Nice job!

Thanks Garey.  Means so much to read your kind comment.   The 28th of this month will be 9 months into this journey.   I accept it as a rich rewarding experience, I view it as a blessing, and treasure the possibilities of it all.  Anticipation can be exhilarating, and for lack of a better word, just plan darn fun.

You deserve a medal for bravery (I'd be scared to death to record myself). You've grown so much as a dulcimer player, in the short time I've known you. The journey is what is important! Day by day . . . Step by step. . .

Thank y'all very much for your kind comments.  My dear wife tells me I am better than that, but hey, she's prejudiced and the proof is in the pudding.  A very long ways to go, but it will be interesting to compare this to 12 months from now.  Like someone said, this is a starting point.  Can't know the temperature without some sort of gauge.   At 66 years of age, I have a real understanding of not taking myself too seriously.  Learning to play the mountain dulcimer is a new discovery in my life, a new adventure, and I am enjoying every minute of this blessed moment.  No different than learning to master fly fishing, except you don't get caught in rain & thunderstorms, and rush to an emergency room with a hook in your nose or lip.  Yes, it's true on both accounts.

Nice job, Terry, on this great old hymn!    

I'm not very good with using technology so can relate to the challenges presented by fancy machines.

That's all right, Terry; I'm sure we've all had technical difficulties.  What you got up sounds good, so keep it up and I'm sure you'll get it all on the next one.

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.
