The Galway Belle

musician/member name: Dusty T
Duration: 00:02:06
I play a traditional Irish polka on a dulcimer tuned DAd with capo at 1, putting me in Em. I learned this tune from a bowed psaltery version by FOTMD member Gregg Schneeman. The dulcimer was made of cherry and redwood by Terry McCafferty.

Thanks, @Jan-Potts.  When I first arranged this tune, I did it without the capo, and that version required far more nimble fingers.   When fumbling around a trying to play it, that proverbial lightbulb illuminated in my dim head, and I realized how much easier it would be with a capo.
