Randy, you are expanding the repertoire for noter playing-- dulcimer tunes that can transfer to fiddle instead of their being transferred the other way around.  It's an open secret I'm a fan!

Sincere thanks for watching my friends.

Dusty they don't tell a story! : )

Cynthia...You and Dusty are more poetic than I am. I should have you name my tunes! They usually don't hold any meaning for me other than numerical. 

Here's where I'm coming from on a couple things.

I can make up fiddle tunes. I don't really try to and w/o being dramatic about it they just kind of come to me. Probly b/c I've been playing them for so many years I know the genre inside and out, although I'm no O'Carolan.

Until about 5 years ago I never kept track of them, or remembered them, except for two. Tune 01 and an as yet unnamed tune. So I figured for the first 35 years I played the tunes I might have made up 20 tunes so I started naming them with Tune 21. Then I began using odd numbers for them, just a quirk. I've named (with actual names) about a half dozen tunes so there is gaps in the numbers but there's about 40 tunes I've kept track of.

Some I am proud of, some not. Some I got a good recording on, some not. Some of 'em I played pretty good, some, or most, with mistakes. I'm just an amateur hack, it's a hobby, a pastime, for me. Don't worry! Nothing to sell here! : )

I do like to think I'm expanding the repertoire for noter playing, or showing what's possible, within my narrow area of expertise....fiddle tunes.

Thanks again for listening and commenting.

Another good one, Randy! Kind of like those old outlaw songs from the mountains.

If I haven't heard tunes 1-88, will I understand this one? Maybe you can give me a plot summary to catch me up.laughlaugh

Seriously, this is an infectious and haunting tune.  I imagine traveling through a blizzard at night.
