Love it Randy.
Randy, you are expanding the repertoire for noter playing-- dulcimer tunes that can transfer to fiddle instead of their being transferred the other way around. It's an open secret I'm a fan!
Sincere thanks for watching my friends.
Dusty they don't tell a story! : )
Cynthia...You and Dusty are more poetic than I am. I should have you name my tunes! They usually don't hold any meaning for me other than numerical.
Here's where I'm coming from on a couple things.
I can make up fiddle tunes. I don't really try to and w/o being dramatic about it they just kind of come to me. Probly b/c I've been playing them for so many years I know the genre inside and out, although I'm no O'Carolan.
Until about 5 years ago I never kept track of them, or remembered them, except for two. Tune 01 and an as yet unnamed tune. So I figured for the first 35 years I played the tunes I might have made up 20 tunes so I started naming them with Tune 21. Then I began using odd numbers for them, just a quirk. I've named (with actual names) about a half dozen tunes so there is gaps in the numbers but there's about 40 tunes I've kept track of.
Some I am proud of, some not. Some I got a good recording on, some not. Some of 'em I played pretty good, some, or most, with mistakes. I'm just an amateur hack, it's a hobby, a pastime, for me. Don't worry! Nothing to sell here! : )
I do like to think I'm expanding the repertoire for noter playing, or showing what's possible, within my narrow area of expertise....fiddle tunes.
Thanks again for listening and commenting.
On a Harley heading west, wind in my hair, hot sun beating down, long way to go...good tune Randy thank you. Did you write it?
Nice one Randy....thanks for sharing !
Another good one, Randy! Kind of like those old outlaw songs from the mountains.
If I haven't heard tunes 1-88, will I understand this one? Maybe you can give me a plot summary to catch me up.
Seriously, this is an infectious and haunting tune. I imagine traveling through a blizzard at night.
