Hey, friends, thank you for the nce comments!  I wanted my Ode to sound as though it had a little grit to it. :)

The home base tuning on my Timbre Hill dulcimer is Bagpipe (Ddd).  For Ode, I placed a false nut at fret 4 under two drone strings and used a thumb strum (hitting the strings with the back of my thumb nail).

Hello Robin, that's indeed a fine rendition. I am also very glad that you are participating in James' monthly challenges I'm always hopeful that more folks will take up the challenge.

Hi Robin,

This is the 1st time I've heard the Ode played noter drone style and I enjoyed it. Thanks.
