Cold Frosty Morning. This for James, who sorta remined me that I had this instrument sitting under a bed in its case !

musician/member name:
Duration: 00:02:12
ZOOM Handy Video Recorder, African Mahogany (with Cherry fretboard) Early Virginian replica 'D' ended, mean tone scaled dulcimer, 26" VSL, strung with 0.011, 0.012, plain steel, and 0.022 nickle wound strings, tuned C'F'C', capo'd 1st fret (D'G'D'), 'A' Dorian ? Sorry about the foul ups, time still at a premium, so half an hour to spare means a one off 'take'.

Cold Frosty Morn indeed as it is heading to 40 below zero F. with the wind chill in the next couple of days. Finally I began to get a beginning sense of playing this. Since it's not coming out so well, guess that means I need a new dulcimer, LOL! You sure do a nice job with this one. It's been putting me up a wall since I first heard you "whip it off". One of the tags is "mean". Mean indeed.

That mean tone fretting drives me wild, it is so much cleaner sounding.

Tut tut Mr Shaw, this is a tune that I first learnt sat at your knee, could never get it quite right then, abeit I was usually trying to play it sans noter ! (the 'run downs' are a bit muddy ?) thanks for watching, I hope tp see you in March all being well ??? (fingers crossed)

Chuckle! Brian, I think it would be fair comment to say that most of what I offer to share could be done differently, thank you for the comment. Much appreciated !


Brian G.
02/14/14 08:19:04AM @brian-g: appears I hadn't comment on this yet. So just let me say I loved it. This is a tune I've always liked (though I think I've heard it done slightly differently?) but haven't learned. I think I will learn it now. :)

Always a pleasure to hear you, John Henry.

That was great! I just might have to work on that one - and learn to use a noter! I am inspired now!

I'm still thinking on it JH. I would love to have a dulcimer like this. It may be worth eating Spam for one month. I keep my eye on that Wartz bunch. I'm not sure they can be trusted, LOLGrin.gif
