Time to pull out the bass, guitar, mando, and hammered dulcimer and do a Klezmerized version. :hdulcimer: \:D/ =D>

Cool! I just did a (short) search for CDs with this song but came up blank. Can anyone point me to one?

On my computer it sounds like the Bela Lugosi version :laughing: .

Not just on YOUR computer! :shock:

However, it does fit the lyrics of the first 2.5 verses quite well.

Now I know how I'm gonna do it. :idea:

Bela's playing a different version too ... didn't notice that til just now. The melody is different, as are the changes.

The two versions (RUF hymnal & Cyber Hymnal) are a little different, but close enough for gov'mint work .... ;)

*****************

Jim, love your version of this! Got to say the one without the click track does have one major advantage over the other. It has 30 seconds more listening pleasure! 8)

Really thought twice about posting this right after jrc's version .... 8-[

Well ... not really. :joker: TPE is a great place for all levels and interpretations. 8)

Here's a 'plain jane' entry into the "Stricken, Smitten and Afflicted" thread .... played on a Kurt Simerman dulcimer (1995) that I got in a trade with Laura last month. Totally different sound (to my ear) than my other dulcimers.

Jim, I envy your being able to add your own accompanying guitar. Cool version.

Judy, I like the "plain Jane" clip you left. Moving.

Jim: Going for the rock beat instead of the Bela Lugosi? Good choice! 8)

Judy: This tune is almost custom-made for the MD. I love it! :mdulcimer:

After leaving the first take and coming back to listen, I almost just pulled it and quit myself - what a train wreck. I should know better than that... lesson learned.

:mrgreen: Yup - the Bela version creeped me out!

:shock: Well, I almost chocked on the homemade fudge I was munching while reading this and came upon "chocolate to you" ... :lol:

:-k Could it be that y'all know me too well?

****************

Thanks, guys. :)

This song continues to grow on me ... even if I still can't figure out how it ended up in my stack of music. Really hope to hear some more versions of this soon.

Ren, that's wonderful .... so different and so cool. =D>

Mighty fine HD playing for the length of time you've had one. I did have to break out the good earphones to fully enjoy the first part. My regular (ie lightweight & cheap) earphones just wasn't picking up the bass tones enough to appreciate that it was the melody. (Blame using Window media player for the problem ... I do.)

I've listened to Ren's version several times in the last couple of hours. Have to say it that it keeps running through my mind that it sounds like theme music for a western. Very cool! 8)

(Actually thinking a kung fu type western, but am blaming that thought on a book I'm currently reading that has Tibetan monks, ancient silks and a modern mystery ... :roll: )

I tweaked the mix a little last night. Other listeners were telling me there was not enough bass in the first verse, and too much in the other verses. So I checked it out on a decent headset and found out they were right. ](*,)

I loved them all. Which dulcimer is that Judy? I really need to record something with the Burke D.
