900 Miles Stamper Style

musician/member name: Education
Duration: 00:05:38
Randy asked for a clip on the Stamper style of 900 miles. This is my take on the tune.

Very nice, I always enjoy hearing your playing, and now seeing it brings it on home.  


As an aside, I heard a recording of Odetta do it on her late 90's live album To Ella.

 Dan, I thoroughly enjoyed this lesson! I listened to your music post last month of this tune( it was the first one on my playlist) and now seeing it played was very helpful. Thank You!

Dan, I own a copy of ID Stamper's recording in vinyl yet don't have a working record player. . . When Dulcimer Player News put a cut or two from the record on a sampler cd, it sure got me wanting more.  I'm hoping Appalshop will be able to bring the ID Stamper cd out sometime soon!  

Your dulcimer looks and sounds cool-- has that Ike Stamper vibe to it.  Thanks a million for the demo!

Dan, thanks for sharing.  I learned something here, did not even know what a Stamper dulcimer was until now.

Wow Dan, thank you for the demo on the monsterous Stamper dulcimer and all the information on his playing style, nice techniques Dan!nerd

This is great Dan- thanks so much!

That is really slack and low...provides a real jangly sound. 

I do that same 'train whistle on two strings' thing on my fretless banjo.   

Would love to hear/see more about your dulcimers.
