A Herefordshire (UK) folk tune/carol, made popular by Vaughn Williams, here played noter/thumb strum on a John D Tignor Kentucky dulcimer (circa 1970's)...

I've tried to convince her, John, but she is "at that age" where spending some time practicing with Dad is last on her list of things to do!

I've learned to play a few really great tunes that I had never heard before because you played them for us (Bonny at Morn is my favorite, I think). I am always grateful for your postingsSmile.gif

Thank you for watching and making comment Rick ! Yes, I suppose that some of the stuff I play can't be considered as 'run of the mill', but if , as you indicate, it helps people to become aware of something different, and so attempt to play new tunes, that can only be good ?


(I must drop Fiona a line, try and persuade her to guide you thro' another shared posting, lol!)

Catching up on videos again--glad to see/hear this one, John Henry. I really enjoy that you play folk tunes and carols that are "new to me" (and to many others, I am sure). I also appreciate that some of the tunes are specific or traditional to certain areas. Anyways, thanks for posting, as always, and have a Happy New Year!

Thanks Geeks, I reckon using a noter tends to make one 'vocalise' the tune in one's head , hence the appearance of 'feeling' for the melody ?

Yep, definitely on the mend now John. Boxing day here now, we tend to be a day ahead of US cos of the International Dateline and maybe a bit ahead of Uk. I had a nice quiet day with lots of dulcimer and nearly death by h x

Thanks Ben, I did 'wander away' from the noter for a while, but eventually realised the error of my ways !

Pamela, the pleasure is mine ! I too can just about remember ME in cassock, surplice and ruff, together with a 'pipe' organ singing this at midnight mass, and my sons following on did the same !!!
