I've always liked this tune. McSpadden cherry dulcimer tuned 1-5-8 (DAD) and capo'd at the 1st fret.

I've been away for awhile and don't know how I missed this. I've been working on this achingly beautiful song for quite awhile...little sing. It's so beautiful, thanks for recording it. Maybe I'll be able to actually make it through all the way to record at some point. Thanks for some inspiration.

Thanks Marion! Do you mean where do I get the music for these tunes? If so, I get them from many places. Some I just learn by ear (I have a fairly large celtic and folk music collection), or from music or tab books, or most commonly, from the internet. There are thousands of tunes available online. :)

very nice too - do you have a 'source' where all these tunes come from Brian?

Hello Brian! It's a pleasure to hear you again on this site, we missed you! I knew this tune as the melody of "The Valley Lay Smiling" played on a 1982 LP by Jake Walton and Roger Nicholson . I love it!

That's really nice, Brian. Great playing, as always. And that's a striking melody.
