I'm sending a hug to you John Henry, from across the ocean...
John, I enjoyed your playing Veni, Veni, Emmanuel for the Advent calendar. Thank you for sharing it with us.
"The dulcimer sings a sweet song."
Not discarded, JH... never! Your delightful epinette simply inspired me to have more than one! At the moment I have yours tuned to a Dorian mode tuning and it's sooo haunting and resonant... yours has a richer resonance than the pretty (and vain) new little sister.
I love them both and am playing them often!
Hey, you're famous!
of the new Dulcimer Player News! <3
PS- Having tech woes and can't upload the link. :(
Hope you are happy with the back to back Championship, sorry about being party poopers in relation to Grand Slam. No doubt they celebrated well into the night. Best wishes to you John, Val.
The English Rugby are in Town this weekend after seeing them play last weekend, we are expecting a blizzard too.
Here is is:https://youtu.be/RyGXSiFIjzw Couldn't figure out how to add a video on this new site. What a nuisance. Computer going down for a few days, going into withdrawal as we speak.
Absolutely, I've been working on that one. It will be on uke. Thanks for the sweet comment.
John, it seems I cannot send you a private message unless you follow me. I am following you but that does not seem to count. If you add me, I can send you a PM with me email in it
Where are you John, If you can tell me how to to PM I will send you direct email contact
Are there any get togethers coming up I could come along to. I need to up my game and do more with my dulcimer and get involved with a few more people who play. I am feeling a bit isolated and stuck in what I do
Hi John, just surfacing from Dulcimer lack and wanting to get going again. Is there anything coming up in Bristol area that I might come along to
could you click follow me so that I could send you a PM?....I have some questions about your "Virginia style" dulcimer that you made. I just got a chance to play one of the originals and am interested in chatting a bit about yours.
Hi John - love the new video with the violin bow.
Christopher is performing some of his songs in a live set on Cambridge 105 7pm tomorrow night. here is a link if you fancy a listen
ps i have no idea how to send individual messages n this new website - hence the post here.
JH you did the same thing I did - you though you clicked "approve followers" like it meant go ahead and approve them for you. But it means you have to approve them. So on your page you'll see all these people looking to be approved. Somehow unclick it when it comes up again.
John Henry, to add a youtube video in the new site, you need to copy/paste the entire URL of the YT video from your browser window . That includes the entire "http:" part. Don't use the "embed/share" feature within YT...just copy paste the whole address from your browser window. Hope im making it clear..? There are other ways, but I think that's the easiest way to add a youtube video now.
JH- I do understand that you are seeing your chatbar half cut off, and the top menu area too- this problem has to do with your computer/broswer display settings somehow- you'd have to get someone to help you with that. I guess what Im really asking is have you been ABLE to actually enter the chatrooms and chat yet? You should be able to click towards the lef tof the bar where it says "Chatrooms" and pick a room with people in it to 'enter' and chat with. Have you tried yet?
Here's a tip: on this new site, you will be adding your media stuff from your profile page. So, if you want to add a video, you go to your profile page and click on your page's Video TAB, or your Video module's little "show all" link. Either way gets you to YOUR fotmd videos, where you will see a large + (plus sign) button to add a new video...either youtube or vimeo. Same is true for adding audio, or photos, or Events.
Forums, however, can be added from the Forums area. And group discussions of course would be added when you are within the group.
Hey John Henry, I just was wondering- have you been able to get into the chatrooms yet? Let me know if you are having problems with that, we can maybe help get you on properly. Do you have access now to the chat bar, and can you log into a chatroom? xox
Yay! John Henry is here!!!!!
Good to hear from you John, Val.
