A little kitchen music from the cottage...or maybe it's simply a touch of cabin fever. Lol! Happy spring, Bill!

That was great, love what you can do with the Dulciborn. I know I love mine and it gets a lot of looks when I take mine out of the case and play it. Will Isee you at Evart,Mi this coming July? Maybe playing with our friend, Bing Futch?  Love you too playing together.🎼🎵🎶

Thank you, John!  I have to admit, I was not familiar with "Thumbs" Carlyle so I looked him up.  Wow - what an incredible musician he was!  A real one-of-a-kind.  I love his style!  Thanks for telling me about him.  smile

So that's what a Dulciborn is.  I'm not that far from I-75.  Shout loud enough & I might ask to see it close up.

Hi Lois!  Yes indeed, we are in close proximity, when I'm down state.  I spend quite a bit of time up north.  So, I pass right through your area then, right?  Next time I'll unroll the window (provided it's not sleeting & snowing) and shout out to you -  real loud so you can hear me over the 75 traffic.  Lol!  I'm with you on the percussion.  Maybe it's a Motown thing, huh?  winker   The instrument is a Dulciborn made by Gold Tone.  It's a hybrid.  A mountain dulcimer fretboard on the body of a Weissenborn style hollow neck guitar.  I have a lot of fun with it.  It certainly has racked up a bunch of miles as it goes north with me each and every time!  jive

How fun! You've got a great groove going there.

Watching the video, I thought about  guitar player "Thumbs" Carlyle, a "Nashville Cat" of the 1960s-70s. He played standard guitar, but in his lap, like a dulcimer or steel guitar. He was Roger Miller's guitar player when Miller had a TV show.

Wow!  I've been working on this same piece with variations, but that percussion track adds so much.   You're near me in the metro area (yeah, supposedly as of tomorrow summer's officially 75 days until it starts, but will settle for spring a.s.a.p.)!  Besides being electrified (& electrifying) what is your instrument officially called as it's more than a straight dulcimer.

Thanks so much, Ariane!  I really appreciate that.  smiler   Thank you, Dusty!  It was a fun way to combat my cabin fever.   krazy   It beat just sitting there and watching the snow ever so sloooowly pretending to melt.  Lol!
