Just a note on the rhythm,it might be called 9/8 or 6/4....takes a bit of getting used to if you're unfamiliar with it,the odd numbers make the beat turn around[and the strum pattern]...it's an ancient rhythm,sing happy birthday or God Save the Queen...that is so funny how I just capitalized the queen...old time Canadian loyalist I guess,laugh....or!my country tis' of thee...
It was made by the Gardners from Grafton,Ohio.I'm very pleased with it.
That mountain dulcimer and your voice match perfectly, Jamie. Are you referring to the Gardners from WV as the family from which the dulcimer came?
Played on a Gardner family teardrop dulcimer...I'm capoing somewhere and it's in A...I get lost in the math but it's the d-a-dd configuration...what with capos,interesting tunings,changing the pitch,different styles of dulcimers,it gets really confusing...I love it!
