At Eventide

musician/member name: Music
Duration: 00:01:58
Mark & I play together, as usual, on mountain dulcimer in noter/drone style and guitar. :) This is a little tune we've been working on and we call it "At Eventide". Our apologies for the guitar player not being more visible-- we were working to get the sound balanced as well as we could.

Many thanks, @studentofrhythm !  We struggled to get the sound balanced by positioning ourselves so the guitar didn't overwhelm the dulcimer.  Mark needs quieter guitars.  haha

Good tune, good recording.  Reminds me of summer.

Hey, @dusty-turtle, we were hoping we were tight enough! hi5  Even though we haven't played music throughout our marriage, four-plus decades of being together may account for some of how we play together.  

Maybe sometime Mark can switch guitars, change to one which doesn't overwhelm the sound of the dulcimer, and we can make a little movie.  Really, I'm lucky to have such a good guitar picker in the house.

As the kids say, "you guys are tight!"  Really in synch with one another.   

Maybe you can do another recording that will allow us to see Mark, or at least his guitar and picking.  I am always impressed at his precise and careful accompaniment that never demands attention and lets the dulcimer shine.

@strumelia Thanks for watching and for the nice comment!   Mark is the one who has to work hard because I'm just playing on one string.  Noter power! winky

You two make it seem so easy... but i know that's a bit deceptive. Working together weaving a tune is such a beautiful and intimate dance..  you both do it so gracefully.

Dear Robin and Mark - this tune is another wonderful one - thank you so much - it is a joy to hear (your guitar man) and see you playing dulcimer

@cynthia-wigington, it's an honor to be played at your house the night before Christmas for you and your mouse!  

P.S.- Not only is a mountain dulcimer more fun to play, it weighs several pounds less than an autoharp and is easier to wrangle.

You two sure brighten up the night before Christmas with only a mouse in the house. Thanks so much. Sure does sound like an autoharp, but more fun to play.

@randy-adams, I'm thinking the doubled middle drone gives the sound a bit more punch making it autoharp light.  :)  

When we're playing, I'd rather hear him, too.  Some other times, I'd rather just see him.  haha Markie's a keeper!  

Thanks, Randy, and I hope your holidays and the coming year are music-filled!

You playing an autoharp there Robin? : ) you're pulling some superb tone outa that box.

Hey I'd rather hear him than look at him anyways : )

And what a wonderful vocabulary addition the title thank you Robin.
