Thanks for the welcome, Brian! I notice that you have the 1.5 fret, which I don't (yet). I'll have a listen now and then to remind me what I'm working towards, and someday I'll have a dulcimer that can play up to my ambitions - even if my talent is lacking. :)

Hi Brian, I am a new dulcimer player and also new to the forum. I found a thread that showed you playing (beautifully!) Norwegian Wood. It's also one of my favorite Beatles songs, and I wonder if you still have tablature that you can share?  Thank you.

Hi Brian, thank you for listening to my "Wildwood Flower" video. Yes it is my very first piece on the MD. I will admit, I'm struggling with a lot of chords, but I'm persevering - the sound of the MD is soooo addictive! Again, thank you for the encouragement.

Hi Brian,

I'd be happy to build you one. Why don't you e-mail me at kbloom1@triad.rr.com and we can talk about it in depth!

Here you go Brian. This list was mostly compiled by Sara Johnson with a few I added. The highlighted ones are ones I already know or are planning on learning in the near future.

Enjoy!18th%20century%20music.docx

Hi, what tuning are you using for The Sounds of Silence? I capoed at 1 and was going to try to play along with your video, BUT you must be different that DAD

Gaday Brian. Thanks for your input on my left hand discussion. Your video does demonstrate what you said very well. I think my beginners enthusiasm has seen me diving into songs without first working out the most efficient way to play them. Rather than trying to change how I play those first songs I think from now on I will make a rule of planning the most efficient way to play each new tune I take on. I watched a few of your videos. Oh, to be able to play like that one day. I really enjoyed them. Thanks again for your help.

Palestine was great and their was a lot of great music and jams. It'll probably be a few days before we get everything together so we can post stuff, but that's what long weekends are for. Glad to know everything is OK with you. Talk with you later.Grin.gif

Brian, my thanks for your kind comment on Nonsuch, and also for the fact that you took the trouble to 're-post' it. I do not have the faintest notion on what that entails, I can make a reasonable dulcimer, and sometimes get a decent tune or two from one, but can barely cope with this thing lol

best wishes

Your comment means a lot Brian, for I appreciate your musical attributes. I just do what I do ,lol !

Brian I'd appreciate a copy of the old TAB if you can find it.. I don't read music but know the song so I can probably figure it out.. i'm playing it right now from the fiddle tune, I managed to sort out thefingeringto pluck it on the melody string.. ( ok but far from the best).

Thanks

Kerry

Thanks for comment Brian, just keep them tunes coming, I am really enjoying your recent choices!n I can't remember if I asked before, so am asking now (it's me age ,you know) What Hammered dulcimer do you have?

John

08/18/11 05:41:47PM @john-henry:

One on Christmas Eve 2009, and one two weeks before Christmas last year ! I am just about OK now, after a bit of fine tuning, tho' there is the matter of a sticking valve yet to be sorted.............!

This is part of the reason I have had a splurge of making and posting tunes, things yet to done which should have been done ect.

I'm 78, and have seen and done a lot, but only of recent years made music, and I am 'having a blast' as we used to say a few years back.

Its good to know you Brian.

John
