J'ai Passé Devant Ta Porte with dulcimer and vocals

musician/member name: Dusty T
Duration: 00:03:14
Traditional Cajun waltz sung in French. (What can I do? I studied French, not Cajun.) I am playing a lacewood Modern Mountain Dulcimer tuned DAd. I learned this tune from the classic Balfa/Savoy/Menard album En Bas du Chêne Vert/Under the Green Oak Tree.

Merci pour avoir cout, Joe.

To share with my local dulcimer group, I created tab for the melody of this tune, which you can find here. As you can see, when I sing I just strum the chords. And then I add two verses of what is supposed to be improvisation, but I planned it all out and play it basically the same way every time.

I still so love this Dusty. I showed it to my friend to show her what could 'really' be done with a dulcimer. She was very impressed....as am i...still.

Dusty--the tabbed we used came from Paul Andry, who is a member here (he also has his email posted, which he might want to reconsider). Anyway, you might contact him and see what he can do.Smile.gif

Merci, Steve, and thanks, Jan!

I would be interested in other dulcimer arrangements of this song. I was asked by my local group to put together some tab for it.

Great arrangement, Dusty--and that strummin' is superb! I really enjoyed this. I've played it with the group in Tucson that Kristi's in.
