Linda, you may want to alter or remove your email address- spambots routinely collect email addresses posted on public sites (and FOTMD is a public site).

If you and Monica 'follow' each other's profile pages, then you will be able to exchange private notes and thus more safely give out your contact info.  yes

Thanks Mary. I know, it is delicious. William coulter plays guitar mostly Celtic and his arrangements are indescribably delicious lol.

Sorry Angela let me answer the specific questionI heard this on a William coulter cd. He plays guitar. I listened to it over and over, picked out the melody, filled in the chord shapes , filled it in with picking patterns then wrote down my arrangement of it. I did find a simple melody line in a Gaelic music book , the bridge I did by ear .

Hi Angela...I play chord shapes. There are basically 5 core shapes that make most of the chords possible. Similar to the 1-3-5 chord on the piano. You only have an 8 note scale , like c-c on the piano to work with. Once you learn the shapes ,you can pick out a melody and one of the chord shapes will be what you need. Then the main objective becomes leaving those chords down as long as physically possible and still play the melody notes. I was a music major but when I started playing I found the dulcimer the most confounding thing. Mostly in the area of keys and chords. I play mostly in CGC and if I need another key I just retune or capo as each Mixolydian tuning has 3 major keys I can play in and 3 minor keys. I did a tutorial on here for chords in CGC that kind of explains a lot of this. I have a book called Harmonious Dulcimer on my website that explains some of this or you can email me from my site. There is also free tab there you can look at if that would help.lindabrockinton .comwork

Great video and playing as always Linda! When you tune to CGc tuning, are you using the standard DAd string set?

Linda, that is so beautiful it almost took my breath away. You are a true master. Thanks so much for sharing.

Linda, Cit na gCumann translates Kitty my darling or sweetheart. There are other words to describe darling and sweetheart in the Irish language, which can be quiet complicated.The word Na (na gCumann) implies plural, this is a case of the genitive plural at play here.Not an expert by any means. Keep up the great work.
