Nicely done and a beautiful instrument as well! Thank you!
Thank you very much, Steve.
Thanks for sharing this Terry
your Sow is a thing of beauty and sounds wonderful
Best wishes to you and yours for 2019 and good luck getting along with your ‘stick’
I suspect your Sow is not much longer than my epinettes, and if so then Irene's suggestion to give table playing a try is something you might get a kick out of experimenting with. I play my epinettes on a table, with tiny silicone dots on the underside so it doesn[t slide around. Took a little getting used to but it actually makes sense, like playing a little piano. I now find it more comfortable than lap playing. It may or may not appeal to you, but cant hurt to try. Speaking as an 'old dog', I find I can still enjoy learning new tricks! ;D
You know, this sounds interesting to me. I won't know until I try. This old dog is always looking to learn a new trick.
Thank you, Lisa
I think a lot of us have been following how this dulcimer is built, played and now mailed and played by you. nice in the key of C too. I agree. Make that stick shorter, it will work better for you. Try also sitting it on a little table and it might stay level. I put small little rubber bumpers on the bottom of my dulcimers so the back can vibrate more...but small so as not to interfere with playing them on the lap too. HAVE FUN and we all will take your advice and stay healthy. aloha, irene
Glad you like the key of C. I favor C on most everything.
I'll have to give your ideas try.
Thank you kindly.
I love the sound of it. Good job!
Thank you, hoodoo.
Ariane, and Gordon. Thank yout for being so kind.
That's a lovely sounding and lovely looking dulcimer Terry. I appreciate your playing and your chatting. Well done!
I congratulate you on your new dulcimer, Terry - it sounds very beautiful! I can imagine how happy you are.
That hog fiddle sounds great Terry! Very much fuller and richer than one might expect from the soundbox dimensions of this slightly smaller than usual dulcimer. Love that it's in the key of C, too.
Sure is purty, that wood and the graceful lines of it. Don't see much chestnut around anymore.
You can do all the talkin you want Terry, listening to your Georgia accent is very soothing.
Thank you, as always, for your kindness. Yep, C is the best tuning for this little sow. Sweeter.
Georgia accent? Well, yeah, I've sure got one. Glad you like it.
Sounds might good. Thanks for sharing Terry.
Thank you, Richard. I appreciate your prayers.
Nicely done & a blessed '19, Terry! Keep enjoying that sweet Hogfiddle!
I sure will. Thank you, Robin. Gotta make the stick my friend.
Played very well, Terry, on a beautiful dulcimer! I recently put in an order for one of Bobby's Boar dulcimers...it'll be tough waiting for it, but from the sound and appearance of yours, the wait'll be worth it!
The Boar is a larger instrument than my Sow. Steven, you should be very happy with the larger instrument.
To all of you, thank you very much. The fact that I talk a lot probably makes it difficult to watch the whole sheboygan. But I just felt it was important to speak for Bobby, as he is much to humble a man.
