Last eve as I wandered quiet near
To the border's of my little farm
A beautiful maiden appeared
Whose loveliness caused my heart's harm

By her daring and love smitten sour
And the words from her sweet lips that came
To meet her I raced the field o'er
But for Ireland I'd not tell her name

If this beauty but my words would heed
The words that I speak would be true
I'd help her in every need
And indeed all her work I would do

To win one fond kiss from my love
I'd read her romances of fame
Her champion I daily would prove
But for Ireland I'd not tell her name

There's a beautiful stately young maid
At the nearing of my little farm
She's welcoming kind unafraid
Her smile is both childlike and warm

Her gold hair in masses that grows
Like amber and sheen is that same
And the bloom in her cheeks like the rose
But for Ireland I'd not tell her name

Hello again!  I just now saw your message.  If I come across anyone seeking an instrument such as that I will be glad to steer them your way.

Dewey, accepted your request, thank you. If you can post your tune privately to me well and good, if not post to A new tune to learn and we will listen, if there is a problem with the tune which I don't envisage it can be removed. Best wishes Val.

Thanks for the welcome Dewey. I am so pleased I came across this website. Still finding different things in it. Technology is great! There are not too many mountain dulcimer players in oz (maybe they are shy and are Everywhere!) Nah, I am pretty sure they are a bit thin on the ground here. I like your story on coming across the ladies playing by the lake. Its a lovely mental picture. Still waiting for my md to arrive -not far away now. Helen

Hi Dewey. Thanks for the welcome message. I am so glad I found this website. It sureto seems aa friendly place. You dont see many mountain dulcimers in oz, so any tips and advice will be really helpful. I need to work out the time difference between here and a few places in the States so I know when best to catch up with people. I know oz seems to be a day and a bit ahead. Darn that international dateline. Helen

Thanks Dewey, that picture was taken up in Alaska. Nothing like that down here in Bayou country.

I just call 'em the way i see 'em Dewey..and It's My Way is a delight. One of the coolest things is those awesome little transition chords you throw in just before you go into another part. I LOVED that! Makes the song really fancy and special. You are vastly more comfortable on the dulcimer than i am..it's all quite new to me and i still don't practice much. Lots to learn for sure. I never really cared much for the instrument as my exposure to them was minimal and i could never hear them that well...even worse these days as i have a severe hearing deficit. Then i put a condenser mic in front of mine and listened thru headphones and it opened up a whole new world for me. I love that mountaian sound. I don't have a pickup or use an amp...i just mic it and run that into my standalone recorder..a Boss BR1200CD. It has great onboard preamps that boost the signal nicely. I use no DAW software like most folks do (Pro Tools, Sonar, Cubase, and other recording programs) I assume you record with just the mic on the video camera? i couldn't help but think how a great song/performance like It's My Way could sound with a bit of studio magic. Any questions you have regarding that sort of thing feel free to ask...i'd be happy to share what i know even tho i have only been into digital home recording now for 8 years and it's just a hobby. Fun one tho!

Hey Dewey! I have pics of Blossom posted in my profile pics. I just LOVE making music with her. Never get tired of hearing those strings sing! lol

Hi Dewey..Really enjoyed "It's My Way". What a beautiful arrangement..sweet melody, and incredibly good playing. You "hear" alot more than the vast majority of dulcimer players. That song is full of amazing little touches. Did you do the backer on the keyboard yourself as well?

Thanks for the comments on my studio. The playing you hear on my page is indeed me...and yes, i play those few instruments pictured but my main instruments are guitars. My recording studio in my cabin loft has allowed me to finally record all the songs i've written in my life, which i have posted at my website. I write in many genres, as you will see if you have a chance to stop by for a listen. I strive for quality recordings but the real gold is and always will be in the song itself.

Let me know whenever you post new work Dewey...i really like your music.

Hi Dewey,

Yes - I can feel the warmth! What a lovely bunch of people. I wonder if it is because playing the dulcimer is sort of passive (unlike some forms of guitar music for example which can sound aggressive). I would guess that the very name dulcimer might come from the latin 'dulce' which,if I can cast my mind back to the beginning of time when I was at school, meant sweetly. There must also be a type of personality drawn towards dulcimer playing; nice, considerate, caring and courtly folk. What do you think?

Hi Dewey! Yes, goats are excellent people! lol
I hope to learn to play a lot of tunes once my dulcimer is finished. Morgan Wright (here on the forum) is making me a lefthanded, hourglass dulcimer. Can't wait to get it and find others to do some pickin' and strumin' with. =D
