That was beautiful. Thank you...
Hi Phil, thanks for the response:) The Hambas is a beautiful instrument and sounds great in the videos you directed me to. I'm curious as to what other builders' dulcimers you own. They must be pretty special to have been the "keepers" when you were thinning out! Unless it was just the fact that it was a baritone not being played much that caused you to give the Hambas up.Yes, my dulcimer is a David Lynch. I really do love it, great sound and volume (I have a built in pickup) and it is the only dulcimer I have. I first bought a Folkcraft off Craigslist, but sold that one when I had the Lynch built. I'm in the mode/mood where I just want another, but want it to be something different than what I already have. Like maybe a chromatic.... do you play a fully chromatic?
Thank you Phil, best wishes to you and family for 2015, Val.
Hi Phil. Trying to show John how to type messages. He's somewhat technologically challenged.
Delighted to be your friend, Phil. Thanks!
I'm a newbie but with a music background so I do appreciate good playing, even if I can't emulate it yet! Thx again for sharing your videos.
My pleasure Phil, a delight to listen to !
I like beer......a lot. :) :)
That's a sweet BoBH Phil. My fav tune that I can't play!.. : )...love the way you get them chords in there behind it all.
Beeeeeeeppppp.....this is only a test. Message received. Thanks!!!
Phil my friend...YOU ROCK! :) You're playing is fantastic....love your style and your sound. Which dulcimer did you record june apple/going to boston on?? Doesn't sound like your MMD, so maybe the Yocky??
Thanks Phil - you are quite a player youself! I lovethe tunes youposts - You have a very differnt playing style to mine and that's one of the great things about the dulcimer, it is so adaptable!
I'm glad i reminded you of it, now I can listen to yours and see where i've gone wrong and fix mine. I am just now beginning to be able to pick out tunes by ear and am really enjoying it. So thanks again.
sorry just realized it shows up to the left of the feed so everyone can see it.
Phil your version of Rubens train was beautiful! That is how I wanted mine to turn out, think I need to practice a little more. LOL Just wanted to let you know how much I liked it. You might want to post it under videos so it doesn't get lost in the feed thread. It's to great not for everyone to enjoy it. Thanks for posting
Nuttin! I think I'm having problems with my mail....I'll try and send a message to strumelia to see what's happening
Been enjoying your latest audio clips, excellent playing.
That Val Hughs better look to his laurels
I really enjoyed the two tunes you posted today - that's a great due you have going there!
HI Phil! Sorry I missed you...could have come by to hear you play!I bet the Celtic tunes with drum sounded great...would love to hear that!
I don't know Anne, but my sister-i-l has taken lessons from her and can't say enough good things about her. Thanks for your kind words on my progress...I'm getting there slow but steady. I'll have a lesson with Don Pedi sometime this month...I think it will set me in the right direction. Would love to get together to play sometime!! I can also accompany you on guitar or mandolin until I'm up to speed enough on dulci. I played one my smaller bodies martins with the WNC dulcimer group last month and it sounded great....mostly filled in the base-lines and strummed cords.
Anytime you get a hankering to play just let me know....really you're just up the hill from me. :) :)
