My son Bill reminded me of this tune the other day. He's getting to be a pretty fair banjo player! Tuned EAA key of A. Learned from Jenni Wallace.

Great playing as always, Randy.  The octave work here makes for a nice variation.

Liked it well enough to try to play it Randy!!!    Some great variation tucked away in there , thanks for playing it, as it were, 'full length', it allows one to really get the 'feel'

That's great Randy

 

Another super little tune from you -  I love those quirky mixolidian tunes. 

 

Did you throw in a new phrase the last round through the Part As?

 

You work is paying off Randy

Heartfelt thanks my friends...makes me feel the time spent this winter learning this style of play was worthwhile. I am getting more comfortable with it ...the work/fun ratio is tilting towards the fun side nowadays... : )...I'll keep working on it...work is fun!

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.
