I tabbed out a chord/melody version of this tune based on John's playing here. I'm going to share it in one of the workshops I'm teaching this weekend at the Berkeley Dulcimer Gathering.  

I've attached a pdf of the tab in case anyone else is interested.  It is a simple ballad melody, but very moving, and can be played very slowly with great success.

It is wonderful to remember John through his lovely music.

This song is so beautifully played. Thanks Robin for posting it, I listen to his audios often.

John, this is lovely.  (I heard no indication single melody string being a challenge!) You've got me wanting to learn this lovely tune.

I can't tell you're having any trouble.  The melody's ringing sweet and clear.  So clear, in fact, that I grabbed an instrument and began playing a harmony part.

Very very nice john. To my surprise, i really like the single melody string sound.... do i dare?

Really beautifully played John, it is so nice to hear you again.

Isn't it funny that something so simple as a single melody string is a challenge. I have noticed that with my Thomas replica that Kevin M. made me.

Very nice, John - and the dulcimer has a very nice sound.  Did Robin Clark build it?

Robin Clark design Heritage model - DAA

Brand new and still a bit raw, but the fretboard is starting to speed up and the tone gets better by the day.

Moving to a single melody string has been more of a challenge than I expected.
