Hi Cindy:

I joined a few years ago but quit playing for awhile. Last summer I purchased a  beautiful new Ron Gibson dulcimer that I love.....so I'm now getting back into it! I'm enjoying the FOTMD site! I play by ear and hoping to learn some chords.

Just one more thumbsup

I have really loved getting to know you from your pics and vids and dulcimers, and I am still enjoying your stories!  ~it was a joy to peruse~  I enjoyed a new hymn to me today that maybe you know or might be interested in, too, "I Want a Principle Within".  I love the YouTube vid of Mike Whang on his guitar, and that's who I wanna be on my dulcimer!

Thank you so much Cindy. I will check out Hymnary.org. I know there has been so much discussion about licensing and public domain songs on here but occasionally I get confused again. My brother has alot of bluegrass music player friends in Nashville and he was telling me that you can put up any song and then mark it Private on your YouTube page and then just invite whoever you want to view it. But I wasn't sure if that sounded right either.

Cindy, good evening. Sorry I missed this until today. First I want to say again that I am so sorry for your loss and think it was wonderful for you to honor your aunt with your dulcimer music.

Next I want to say that I am truly sorry how your video How Great Thou Art was handled. I have quietly and decently contacted people before so they could do what they wanted about it quietly. Frankly especially with a death in the family, I was mortified.

Now the bagpipe - I'm referring only to a bagpipe tuned dulcimer, acquired from our very own James Phillips, tuned Ddd. I really love playing that dulcimer set up with the proper strings to do that, and have played so many songs on it. You'll be interested to know that the bagpipe's sweet and simple sound is Greta's favorite. If she's in the back room and I start playing it, she will come in here and get on her couch to listen better.

And now for some really wonderful news - I have been very interested in a kantele, and found a lovely person, Lynn Austin also here in Vermont, who was willing to build that kit from Musicmakers for me. She is also interested in building one for herself. Well, she finished it, and will be bringing it to my house next week, on a sunny and good driving day! I'm over the moon, and the picture she sent me looked stunning. She is a perfectionist and I think will be worth watching as a luthier. Also a very hard worker.

And now my dear friend, I know you must be tired and sad and want you to know you are in my prayers. You mean a lot, your wonderful music, your sweet soul and your quiet way. Always love seeing your name pop up that you are on, and I send you a little prayer...see if you feel it next time I am on, my best to you always.

Hi Cindy:

The last time I was a clown was back in 1997. Cellphones weren't as common as they are nowadays so I don't have any video clips of that time. I will serious try to locate a descend picture of me from them and post it. I will have to go through some storage boxes because back then nothing was digital or electronic in my world then.

Cindy I'm so sorry for your loss. It's very difficult to play for funerals of people you really love and I admire you for that.

Thank you Cindy, I had a nice Christmas and felt well for 9 days away from home, really enjoyed time with my Mom.

I was delayed getting home cause of a blizzard, icy and drifted roads, oh fridgid temps and wind. It was really fun looking after my Mom, but she showed no interest in me playing and sharing my dulcimer with her. I did practise a tiny bit in the other room.

Hope you and your family had a Happy Christmas and New Year be good and healthy.Grin.gif

Hi Cindy

You left a comment for me about the videos I uploaded recently. Thank you for your kind words of support. You stated you didn't know why you couldn't post at the video site directly. I uploaded them on 12/14/14 and haven't received any comments from anyone on the videos and was feeling kinda sad. I decided to check into it and now feel kinda dumb instead of sad. I never posted a video before and found out on my settings page I hadn't update it to allow members to leave messages. I now have it updated. Thank you for your post to me as it caused me to investigate and correct the situation. Have a very Merry Christmas. TWSmile.gif
