G'day there Charles.. i always pop a reply up on the video clip page when folks find the time to comment... I just realised that people might not reallise its there. I want to thank u so much for following my music and for your kind words.

I really like your work...........it is outstanding.....my pint of  Guinness so to speak.  Question:  What sort of recording mic or software are you using?  What I have is just lousy all the way around and it needs to be replaced.  What do you recommend?  Your work comes through loud and clear with little or no distortion.

Hi Charles...Thanks for the listen and kind words on "Merlin's Joy". I play it like a guitar..so much easier as I am a guitar player mostly.

Really love what I have heard of your work so far. As Arnold said: "I'll be back"

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

Welcome Charles. I love noter/drone too and there are some great players here for it - Robin Clark has a video of advanced techniques, John Henry is terrific, Randy Adams just to mention a few. You will be inspired beyond belief.
