I would say you played very well Sam.
It is great to have so many MD players to be inspired from.
Thanks Sam for inspiring me.
Thanks Dennis. With practice it might even be recognizable :)
Sam, very nice. Thanks for sharing
Thanks John ... 'preciate the kind words.
Nice job! That was very enjoyable!
Thanks Dave, reckon I got a piece to go to get to where you are though. Enjoy all your videos.
I'm sure you picked up on the slop. I HAVE to practice pressing, holding and letting the note follow through. The noter is a great tool for me, but unlike Cheryl, I get lazy and do not hold that nano second to make my notes distinct. I know it and I'm sure everyone else does. I have started to try to do better on that.
Thanks for the kind words.
Morning FOTMD ... and especially to Wayne, Patty, John Henry, Dana, Jim, Bill, Robin and Geekling. I spend my nights off at the old home place, no internet. It's always a treat to see what everyone's been up to on the boards. FOTMD and the warm encouragement I have received here is largely the reason that I have progressed the little I have with my dulcimers.
I sincerely thank everyone who has been so supportive, kind and helpful.
I don't care what JH says, y'all are pretty neat!
Sam, Ya done good! I like the way that instrument sounds and the way you're playing it may have something to do with that.
Sam, you & Dave R could've accompanied the crowd gathered in Glenville at the opening of the WVStateFolkFestival the day Mark & I were there a few or so years ago! Very nice, my friend!
Hi Sam: I was introduced to the dulcimer at the Cedar Lakes Arts and Crafts fair in Ripley WV. West Virginia Hills in DAA was the tune I remember the most from those days. It sounded beautiful then and it sounds ever better hearing you play it. Peace!!
Hey Sam, not bad at all. It sounded pretty darn good. Keep up the good work.
Sam I know you like to spin a good yarn, but saying you can't play the dulcimer is really stretching it. LOL That was GREAT! You just keep getting better.
John Henry, "skinny dipping" really? Remember there are ladies present
Sam, ignore all that female flattery, would they go skinny dipping with you Take it from me, that was a good listen ! .(I reckon a few of us will be trying to catch up on you with this tune. What's coming next?)
Sam, that was awesome I just printed Dave's tab today....If I can get through the first measure I'll be a happy camper. Thanks for sharing
Thanx all ... your kind encouragement is greatly appreciated. It's great to have 'FRIENDS' of the mountain dulcimer to help those of us who are struggling.
Road trip to pinch Sams's neck?? Anyone??? We'll let him cook us some yummy supper first though. :)
Hey Sam, nice sounding dulcimer there! That noter stuff is really tough for me.
