Serendipity, Steve!Grin.gif I'm using DAd and a G harp, or what's known as "cross" harp, which puts the bendable notes where you want 'em and matches the mixolydian scale of the dulcimer.

I was just listening to a version of 'Darlin Cory ' on my way to work this morning and thinking 'what a good song' and now have come across your posting which I'd obviously missed before.

I loved your take on this and the sound you are getting from a cardboard dulcimer (really?)and for one who only manages 'headless' vids I am always impressed with yours

Keep em coming

Oh yes What tuning are you using?

Thank you ALL so very much! I'm glad I was able to re-connect Dusty to his first song--love the thought of a 4-year-old singing those particular words.Grin.gif

Wow, you've got a real genuine bluesy sound here. You use that noter and dulcimer like a slide guitar. Really cool. I especially like this because it was the first song I ever played on any instrument. It was a ukulele and I must have been about 4 or 5 years old. I sang it as "Darlin' Corey" "with 45 strapped around her bosom and a banjo on her knee."

Very impressive, Jud!! The concept, the video, the presentation are all great! I agree with Robin, we need more of this "outside the box" creativity.

Hi Jud,

This is exactly what the dulcimer community needs Smile.gif Folks like you who are prepared to push the boundaries and create something different. A great interpretation of an old song, mixing the old with the new. Loved the video too Grin.gif

Thanks to discussions on this site, I pushed my noter technique out to 3 strings--going for kind of an old banjo effect, I guess.
