Well,now I'm really inspired to look for moresimilar songs to work out for dulcimer...I usually do the really slow ones. Thanks for letting me know you enjoy it.

Thanks Oliver and Geekling.

About a CD, don't know about that, but I'm thinking I have to make some kind of "break through" this year...not sure what that will be. New Year's resolutions and all. Glad if you enjoy my singing as I've enjoyed doing it since I started a few years ago. Added much to my enjoyment of my dulcimer.

Thanks Dusty. That was a pinch pinch accompaniment I had to adapt, as I'm not used to a quick song and a strum strum accompaniment sounded too choppy. I had the bit at the beginning I kind imitated the feel from another song (The Bitter the Parting--John Doyle and Kate Rusby), and needed to find a song to put it to and Val mentioned this song.I need help sleeping..I use ZzQuil..maybe I should put together a tape for myself.I just listened to The Bitter the Parting again...it's so painfully gorgeous, to say I took my bit from that...well I drew INSPIRATION from it, let's say.

Very nice. I love the way your picking approach changes when you stop playing the melody and begin backing up your vocals. You keep a nice rhythm going without attracting attention away from your voice. And your singing is just wonderful. If I call you in the evenings, will you sing me to sleep?Smile.gif This is really good stuff!

Thanks for listening, especially if it'sa song you've never heard of.

Thanks Val for steering me to this song, I usually don't attempt "perky" songs. I had the intro bit, but no song to use for it, so this solved that problem Smile.gif My little "blue friend" looks like bright neon ....I guess it's so I can't lose it so easy.
