Banjoman_CO Help: why do I sound soooooo amaturish? (38) why do I sound soooooo amaturish? 29 Oct 00

I am learning mountain dulcimer and I am using a book by Larkin Bryant. I also have her tapes to go along with the book. Here's my question: I learn the songs note for note from the tab. I play along with her on the tapes and it sounds great. But..... when I play the songs on my own it sounds so amaturish. Even though they are played note for note, strum for strum, finger for finger... they don't sound the same. WHY Some of you seasoned performers should be able to answer this. Banjoman
