Johnny Don't Get Drunk - Grant Olson


musician/member name: Music
Duration: 00:01:40
description:
This is the second song I played in the finalist round of the 2019 National Mountain Dulcimer Championship.

For this song, I started with an arrangement by my teacher, Karen Mueller. Then I added some parts in different octaves and also the minor version.

This is a chromatic dulcimer I made myself. In this song it is tuned to DAAd. I made this dulcimer first for "Rondo Alla Turca", which I also competed with. In "Johnny Don't Get Drunk", I did not really need all four strings, though I make use of them sometimes, to make the melody easier. Most of the time, the extra A string just rings out as a drone, which gives the song a unique sound.
