Hey Jeffrey- this is a real funny coincidence:
Yesterday, Brian and I sat down to play some tunes, and Brian suddenly remembered that years ago we used to play Sal's Got Mud Between Her Toes, and that we have not played it for years now. So we played it and had a good time and put it back into our active list of tunes to play. Then, about one hour after that I logged onto FOTMD just to check in, and found that you had just then "Liked" that very tune in my audio clips from years ago. How weird is that? ...but also cool! Thanks!
Jeffrey, mostly, people on fotmd upload their videos to Youtube, which shrinks them to a proper size automatically. Then they add their Youtube video to FOTMD.
You can't upload a video to FOTMD directly from your computer anyway- you have to first have the video on either Youtube or Vimeo...then using that URL/link you can ad it to FOTMD's video section.
Does that help answer your question?
Jeffrey, i just wanted to say Thank You so much for becoming a Patron Member whose generous donations help support our FOTMD site.
Thank Jeff his eye is on the sparrow is what you mentioned I should look up.
Jeff we talked on Sunday and I recommended looking up the blackest crow. You should check out a version posted by Janene Miller a few days ago on fotmd where she finger dances and strums I think that would be a fair description. You should also check out a version by Laura Elder it was posted on fotmd about six years back but I cannot find it here now. I recommend looking her up on you tube she has some really good videos up. You also said I should look up a tune but for the life of me I cannot remember what it was please let me know.
I will have your dulcimer on Wednesday. Thought you might like to know.
"The dulcimer sings a sweet song."
Jeffrey, Rob told me that you were looking for my email. Here it is: klongfield (at) embarqmail (dot) com. Don't forget to replace the (at) with @ and the (dot) with . Looking forward to hearing from you.
I think there is a group in Binghamton, ny area.... Have you tried looking on Everything dDulcimer? That site lists all clubs by area. I think the McSpadden site also has a list. Also, yes, ask around at Cranberry. I'll be there Sunday morning... See you!
my chat isnt working either
Jeffrey, If you don't see the chat bar at the bottom of your page or a blue bubble that lets you open it up then you can't do chat either. I was able to do it for a bit yesterday afternoon with Jim and Dan but the bar disappeared and the bubble. I can no longer do chat on this site. Apparently John Henry is having similar problems.
All this time I thought we were already friends, lol
Jeff, here is a great link to strumming practice video that Paul Sykes did;
I don't do the last ones he shows, they are difficult and I am not ready.
Strum lightly and have fun! Let me know how it goes for you.
