Worth a Try

musician/member name: Music
Duration: 00:04:25
Some days ago this melody emerged from playing a little bit around on my dulcimer and I thought that it is "Worth a Try" to make a whole composition out of it.
I called this tune "Worth a Try" - as a reminder for me to always realize that one should never give up and should always try for the better. : )

I would be happy if you enjoyed it...

(Best listened to it with headphones!)

Very nice, Ariane. You did a wonderful job. It was not only Worth a Try, but also worth watching and listening.

Thank you very much, Marc, for your kind comment.

I have never heard of a Stoessel Lute - looks "uncommon" with this very short fretboard. Did you buy it and if so how do you like it?

Hi Ariane, what a wonderful composition! Beautifully arranged & performed with all those instruments. My brother & I spent some time in Hattingen, Germany last October and came across an old Stoessel Lute in a music shop. Seems it was quite common in the early 1900's but later lost popularity. Are you familiar with this instrument ?

I am looking forward to your recordings.

I really enjoyed this, especially since I play ukulele. I’m new to the mountain dulcimer and have been thinking of recording tunes with uke, mandolin and md.
