Greetings one and all

Here is my very first Mountain Dulcimer offering to the world. Twinkle twinkle little star is the first tune taught on Dulcimer crossing. Played with a noter in DAA, I have put my own slant on it but hopefully it's recognisable. Your critiques would be welcome.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Regards

 

Eric

I prefer DAD as so much tab is written for it.  But, there is a club here that only plays in daa, so it is a dilemma.

Hi Caco, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer.  It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.
