At the Original Dulcimer Players Funfest we are having an early arrival Bowed Psaltery Gathering! A lot of Dulcimer players also own Bowed Psalteries and should remember to bring them this year. Evart Michigan Wednesday July 17 see more on FOTMD sister site "Psaltery Strings".

Indeed that's my old Sunhearth used there. #692 (of 1000), dated 5/15/83 and signed 'W. Martin' (Walt). The same Walt that Loraine Lee composed "Walt's Waltz" for. 

As for tempo, just saying (warning) that it does tend to go somewhat faster at most dances or sessions. Rhythmic chord playing can work better at that point than trying for every single melody note!  

We should indeed include a quick cutaway shot to Gregg's left hand sometime as it's amazing, painting watercolor portraits of famous psaltery players off to the side. (lol)

Nice playing!  I hate to think of how fast you'd play this if it weren't "learning-the-tune tempo."

I do wonder what Gregg is doing with his left hand. Laugh

Wonderful!  That looks like a beautiful vintage Sunhearth dulcimer?

Great duet with Greg on the psaltery.

You guys sound great!   :D

The two of you give the answer to the question of why this tune was Tobin's Favorite!

Here's a version of Tobin's Favorite I did with Gregg Schneeman a couple weeks ago. It's a good learning-the-tune tempo, advanced slow-jam. 

There's a frequent D to G change (002 - 013) that I sometimes substitute with Bm (012) and Em (113).
