Is it possible to have too much fun?  Nice job, Terry!  You are a one-man band!

Thank you, Dusty.

I have actually practiced with a couple of foot drums.   I found the foot drum to be a real challenge,  for me.  The truth is, I lack rythm, and it's almost impossible to play foot drum, with harp and dulcimer, without the gift of rythm.   Imho.  Totally different animal.

Thank you.😊 Cindy.  One of the greatest gifts we have to offer others is a smile.  It's contagious. 

I like your idea of homemade shakers.  I may get my granddaughters to make Perhaps a dozen or so, just for a change.

Learning to play harp with uke or dulcimer, proved to be a challenge.   But once you get it, then it's like riding a bicycle or roller skating.

Terry!  This was so much fun!  And I can just see those folks joining you with their shakers!  I am pretty impressed by your playing 2 instruments at the same time!  (My daddy used to say I couldn't walk and chew gum at the same time Laugh)

About the shakers - I have shared the dulcimer at some local elementary schools at different times.  To keep all kids involved, I made shaker eggs (plastic eggs with beans or split peas inside) and gave them to the kids that were not currently playing the dulcimer.  This also is a lot of fun - and Boil Them Cabbage Down was always the song of choice!

Thank you for the smiles Terry!

Thank you, Lisa.   They are always telling me,  "We love you."   And I love them too.  It's not so much about the music, as it is about the connection.   My mother died a year ago last October, at 99.  Now it seems I have a bunch of mothers.   I'm just an old child of 72.

They love the shakers.  With the shakers , they become a member of the bamd.   They love doing "Sweet Molly Malone", with the only music the shakers. And only on the chorus.   It's a very active somg, woth swaying and arm waving.

Another favorite is "If you're happy and you know it."  Both songs are great exercise.

I know that you didn't ask for all that, but just wanted to take the opportunity to share.

OMG Terry, this is SO GREAT!  Wonderful tips about handing out only the chorus at first, so new singers don't get overwhelmed.  And the shakers being good exercise, and also good for folks who are too intimidated to sing but who want to participate in some way anyway.

The seniors you play for a incredibly lucky to have you make music for them- your playing and singing are infectious and just plain happy!  I can just imagine them looking forward all week to you coming in to play for them.  jive

Hey Terry, good to see you post again. Boil them cabbage down is a song that almost everyone, not just seniors can learn to sing, it's one that folks can really get into. I sure appreciate the addition of the harmonica and your singing. Thank you.

Thank you friend, for your kind comments.

Hey Terry, I enjoyed your video and the suggestions.  I'm going to see if I can get some rattles/shakers.  I play at an Alzheimer center once a month and I think the folks would like something like that.  I don't sing while I play but the people often do when they know the song.  So I'm going to print up some lyrics for them.  Thanks for the tips and for the video.  Dulcinina

Thank you, Dulcinina.

Glad to read that you also play at a senior center.  Keep at it.

I didn't mean that ALL seniors know the words to this song.  Only the seniors that I've had the privilege of introducing this song to, in the past three years.  Their favorite song.
