Geekling, I am recovering pretty well.  I actually recorded this a few months ago.  Oh that my left leg would bend back that far right now!  Helen, that middle part of Shady Grove is a break that my teacher taught me - kind of breaks it up nicely.  Dave, thanks for the nice comment - looking forward to getting back together with you and Don to play in the spring!

Very nice! You seem to be recovering pretty well from your surgery!

Great playing there Gail. I love the full sound of your dulcimer. And thanks for showing me the second part to Shady Grove, I only had the first and had thought ' this is such a great tune, there must be more'. Now I have it! Merry Christmas from me down here.

Thanks for the nice comments, everyone.  These are 2 tunes I like to play in DAc tuning and I just kinda put them together.

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.
