My Carnal life I will lay down

musician/member name: Music
Duration: 00:00:57
Song from the book "Come life , Shaker life" arranged by Bill Collins Tuning C#,G#,C#, capo 1

Tonight I took out the Blue lion that has been sitting in its case for too long and revisited a book of Shaker tunes by Bill Collins. Not sure if I am playing the song right as I haven't heard anyone playing it on dulcimer. It is a sweet but melancholy song. "My carnal life I will lay down"

Monica, I love this lilting moody rendition- your playing is wonderful and sensitive.

The creative atmospheric lighting and setting of your video combined with the theme/title of the tune made me envision a nun in little monastery room vowing to leave behind earthly pleasures for a life of devotion.

Very beautiful!
