Reuben's Train

Artist: Rob N Lackey
Genre: Folk & Singer-Songwriter
Duration: 00:05:37

Reuben's Train, based on the Frank Profitt version lyrically. Tried to capture the mood of those old modal folk tunes that echo through the subconscious. From my cd, "Old Songs" available at

Cmcelraft... Yes, this is only on one dulcimer, a Jerry Rockwell large hourglass set up for 4 independent strings tuned D A A d.  That's one of my favorite tunings for 4 strings.

Patty, you are correct.  Give the girl a cigar!  It's my Jerry Rockwell large hourglass, cherry and western red cedar.  Most fantastic dulcimer in the world.  If I remember correctly, he has  a standard hourglass for sale.  For that one I used 4 independent strings tuned DAAd.

Outstanding!!! I suppose you are playing the Rockwell? That dulcimer has volume. Thanks for sharing this.
