Jan, Ariane thank you for your comments. I like to keep the bass running through whatever tune I'm playing as much as possible. I think it adds a nice little bit to the melody.

So lovely Val.  I love a lot of the bass throughout.  Some interesting chords in it, I haven't heard done on this piece before. So refined :-)

Wonderful playing and sound, Val - this tune reminds me of the first steps on my tin whistle - it was one of the first tunes I have learned to play on it many years ago.

Val, your play of this lovely O'Carolan piece is outstanding!  The dulcimer you built has a wonderful warm tone.  All so good!
