"Hi Dusty.  You're too kind. I'm glad you liked the video/tune, though.  It's one of my favorite O'Carolan tunes and I wonder why it's not played more often."

Brian, I imagine you haven't been following the Everything Dulcimer discussion since you succeeded in your download.  I've used the same HTTrack program to mirror the site on a flashdrive.  It comes up with a .wrc extension.  I have yet to find a way to be able to open it.  What am I missing besides my sanity!?!?boggling

Thanks for the welcome, Brian! I notice that you have the 1.5 fret, which I don't (yet). I'll have a listen now and then to remind me what I'm working towards, and someday I'll have a dulcimer that can play up to my ambitions - even if my talent is lacking. :)

Hi Brian, I am a new dulcimer player and also new to the forum. I found a thread that showed you playing (beautifully!) Norwegian Wood. It's also one of my favorite Beatles songs, and I wonder if you still have tablature that you can share?  Thank you.

Hey, Brian, James's  monthly tune challenge is in the Call the Tune group.  (I saw where you'd wondred about it.)

Hi Brian, thank you for listening to my "Wildwood Flower" video. Yes it is my very first piece on the MD. I will admit, I'm struggling with a lot of chords, but I'm persevering - the sound of the MD is soooo addictive! Again, thank you for the encouragement.

Hi Brian,

I'd be happy to build you one. Why don't you e-mail me at kbloom1@triad.rr.com and we can talk about it in depth!

Here you go Brian. This list was mostly compiled by Sara Johnson with a few I added. The highlighted ones are ones I already know or are planning on learning in the near future.

Enjoy!18th%20century%20music.docx

Hi, what tuning are you using for The Sounds of Silence? I capoed at 1 and was going to try to play along with your video, BUT you must be different that DAD

Gaday Brian. Thanks for your input on my left hand discussion. Your video does demonstrate what you said very well. I think my beginners enthusiasm has seen me diving into songs without first working out the most efficient way to play them. Rather than trying to change how I play those first songs I think from now on I will make a rule of planning the most efficient way to play each new tune I take on. I watched a few of your videos. Oh, to be able to play like that one day. I really enjoyed them. Thanks again for your help.

Palestine was great and their was a lot of great music and jams. It'll probably be a few days before we get everything together so we can post stuff, but that's what long weekends are for. Glad to know everything is OK with you. Talk with you later.Grin.gif

Brian, my thanks for your kind comment on Nonsuch, and also for the fact that you took the trouble to 're-post' it. I do not have the faintest notion on what that entails, I can make a reasonable dulcimer, and sometimes get a decent tune or two from one, but can barely cope with this thing lol

best wishes

John

Your comment means a lot Brian, for I appreciate your musical attributes. I just do what I do ,lol !

Brian I'd appreciate a copy of the old TAB if you can find it.. I don't read music but know the song so I can probably figure it out.. i'm playing it right now from the fiddle tune, I managed to sort out thefingeringto pluck it on the melody string.. ( ok but far from the best).

Thanks

Kerry
