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.113.gif

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.

Thanks Rob;

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.Grin.gif

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.
