Thanks very much, Patriotic! Glad you enjoyed it.
I just came across your version of this song, very pretty rendition. Great tune.
Thanks for the information. I am now going to retune and dig out the melody...I want to learn to play this hymn. I wish I could find the tab!
Thank you very much for your comments about "The Old Rugged Cross"! It's actually not a baritone, but a standard pitch/range dulcimer (a Sunhearth hourglass). I'm in 1-3-5 tuning in D (D-F#-A). Quite a bit of the playing is done on the lower strings, which is why it has rather a baritone-ish character. The string gauges are .024", .014", and .012". Actually when I recorded this tune the strings had been on the dulcimer a fairly long time and were really due for replacing, but I thought their duller than average character suited this piece!
I just listened to you playing The Old Rugged Cross...it is the most beautiful!! Are you playing on a baritone? ...In what key> what are your string size?
