Thank you so much Sam.  It is a favorite hymn of mine as well.  I'll try to take and upload a picture of it this upcoming week-end.

Nice job James. Excellent noter control. I love this old hymn. That dulcimer looks and sounds fantastic!

Thank you Cindy.  I do too.  I know, it is not traditional baritone tuning, but rather a variant of bagpipe dulcimer tuning, but I do like the sound of and look of it.

thank you kindly Evlensong & Terry.  Much appreciated.  I had just gotten this dulcimer Thursday and that was the first tune I played on it, so I thought that I would record it.
