Cherry Dulcimer Song

musician/member name: Music
Duration: 00:02:20
Took a while to compose this[10 years-I had the first four lines that long ago and didn't know where to go with it].Daresay I've borrowed liberally from other sources,who doesn't?A friend said it reminded her of Townes van Zant's "Dollar Bill Blues'...yep,then I started thinking about "If I"songs;If I...'were a blackbird","were a carpenter","could turn back the hands of time","listen long enough to you',"had my way',etc.Luckily there's no copyright on "If I",laugh.

So cool!  What a great tune.  And speaking of copyrights . . . you might want to copyright that tune yourself before I start sharing it at dulcimer festivals.

Well done, my friend.

Thanks for the kind comments.Archetypes for sure-I was able to finish it when I started thinking about all the folk songs I'd heard about shape shifting,trees talking.Also,I do have a fascination with wood.I've had people bring me their grandfather's fiddle to play and the music just pours out[often out of character for me]as if the wood is remembering[cue music from the 60's t.v. show"twilight zone",laugh].

love that

Nice!  I like the imagery of the memories singing through the wood.  A firm root in some archetypes there.
