Hi Lexie! I am not sure I ever saw this! I can close my eyes and sail away in the beauty of the soft dulcimer music! I hope you are doing well, and hope to see more videos!
Hi Lexie. Thanks for sharing that video. Always fun to see someone play with that old style noter. It really helps to highlight the history and tradition of the instrument. Great job....I just love it!
Ken you are a rascal.
Thank you Lisa for your positive feedback and encouragement, I appreciate it.
Lil' Girly and I plan to do a strum along together with "ButterNut" & "Silvery Thommy" soon. Then I have a song ready to play with Thommy.
You have a nice easy slide with that noter- very lyrical. Butternut...yummy! The hammerons and slide timing is great- nice and strong. Can't wait to hear a pretty little tune on your new Thomas!
Thank you Monica, I am doing better playing now, I was having lots of hand pain when I posted this.
I will try to post soon showing improvement.
Thanks for you nice comments. I love my dulcimer Bob Schuler built, it is light great action and I believe a great dulcimer for a beginner to learn on. My plan is to keep it as my treasured instrument.
well played, It has a lovely sound.
Yes, Lexie, necessity is the invention of mother... or something like that. I know down the road I will not be able to hold a pick tight between my thumb and index finger. Have to see what I come up with.. my nose isn't long enough...
Thanks for your support and nice comment, my friend Ken.
I have a chop stick I stick up my splint....work around cuz I am stubborn and want to play for you! This way I don't really have to hold my noter...HahhhA
Lexie, congrats on posting your first video , sounds real good. Keep 'em coming. I hope your hand problems don't interfere too much, there are always work-arounds. I know from my own hand/wrist problems.
Thanks so much Geekling and Oliver for your support and encouragement.
Although I hate my splints, I am working on playing Sugar Hill again with a chop stick noter pushed up my splint, where I don't really need to hold it, aww it is comfortable and more fun.
I am working also on another fun song which when I get it down I will post. Also I want to do this one again.
I am having fun with my "Lil ButterNut" and am strumming away!!
Keep on Smiling and Strumming! Thanks!
Lexie, very nice first video,I enjoyed it. Also your dulcimer sounds good.
Lexie, congrats on getting a video posted! Good job.
Congratulations on your first video, Lexie. Hopefully there will be many more to come. You doindeed have those slides and hammer-ons working nicely. Good job!
Sorry about the "hurty" hands.
Hooray Lexie!!! You got your video up on the main. I think you did great with Sugar Hill. I can't wait to see more of your videos. As I said, you're a braver soul than me. Took me a long while before I got the nerve to post a video. Keep them coming
Thanks for sharing that, Lexie! Nice playing!
Good job, Lexie! I like those hammer ons and slides.
Thanks Friends, you are very sweet and encouraging and I appreciate your watching and comments
I am sorry I am not my best at playing for you, I think it was just learning how to load a video that was the deal for me.
I love playing this song (Sugar Hill) with the slides and hammer-on's and the last couple days I have been working on playing it with my splint on my Left hand with a chop stick noter, much more comfortable and I play better.
So I will try again doing another video soon and play with more ease.
