Nothing But The Blood Of Jesus.

musician/member name:
Duration: 00:01:27
Played this time on a replica of an Early Virginia dulcimer,tuned DAd, strung with 0.011, 0.011 plain steel, and a 0.022 Nickle wound. For 'Patty from Virginia', 'cos she asked me to !!! Consider it a late anniversary pressie ! Played partly noter/drone, partly melody/chord, (sorta!) Apologies for bad camera work.

Glad that you enjoyed it Cindy, as I remarked below, a simple tune that lends itself to 'experimentation',does'nt use many notes, sogreat to doodle around with ,IMO !

Chuckle, no fili, this is one that I did'nt bother letting you try (its diatonic) On reflection, perhaps I should have, 'cos its mean tone fretted (goes well with the voice !) and has a slightly shorter VSL (26") than the one you are using !

Thanks for the comment, and it is an easy piece to play, and play around with !

Thank you Brian ! I started out playing the dulcimer with a noter when you were nobut a lad, but then fell in with bad company (sorry JohnS) and spent long years attempting to do what I saw others do so well, all to no avail! After leaving off the HD and returning to my first love, I fell naturally back into noter'drone style, tho' I still go into the closet now and then to play 'the other way'

John Henry - beautiful playing, beautiful dulcimer, just beautiful all around! And it may be the first time I've seen you play chord/melody style? Maybe not, but I like it! :)

Chuckle, I have just answered this comment under another vid, sorry John ! Yes, I like it, am almost certainly going to make another early Virginia style dulcimer of some description, I'm hooked !

Beautiful, John. That's dulcimer with a capital D!

I can hear that the instrument's sound is really developing in a gorgeous way.
