Thanks Dave and Christine. I appreciate it.
Very, very pretty Gail - thank you!
Thanks, Jan. Yes, we should definitely take our baritones to Wild Acres. It's become my favorite. It makes more noise when sliding because of the wound middle and bass string, but that's ok. I went to a local antique mall to look for a good chair to use and found this one. It's about right for my short legs and I love the lines of it. Take care and safe travels back next week. We got about 6 inches of snow here last night.
ps...if I'm not mistaken, that chair is made of cherry, as well! Very dainty!
Gail, let's both bring our baritones to the retreat and we can do some pretty harmonies! This is so soothing and would even work as a lullaby. I know 2 tunes for this song, but this is the one I learned first. Great job!
Thanks Ron, Robin and Ken. Ken, I already had my strap snapped on so I didn't have to fumble with it on video - hence a little shuffling. I went to a local antique mall and found that little chair. It turned out to be just the right height for my short legs.
Seen the strap under the legs before, Gail - one instructor say it was to allow you to move dulcimer left and right. Lovely song would love to learn it. Thank you for sharing.
Oh that's lovely
That is soooo pretty, Gail. Nice little harmonic on the end. You have your strap around the back of your legs in the chair shuffle? Am I missing something here? Nice chair, though.
Beautiful Gail, love this song.
Thanks everyone. I just love the deeper voice of my new baritone for a change.
The instrument sounds wonderful (so does the player). I saw that nice work with the thumb...cool!
Very nice, one of my favorite old hymns
I love this on your baritone
Thanks Gordon and Cynthia. I also recorded a faster tune and uploaded it, but it didn't come through - I'll have to try it again. Did you notice my shuffle from the camera to the chair because I have my strap around the back of my legs?
You play so sweetly, Gail. Thank you for this.
I heard Cindy Stammich play her beautiful version of this on her baritone and it inspired me to get a baritone. This version isn't nearly as beautiful as hers, but it's the first one I played on this one. It's a McSpadden cherry with redwood top, tuned AEa.
