Dulcimer Three Blind Mice all jazzed up
4 strings: DAAd - not equidistant. Just playing around last night thinking about simple songs to play along with newcomers.
Dear Cynthia, They say laughter is therapeutic and listening and watching your video at 2 a.m. in the morning actually made me laugh out loud and put a smile on my face. Luckily, my wife who was in the other room, didn't hear me. If she had asked why are you laughing, I don't think she would have believed me if I said:"I am laughing at "Three Blind Mice all Jazzed Up."
Thanks Helen. This one is my very favorite. Of course you can play my version here, it's tons of fun. I thought you had missed this and of all my mess, this seemed most like you which is why I pinged you. So much music so little time left...
How did I miss this Cynthia.......I LOVE IT! Very funky. I muck around with DAda , playing slowly because I love the sort of late nightjazz feel it has to it..........I got to get my groove going like you! Can I borrow this version from you my friend?
Glad you like this it was so fun to do, and I'll put Rudolph in the will for you. I hope we meet one day.
Oh and I love Rudolph too!!!
Cynthia - you crack me up......and I love your version of the rodent song....
Cynthia, I agree. Think of all the different keys and timings one could do it in. Those rodent triplets will never be the same.
Thanks Gary. I was thinking what fun it would be to have a blog going of Three Blind Mice videos.
Thanks. You two could have some fun with Jazzy Mice on that walnut butternut top Courting. I'm trying to get Greta to play with me so we can get one too.
That's neat, Cynthia!
Thanks Rob. Like many things in my life, it is the fruit of bad luck and misunderstanding. I thought you tuned that way, so I tried it, quickly realized I had misunderstood, but started fooling with it. Now I'm writing a slow waltz on the same idea, different tuning. You have no idea the monster you've unleashed with this idea...
That was indeed Jazzed Up. Very good.
Well thank you Lisa, and yes a less than 10 second nod though, I'm learning. I've been sent to the office before but only once in both cases, I'm a quick study on getting the ruler to the hand! But a bit rebellious, so expect many 10 sec nods, just cause I can. Sire hope you post something for Christmas...
This was real cute Cynthia- festive, fun, and educational as well! You really get your groove on here!
(and was that my imagination, or was there a little nod to Drummer Boy at the end?- impressive!)
Hi Cynthia, I have never thought of posting a video in Rockin' in the Free World. I do a lot of songs with copyright, including some of Jean Ritchie's. Maybe when I run out of public domain songs to post.
Sorry about the video the other day Ken, I wasn't sure since it was just part of the song. Why don't you do that song and post the link to it in Rockin' in the Free World? I love the idea of the seeing eye crickets.
Glad you enjoyed this Ken. I had more fun with this and even more fun watching my student with a student (another student Lynch dulcimer) play it with me.
Hi Cynthia. I really like what you did with this, very nice iprov. Good playing! I understand those three blind mice are getting seeing-eye crickets for Christmas.
