All I managed to do was almost ruin one of my clarke's trying that tweak heh. :-'
I sometimes dislike ren fair season(which starts up this month). I fall so behind on TPE stuff while preparing for shows.

Blackhawk, I'm a big fan of that whistle, and it's obviously in good hands.

Nicely done.

Very nice, Blackhawk! And excellent choice of whistle for the song. The only whistle I have that didn't make me shudder on all those high Ds is my Tommy-tweaked Walton C.

I broke a rule of mine and listened to y'all play before I gave it a go. Turns out instead of scaring me off from trying, it actually inspired me to see what I could do. Before I listened to these versions, I couldn't hear anything pretty in the notes on the page, much less make them sound like a song. Anyway, here's my version, complete with the ideas I stole from you guys. :oops:

NICE, Shan! You put a great deal of feeling into that song. Nice on the ornamentation.

It's called "learning from each other," young lady. :mrgreen: I also have found it very encouraging to listen to other's playing, partly because it taught me that there are so many different, and valid, interpretations.

Btw, good job Shan and Jim!

And this was the very reason I put forth the TPE idea in the first place :)

It was a great idea, Shadoes. Look at how much pleasure and learning has taken place because of you idea. Let me just say THANK YOU!

Nice job everyone - three great versions, very different.

For the record - I never met a cool lick I didn't want to steal/borrow/adapt :mrgreen: . To quote The Book - ' ... there is nothing new under the sun. ' That's why good players all listen A LOT, and why ear training is so important. Listening is a learned skill.

Let me echo the thank you to shadoes -- I know I enjoy playing more, and in fact, do play more, not to mention better, because of TPE.

Gotta add my thanks to shadoes for his brain child of TPE! =D> My playing has improved, found dulcimers, and had a blast listening to all the great music.

.... and I hate to get this back on topic, but here's a link to my version of "The Love of God". Tried the upload from my computer and was told the file needed to be under 2MB. Missed it by .5 ... :roll: (Psst ... how does one get a file under 2MB?) Hopefully the link will work -- "The Love of God". Got to confess that I was very liberal with the score's timing ... intentionally.

This was played on a new toy ... a dulcimer noodleboard, which is a dulcimer fretboard attached to a 1/4" baltic plywood board ... no sound box. It has an amazing sound for what it is. (At least, I think it does. ;)) This was made by David Lynch of Sweet Woods Dulcimers. I wanted a lightweight, less breakable, quieter dulcimer-like instrument for playing in the car, waiting at the hospital (when necessary), letting kids see how to play a dulcimer without holding my breath. This fits the bill for all of that!

Nice job, Judy! I like the sound of your instrument, esp. being one that you can let kids touch without cringing.

Hi everybody. This tune has really grown on me so I thought I'd have a go here. I've also never heard it outside this context. Those posted so far are great in that they show a wide range of interpretation. I would welcome any constructive criticism, but be please be gentle as this is my first attempt.

Oh, $5 Ren-Fair bamboo in A .
