I want it! I haven't heard anything so happy in a long time! Absolutely wonderful to hear! I must be a guy thing because my wife couldn't understand why I want to build one.
    Aloha,
