Hi John! I have all this written down somewhere, but I believe I use 20/14/10 and I believe the VSL is 29". I do know that I'm tuned CGC for this tune!

Linda, regarding tempo, I think on these early music pieces especially it is a matter of preference. On Randy's Elizabethan album, he and Cyntia do "Lesson for Two Lutes" at a slow tempo; but Cyntia and Ruth recorded the same piece a few years later on one of their albums at a rather quick tempo. Both sound great to me!

I havent met him either. I think he's some sort of water engineer or something. Definitely not visible on the dulcimer scene these days.

Do you have Randy's book of classical guitar pieces for dulcimer? Cyntia studied with him back in the day. She has tons of his tab that never got published. Cyntia is also a magnificent player/composer/arranger too.

I have heard of her and may have met get when I was there for Summer solaceway back there. I had recorded it back before 2000 but then got his tape and had played it too fast. Hope he never heard it lol , embarrassing !!It was fun fast tho. Tho not appropriate I'm sure.

No. I used Randy's as well. I study with Cyntia Smith. She was the "other" dulcimer playing the duets on his Elizabethan CD.

I played Randy Wilkersons. I found some really old dulcimer books back in the 90s and and there were 2 of his in the pile. I thought I died and went to heaven. Lol. But that was my favorite . Did you do your own?
