The Entertainer - Grant Olson

musician/member name: Music
Duration: 00:02:44
This is the first song I played in the beginning round of the recent 2019 National Dulcimer Championship.

The song is "The Entertainer", a ragtime song composed by Scott Joplin. My arrangement is based on Janita Baker's arrangement for a 4-string diatonic dulcimer. I modified the piece for my "almost chromatic" dulcimer, tuned to the standard DAd.

I’m pretty sure I could practice 24/7 for a hundred years and never do this. Great job!

As Dusty mentioned, the harmonies are excellent.

You must be the love child of Scott Joplin and Jean Ritchie!  That's really nice. I love some of the harmonies and the changes in tempo and dynamics.  Very expressive!
