Thanks Lexie and Helen. It was meant to be "cave" like and performed freely with lots of echos. The Blanchard Springs Caverns are huge and an extremely beautiful site to behold. I am so glad you both enjoyed it.

So lovely Karen. I remember going through ice caves and the song was magical as the caves were.

Thanks Cynthia, Monica, and Gary. I appreciate you all listening. I do have quiet a few more Cynthia, but I haven't posted them yet. I get busy with other stuff and forget to post videos of fingerpicking. John and I have a lot of videos on YouTube, but I haven't posted one of my playing in awhile. If you want to check out some of those just search tubakeane on YouTube and you can see our duet stuff. Thanks so much for listening.

Thanks so much Dewey and Chuck for listening. I am currently working on getting it tabbed out on Tabledit. I have a couple of folks playing through it now, so I can make corrections. It means a lot to me to hear such kind words. Thanks a bunch.

Karen, I just stumbled across your beautiful Caverns of Blanchard Springs recording and had to pause long enough to hand you some roses. The song is beautiful, original (out of the mainstream), and touches my spirit. It is this kind of music that I love the best, and feel that the dulcimer gives the most to the listener when performing it. But not everyone has that kind of music inside them, or knows how to get it out, even if they do. You are one of the lucky ones. And the rest of us are lucky to be able to hear you play. Thank you for taking the time to share your gift with us.

A beautiful piece of music, although I was never in the Blanchard Springs Caverns your music is truly evocative of a majestic and mysterious underground cavern.Smile.gif

Hey Paula my Louisiana friend. I took a class from her in Irving, Texas last year and one from Linda Brockinton this summer. I learned a lot and I'm still learning. Holler if I can do anything!

Karen - this song is beautiful! I am a beginner (from south Louisiana) and I am enjoying my dulcimer - I just received Sue Carpenters fingerpicking video to add dimension to my playing - anxious to get started!

Thanks Ian, that dulcimer is an all walnut McSpadden with a 26 VSL. I purchased it this summer and I just love it. The 26 VSL is great for smaller hands.

Thanks so much Patty, I had the same experience going through the Caverns at Blanchard Springs. I couldn't help imagining playing my dulcimer down there. The caverns were just amazing. It inspired me to write this song.
