I am happily retired from a very rewarding career in public service. I live on my farm in the beautiful "Peace River Country" of northern Alberta, Canada. I play a baritone mountain dulcimer for my enjoyment and to accompany my singing. I very much appreciate the community here at FOTMD.

G'day there young Gordon, i always pop a reply up on my video pages when people are kind enough to comment. I just realised that they may not know the reply is there. I just wanted to especially thank you for following my music and all your kind words. Hapoy Strumming.

 I didn't see a message tab up top, so will try here. Yes, If you can attach the "On Eagle Wings" tab by way of a pdf or jpeg file or I'm not sure how we get tabs to each other. 

thanks

That's neat you were part of a German singng group, Gordon!  I don't sing well in English so will, likely, not try singing in German.  :) I'll go with an instrumental for now-- this melody is so pretty!

Thank you so much, Gordon!  Actually, I'd like to learn to read German someday and Latin, too!

Gordon, Smiley Dog always sings to your music, he and I like the baritone with your deep voice. I would like to get you and Smiley together for a concert, you would be greatly surprised how good he sounds.sing
