Thanks so much Helen, it's one of my favorite songs now, since I learned it from John Henry, that maven of all things dulcimer. You'd love that Backyard no 6.5, just intonation. Strange but lately it's all I'm playing. I think the just is healing. You just need one more just...I'm getting Robert Schuler's new one, he has it in the forum under My New Just Intonation dulcimer. He is very nice to deal with. I ordered it on chat! You'll hear it soon I think. You take care of yourself...we need you.

Carrie thank you so much, that's just what I was aiming for, and so good to see you on here. You should hear it with a quill. I love it all whiney and old sounding like that. I'd love to play it at Cade's Cove, LOL.

Cynthia, I know your part of the world really got hit this year, and I feel for you all. Maybe a traveling preacher man could have come through spouting fire and brimstone, might have melted off the snow..

Glad you enjoyed it Ken. Still have the 3 foot high bank from what fell off the roof, but yesterday the peepers sang for the first time this spring so it is verily here...lawd what a looooong hard winter here. Coldest March on record.

Nice going there, Cynthia. At first, by the title, I thought you were refering to the trails and tribulations of playing the dulcimer in your backyard while sitting in the snow...Grin.gif

Thank you John Henry, and for the rest of you, here is his lovely version that inspired me. Must be he has a fountain in the background.

No TMB this, and I can't play like you, but you are an on-going source of light.

Oh my Gordon thanks for the kind words. I wish I had a hundred of these things to give away at Halloween with a month of lessons included. John Henry did a fabulous version of this, and that's where I got it, listening to his.

Lexie being a dog person, I love to hear he's humming along, and that he enjoys Gordon's singing as well, yes, a compliment indeed.

Great old timey sounding tune, thanks for strumming, singing and promoting. If there ever was an ambassador for the mountain dulcimer, it is you.

I don't often comment that Smiley dog sings with video's cause I don't want folks to take it as an insult, It certainly isn't. He has always liked singing to music and it is a great compliment and I am glad you see it as such.

When I have the energy to dance, Smiley has also been known to dance with me, he is a fabulous partner!69.gif
