John; thank you so much for listening to “In the Garden” and for your kind comment!  Our pictures tell a life story and just add so much to our music.  I certainly felt that with your “Wayfarin’ Stranger”!

Thank you Cindy for your warm response. I love the artistry you showed in your video: "In The Garden, A tribute to my Sister-in law and friend". Thanks for sharing.

Unique interpretation of that that I just love. If you end up with 10,000 views soon, 9,000 are going to be mine. You are an inspired and unique voice John and I'm glad I found you.

A few notes to add to my rendition of Wayfarin' Stranger:

My dulcimer was tuned to D A a, Capo 1which now becomes a Dorian Mode. This haunting mode suited my singing range.  I also like the dissonance in the music which yearns for completion, just as the Wayfarin' Stranger yearned for completion in his life too.

I especially like the tribute to your mother and father, John.  I miss mine every day.
