This was played at Wartz n All on Saturday. Had to learn it, so I sat on the porch and gave it a go. Tuned DAD and missing my noter, You can tell that...

Glad ya liked it Jim. Don't care too much for playing without a noter, but I gave it a go. (I went back to my noter and apologized)63.gif

Thanks for sharing this video, Jim. I wondered how that tune went. It's included in my dulcimer club's music, but we haven't played it since I started, so this gives me a good idea. Well done!

Steve, the dulcimer was made by a Wade Honeycutt from TN. # 87.

I have a sign above the door that reads, "Welcome to the Porch" Great place to sit in the summertime.

Glad ya like it Brian.

Very nice Jim! I learned it with a slightly different melody but I really love this one.

I've liked this tune ever since the first time I heard it. I might have to re-visit it. Thanks for sharing

I like your dulcimer.What is it? Like the porch and swing too!!

I think I'd get blown off a porch today if I had one.Its a tad windy here today with the tail end of Domingo blowing in off the Irish Sea

Jim, thanks so much for playing this tune, I had the first part timed very differently and I knew it wasn't right but rather than chasing up a version on here or Youtube it just went into the too hard basket. Now I can resurrect it. Very brave of you to venture out the front door without your noter, I notice you had the dog there to keep you safe on the dark side. Nicely played.

James, it's a dulcimer that I bought from someone right here on FOTMD a few years ago. I should play it more often. Rob, it's a small branch, but it's a start.

Well, Jim, you done good. Glad to see you're branching out.

Good job Jim! What dulcimer are you using in this video?

Nice job, Jim. That tune's been on my "to learn" list for a while. I might have to pilfer a bit from your playing.

No noter, felt like I lost my best friend. Had to apologize to it after the video. The dark side is nice to visit every now and again, but I don't want to stay there.43.gifThanks for watching, Frank and Ken.

What -no noter and DAD also. Jim is that really you? Looks like you and your porch. Sounds real good.

DAd? Going over to the dark side. And without a noter no less! Jim, I'm worried about you. You did a fine job. It must be warmer in western PA than here in central PA. It's too cold sit on my porch today.
