I am primarily a Church musicians  singing, playing drums and ukulele. I also play a bit of banjo. I like most types of music but it seems that I am drawn to early music, that is, from before 1940.

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

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.
