I am attempting to play less with thumb on this tune and the fingers still get a bit jumbled. The pinky is weak that is for sure. This is a slowed up version of the tune. More practice is needed but just wanted to share my attemps with ya'll.

Sorry I spelled "play". I got my fingers "jumbled".

Is there anything you can't plary beautifully???  You are truly blessed to be able to play so well.  I finger pick but not so smoothly as you do.

I love this tune played as a lament.  And that is a great, great version Laura!


I was sitting on the beach this morning in Costa Rica at sunrise playing the tune.  I's not cold or frosty here but it is still a lovely tune to play!

Visit Strumelia's Beginner Noter-Drone dulcimer Blog

I have a main blog for Traditional style mountain dulcimer playing here: Mountain Dulcimer Noter-drone Blog This is an old style of playing where you only fret your notes on the melody string, while letting the drones strings ring open. In my blog, I express my personal views about playing, I offer free TAB and free beginner videos, and I try to help beginners understand in a very basic simple way the 'mysteries' of playing the mountain dulcimer in traditional modal noter/drone style.
