Thanks, @John-Gribble.  It's a really nice melody. I just try to stay out of the way.

@butch-ross, I've never seen Stephen Foster and Steven Tyler in the same place at the same time.  Makes you wonder . . .  And hey, maybe someone could work up a Sweet Emotion/Gentle Annie medley.

@leny-sue, I tabbed this arrangement out for my local (now online and not so local) dulcimer group.  Send me a personal message and I'd be happy to share it with you.  The only real trick is moving to the middle string for the melody so that you can easily reach the seventh fret on the melody string when the melody makes that jump.

Instructional videos of tunes such as this one would be very much appreciated and useful ie. chords used, fingerpicking pattern, etc. Any possibility of that happening?

Very nicely done! Who knew Steven Tyler wrote such beautiful music.

Thanks, BJ.  I'm really enjoying this dulcimer a lot.  I am especially impressed with its sustain when playing higher up the fretboard.  And it looks stunningly beautiful, although that doesn't come out in this tiny video I posted.

Nicely done. Great sounding dulcimer. I love my Bill Taylor. It just gets better with time. Thanks for sharing with us.

Thanks, @sgarrity. It's a pretty nice dulcimer.  We're just getting to know each other.

Thanks so much for listening, folks.  Stephen Foster composed a pretty tune. I just try to stay out of the way.

Sweet Dusty. If I could play like that, I'd starve to death. I'd never stop to eat.
