Wow, I love this, Luigi-- your play of the tune and the mountain dulcimer you made sound great!

Great job and great tune.  I’ll have to try this tune.

Ah, I didn't see that capo in the video. Cool!

It is in Aeolian mode in my opinion. I use a capo at the first fret.

It's rare to find a really rousing mixolydian mode tune- this is a great version of a sea shanty Luigi!
(note to players- can be played in DAd without the 6.5 fret)   :D

Good stuff Luigi! I like that percussion accompniment.

Very popular during the Covid 19 pandemic, especially in Europe. There are many versions with new text (The Neddleman), also in German.

I liked this melody and made a version of it for Dulcimer. With foot percussion: cajon and bass drum pedal.
