Leaning on the Everlasting Arms - Mountain Dulcimer

I first heard this song sung by Robert Mitchum as a creepy preacher in the movie "Night of the Hunter". My talk is more inspired by a more wholesome version by the Carter Family.

Thanks for the encouragement. Cindy, listening to the Carter Family version again, there is a a mandolin solo, which is probably what gave me the idea to move up an octave. I've been realizing how many songs that I like involve the mandolin, but playing them on a dulcimer when possible sounds just as good or better!

Nice playing, Mark! I like the use of the quill. Calling Robert Mitchum's preacher "creepy" may be a bit of an understatement! Great movie!
