Groundhog on Mountain Dulcimer

musician/member name: Music
Duration: 00:01:57
In honor of Groundhog's Day. The tuning is daA (low A). Stephen Seifert taught me this haunting tuning in a workshop I went to. He said he learned it from David Schnaufer. I think it's lovely.

Very nicely played. I have enjoyed watching this video many times.

Very nice, nuanced playing.  You have quite a facility with the flatpick.

Thank you Steve and Richard.  I find it so often to be true that tunes typically played quickly sound so lovely slowed down.  I'm glad y'all enjoyed this one! 

I am really enjoying this tuning and hoping to find other tunes that sound good with it.  The two that Stephen Seifert taught us in this tuning were Going to Boston, and St. Kilda's Lullabye, a tune by David Schnaufer.

That’s really lovely

I hadn’t realised how pretty this tune was until I listened to your slowed down version
