A simple little tune I've just learnt from the dulcimer-online.de website played on my Scheitholz/Dulcimer. Tuned EBE with a capo on the first fret.

If I had known that before, Peter, that you are building kanteles...

What a coincidence, Peter, some days ago I bought a Finnisch 11string Lovikka kantele - I will try this tune on it too. smile

Well that is a coincidence indeed!  I've made over twenty 5, 7 and 10 string kanteles before (you can get all the triad chords on the 7) but my latest, finished last week, is my first 11 string!  I've attached a photo below.  Have fun!  Peter

Thank you Martin.  I've really admired your playing, particularly the street market performances, and your lessons have been a great help to me.  The Praetorious gavottes I've learned from your videos but I'm still struggling with the Breton March on the Scheitholt!  I'll just have to persevere....

Very nice playing, Peter! We played this waltz (which seems to have Finnish/Swedish origins) with our band too and I always liked the swaying (wiegend) and slightly melancholy melody. sun

Thanks Ariane.  Very interesting about the Finnish/Swedish origins.  I also make Finnish Kanteles (although I can't play them very well) so it be fun to try Emma's Waltz on one of these.

Peter Searle:Have you looked at his other website, dulcimus.de?  He has some great videos of him playing at various street fairs which are really inspiring.

Yes, Martin has posted some of his outdoor performances here as well.  It's a lot of fun.  He definitely has a real feel for the instrument and plays with lots of joy.

If I am not mistaken, that website (dulcimer-online.de) belongs to FOTMD member @martin-oesterle.  He posted the Emma's Waltz lesson here as well.

That's the man, Dusty!  I didn't realise that he was a FOTMD member.  Have you looked at his other website, dulcimus.de?  He has some great videos of him playing at various street fairs which are really inspiring.

Thank you all for your kind remarks.  There are a number of video lessons on www.dulcimer-online.de which I have found very useful and I can definitely recommend them; that was how I learnt "Emma's Waltz".  The lessons are in German but the videos show the finger placements so clearly that the language is no real impediment for no-German speakers.

I love the song and the sound of your instrument. I am a fan of the early music sound and hope to get more of that in my playing. Barb

Beautiful, Peter. Do you have a photo of the instrument?

Thank you, Elvensong!  I've some pictures in my "Photos" section on FOTMD.  Not sure how to link to this but they're in the gallery "scheitholt-or-long-thin-dulcimer-type-thingy".
