Thanks Cynthia..........and yes I did read the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy......I loved it.........who was it.........Arthur Dent or Ford Prefect......remember the opening in the bar........the bulldozer and all that.......hyper-space-way.....the earth is going to be destroyed in order to build and no one complained about it even though the plans had been published for a millennia on another planet.....by the way, Trillian, in the radio version (Susan Sheridan) passed on last year.

You have a style like no other and I really love it. It's like floating out among the stars. Did you read The Ultimmate Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy? I really enjoyed that book.

Salt, thanks for posting that. I had a hard week and the haunting beauty of your tune hit the spot!

It is a nice way to unwind with your dulcimer. Very nice and calming.

By the way.......for fans of this tune there is some interesting history and versions of this tune on the great Bluegrass

site

which should be on everyone's book mark list........there are over 20 versions of this tune and it was often called Wayfaring Pilgrim too.

Just a musing after a difficult day.  I strung up the Folk Roots Baritone with some lighter gauge string and tuned it up to DAA.   It seems to sound pretty good tuned this way.  Capo on 1.
