Hey, friends, thank you for the nce comments!  I wanted my Ode to sound as though it had a little grit to it. :)

The home base tuning on my Timbre Hill dulcimer is Bagpipe (Ddd).  For Ode, I placed a false nut at fret 4 under two drone strings and used a thumb strum (hitting the strings with the back of my thumb nail).

Hello Robin, that's indeed a fine rendition. I am also very glad that you are participating in James' monthly challenges I'm always hopeful that more folks will take up the challenge.

Hey, I really like that noter drone sound too! I think I'll give it a try in the morning.....

Hi Robin,

This is the 1st time I've heard the Ode played noter drone style and I enjoyed it. Thanks.
