This one has been around pretty much forever. The tune is a folk melody from India. Attached are the score and audio file. An accompaniment track, created by Ren Tin 10, will be posted later. :)

At long last, a new tune! 8)

Of course, I won't use my own accompaniment track. I'll probably re-do it from scratch. ;)

Wow, that's cool. Is that a true banjo or is it a dulcijo?

Me and the Alvarez and a Clarke Original in C ... I don't even really know if these are the right words! Just what I remembered - singing was a last minute decision.

Wow .... the two recordings are so completely different ... distinctive to each artist.

Love the banjolin part you added, Aaron.

Voice and whistle -- great combo, Jim!

Thank you... I didn't really get it together as well as I might have hoped.

BTW, the banjolin is a slightly different instrument than what I'm using. The banjolin proper is a four stringed instrument tuned to play the violin part in a banjo orchestra.
Image

Whereas the mandolin-banjo is an eight stringed instrument like a mandolin. Some banjolins are fretted and some are not, but all mandolin-banjos are fretted.
Image

The ukulele banjo is another instrument that looks like a banjolin, but it is considerably smaller, and it is tuned very differently.
Image

They are all great instruments. I'm glad Connie mentioned the Dulcijo. I was unfamiliar with it, so I looked it up, and watched a YouTube video of it.

Do you have an album? I want one.

Thanks again - jrc

Wow .. Jim ... didn't know that you had a voice like that. You have a gift .. hope you are using it. Southern Gospel ... is really popular around here ... you sing much of it over there??? Oh .. and the whistling and guitar ain't bad either! =D> =D> :thumbsup:

Thanks for the kind words fellas.

Jim - Blues/Gospel is where I feel most at home. I'm often put in a position where I have to do some other things sometimes, but it's certainly where my heart is. I've got an original song in the vein I'm gonna post before long - it's based on a verse in I Peter.

Larry - The quickest I've ever seen a room clear was at a Kristofferson concert. We opened, and it was at the peak of his movie days - everybody came to see the 'star'; I guess they had never heard a Kris record before. About 1500 people left within about 30 minutes :D . I like Kris though, thanks very much for the comment, please don't misunderstand. He's got a very unique voice, and has written some amazing songs.

I've been a fan of Kris's since his first album way back in my freshman year of college.
I agree with Jim Wright, Southern Gospel was meant for a voice like yours. I can just picture you at a "Gaither Homecoming" show!

Here's a mountain dulcimer version from me.

While I was at it, I also contributed a version of Eleanor Plunkett (see Music forum).
