Redwing on mountain dulcimer

musician/member name: Dusty T
Duration: 00:01:20
This traditional fiddle tune was used by Woody Guthrie as the melody for "Union Maid." My version here owes a lot to another dulcimer version by R.N. Lackey. I am playing a Modern Mountain Dulcimer made of Lacewood and tuned DAd.

Steve, Sam, Rob, and Terry, thanks for listening.

And Rob, I just listened again to your version and realize how many interesting chords I cut out. I'll have to keep working on this one.

 Thanks so much, Steven, Robin, and Gail.  Robin started a thread on this tune in the Call the Tune Group. You might check that out for other versions of the tune, including Robin's duet with her fella.
