Having just begun to play the dulcimer I was delighted to discover your videos for beginners on You Tube and from there your website, from which I've downloaded "The Water is Wide". So this short message is simply to say 'Thank you' for your generosity in providing lessons and tabs to get me started.

Response to my message has been overwhelming. Thank you all for the welcome. I had been on the site a few years. Life kicked in with family. Now, by His grace, all is better and time to get to playing/learning.

Finally found the style of playing I have been looking for. Thank you! Now need to practice, practice, practice. Dulce Melos are there books, video etc. to expand on this style.

Hi Jessica Thanks for your reply. I've just acquired a soprano rebec, (with a wonderful "medieval sound") but haven't had any time yet to start to learn it. I haven't had much time with my dulcimer either! as I've been concentrating on adding the C recorders to my "learning curve". Our little recorder ensemble has been playing the two cantigas that we've found so far with a recorder ensemble arrangement, and some medieval and Sephardic pieces - all of which we love. What we want to do is start to include the m.dulcimer and rebec into our ensemble. None of us have much knowledge or experience in adapting or arranging scores to suit this combination. Do you play other instruments as well? Anyway, yes, let's keep in touch and we can share whatever we find. It's not an easy search, that's for sure! By the way, "Strumelia" on this site has also recently bought a rebec , and there's a thread about it under the "adventures with other instruments" in the forum section of FMD.

Hello Jessica, so glad that you found your way to us !

Hello Jessica I just found your you tubes of Hinah Ma Tov and the Cantiga. Beautifully done. Any time you can share any scores or tab sources, I'd love it - for any of the Cantigas, Israeli, or other medieval or Middle Eastern, Sephardic, etc music. Thanks so much for your lovely playing.

I just caught your video of when irish eyes are smiling on the tail end of Linda's B's video medley of danny boy and my wild irish rose. This in turn led me to your youtube channel which i have subscribed to so i don't miss any of your 'posts'. As a a fingerpicker I so admire the way you play your dulcimer - its exactly what i would like to achieve - will be watching out and learning. thanks for the lovely music - it would be great if you posted more here on FOTMD.

Thanks for your reply, and please - call me Judy! I'm very impressed with your version of Carrickfergus. I've listened to others, and they are also good, but your version is how I "hear" that song in my mind, and that's how I would love to be able to play it one day. If you ever have tabs that you'd be able to share, I'd love to see them.Again -- thanks so much for posting the video of your beautiful arrangement.

I just watched your youtube video of Carrickfergus -- one of my favorites. I'm just starting with the MD with the specific goal/hope of one day being able to play such tunes. Your version is lovely -- did you tab/arrange it yourself? Thanks for letting me enjoy it with you.Judy

Hi Jessica,
I just watched some of your videos and i have to compliment you on your arrangements. I think it's great to see someone else trying to play really old music on the dulcimer ;)
Keep on playing!

Hi Jessica,

I just finished watching some of your YouTube videos of you playing 14th century music on your mountain dulcimer. I really enjoyed it. I'd love to see you add these videos to our video section here. They are really wonderful.

Glad you liked my Dulcimer Tale. It was the best $25 I may have ever spent...but how much it has cost me since! I love the instrument and playing it...I need to do some more of it, playing at the jams, record another video...

The Aeolian Harp...that sounds like it could be a good story too...I almost bought one from a consignment store where I did pick up a dulcimer. I resisted on the, it was an auto was for $25, but I figure that I am musically challenged enough without taking on another instrument...maybe! Grin.gif
