Rock the Cradle Joe - Grant Olson

musician/member name: Music
Duration: 00:02:14
This is the second song I played in the first round of the 2019 National Mountain Dulcimer Championship.

The song is "Rock the Cradle Joe", which is a traditional fiddle tune. I learned this version from a fiddle tune book for dulcimer by Lois Hornbostel. The third time through, I changed to the minor key, and the last time I added lots of eighth notes for fun. The tuning is the typical DAd.

I'm getting dizzy listening to that last verse.  Whew!  That's fantastic. I liked the minor version, too.  Wonderful stuff!
