Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed my arrangements. I listened to a few of your songs as well, and I can see that you enjoy ancient minor/modal sounds also! :-) Your songs are very well suited to the dulcimer, as is your singing. I love medieval,Renaissance, and world music; Ialways end up returning tomodal and minor music...

Are you familiar with "Lamento di Tristano/La Rotta"? Icame up with an arrangement of the "La Rotta" part not too long ago... The"Sackpipslt Frn Norra Rda" reminded me of it.

Good to hear from you Partrick, its 'that time of the year' to be busy with schoolwork, I guessed it might be that keeping you busy. I am glad that you are well, speak to you again soon ?

Hi Patrickwell its a standard blue lion rosewood 11 but i have changed the inlay pattern so its a bit customised too. I cant get any of my lot intererested in playing the dulcimer but my son is musical. he plays trumpet, guitar and pretty much anything he picks up he can play. I took him with me to buy my first dulcimer as I didnt have a clue and of course he just sat down in the shop and played it! maybe when i've got two dulcimers i might get them to join in on the other one? We also have a mandolin, bodrun, harmonica, assorted drums.........gets out of hand doesnt it! Grin.gif

Hello Patrick,Just saw that you were online and decided to satisfy my curiosity, so I hope you don't mind me asking what area of archaeology you are involved in - I work in Scottish medieval archaeology, hence the curiosity about another dulcimer playing archaeologist. I am enjoying the music on your page here.Peter

yeah I'm probably going for a blue lion. I played Geoff Blacks at Hayes and fell in love with it - he had a job getting it back! If i order one now i will get it end of january so not too long to wait.glad your'e coming next year. if it would help with the travelling and staying a bit longer you would be very welcome to stay with me and my family. We dont live very far from stansted and you could come to Launde with me. My husband came last year and now my son is expressing an interest too so we could be quite a bandwagon. And if you fancy a quick flit to the UK in between - same goes - welcome to the elms (my house). Good luck with your studies. are all those dulcimers (and dulcimer like thingys) in the pictures yours? its an interesting looking collection.Marion

Hi Patrickthanks for the invite! I'm glad you had a good time at Hayes - its a great weekend, I love it but its always over too soon. Going to practise hard on all the material JohnS gave us and seriously considering upgrading to a better dulcimer too. best wishes marion.

Patrick, the ball was amazing, you would have loved it, I said at the time it was the best 'scratch' band that we have ever had at a Nonsuch event, and the dancing was 'interesting' as well,LOLJohn

I'm delighted to accept your friend request, Patrick. It was great to meet you at the Nonsuch weekend, and to hear you play. Thanks very much for agreeing to join John Henry and myself for "The Prophet" in the concert - at very short notice! I was pretty exhausted after the weekend (particularly as I had to go straight out to a group rehearsal as soon as I got back on Sunday). I'm back to normal now - I think. Hope you weren't too tired after your long journey.

Hello Patrick, thank you for the friend request, I am pleased to accept !!! It was good to meet you last weekend, and even better to get to share 'the stage' with you, it will be good if Geoff posts the video that he made, we will be able to relive our shared music,(and the mistakes as well LOL) What time did you reach home ? I expect that you are young enough not to get as tired as might after such a journey.best wishesJohnH

Hi Blue_Hand,I will not write in Dutch because I think thats impolite to the rest of the forum, although I will curse in that language, of course Smile.gif , which is not that impolite.First thing I want to investigate where to purchase a Mountain Dulcimer as nearby as possible and for a reasonable price, because Im Dutch At the moment I try a very cheap one ( 81.- shipping included), but the frets are already start to flat audible, after just two month of intensive use.(bought at http://www.dwmusicstore.com/santos-mayor-santos-mayor-du10-p-12508.html?language=en&cPath=16_84 ) The instrument works and is very useful as an introduction, at least for me.But where to find a capo?Wout

I love your medieval (and medieval-sounding!) tunes, Blue Hand! Keep them coming, please.

No worry about your tuning being for D#....I can transcribe down to D no problem. Thanks! I may try this tune on my bowed psaltery first! :)

Blue Hand,I love your play of Mittelalterliche Totentanz and look forward to hearing more of your tunes!

I just love your new tune Mittelalterliche ! :DDid you compose it, or is it a real old one?What instrument did you play it on, and what tuning did you use, please?Do I have your permission to try to learn to play it on my bowed psaltery and on my little epinette des Vosges when i get it?It's so lovely.

Hi, Patrick, and welcome to FOTMD! In your photo I see you're playing with a quill; quills and mountain dulcimers go well together. :)
