Wonderfully played, Amanda, on another hymn I've not heard in a very long time.  The music of the spheres is here.  :)  Love the sound of your Knopf instrument, too!

Thanks, @Strumelia! This instrument just arrived Monday night, so it was one of my first times noodling with it. I asked Mr. Knopf about tuning my new Thomas, and he said the traditional tuning for them was CGG, or just "to a good note," as the old-timers said. I do have my Prichard tuned DAA, though!

Sounds great to me, real traditional! We'd all love to see a pic of your new beauty.  :)

-have you tried the dulcimer in key of D yet?

Well, shoot! I didn't realize these posted to a public space! LOL!!
