I was introduced to this tune a long time ago by John Shaw. Here played noter/drone (noter being the 'pointy bit' of a turkey feather) on a Mahogany, Cedar, and Rosewood, meantone fretted dulcimer , tuned DAd, and strung with 0.011, 0.011, and 0.020 plain steel strings

Hey Geekling, thanks for watching, enjoy this holiday, and give Keitha smackeroo of a kiss from me, for looking after you so well, such a task is not so easy as it would seem, as I have found out this last eleven months or so!

best wishes to you both

Thank you for watching Karen ! (you may have noticed that I sometimes position my dulcimer on a 'dropped' left knee, this in response to someone some time ago who wanted to see what my left hand does ? It alsogives the instrumentsomedownwards slant,thus allowing any acculmulated moisture to drain freely thro' the spit hole, which is to be found on the underside heel of the scrollhead ! 3.gif )

Excellent playing JH, but I can't believe you didn't put a spit valve on that dulcimer LOL

Glad you enjoyed it Jordan, perhaps you'll "tell 'yer Ma" about it (a favourite of mine too!)

Dana, I am sure that you could use a noter (assuming that you have one?) Give me bed and board for a month (or two?) and I'd be happy to provide some good 'ole side by side 'tuition' 3.gif

Rob! There's a wealth of 'June Apple's' on Youtube, mine ain't too much like any of 'em, lol, but you are welcome to it !

thanks for watching

Well, John Henry, you've done it again. There's another tune I have to learn. You were getting a good slide on that noter; made a real purty sound, it did.
