Baby-O played on PVMB

musician/member name: Music
Duration: 00:01:18
Jean Ritchie, Don Pedi, and Randy Adams all influenced how I play this tune-- please don't blame any of them for my play, though!
The coughing and toenail noises are coming from our old pup.

PS - Dave Rogers, I'm using a false nut and an extra fret in this video. I don't have the touch with a noter the way some of my friends do. F'real.

Gail, thank you!  

I know you've got a treasure in that Don Neuhauser-built Galax!  I tried noting two strings with a dulcimer strung with equidistant strings and it wasn't easy.  I probably gave up on the set-up too quickly due to my own impatience.  

Have fun working with Baby-O!

Robin, I have been listening to this again and you do such a nice job on it.  I am trying to learn this one on my Galax dulcimer - Don Neuhauser built it for me and I just received it in September.  I've never really been a noter player and trying to learn noting 2 equidistant strings is really a challenge!

Many thanks, Val!  Someday, I might actually get around to learning a few of the Irish tunes you play so beautifully.

Thank you, Jennifer!  This tune can be played, given so many different sounds and this is just one of 'em.  It's fun to experiment.

Nice playing, Robin.  More people should turn boxes into dulcimers.
