Chicken Charlie Share your latest musical accomplishment (73* d) RE: Share your latest musical accomplishment 21 Jul 01

Actually came up with several things as a result of wife being gone visiting & being able to practice interminably w/o worry. (Dogs just go to sleep.) First was realizing how easy it is to change open-G guitar to open G-minor & with equivalent of a "square roll" pattern, did "Lazarus" in a minor. (Learned it off Dave Van Ronk record; his sounds E maj. to me.) Shady Grove and Ashville Junction also possible. #2 was on "lap" dulcimer (lap-top), doing, of all things, "Sloop John B" with the melody on the bottom, what I call "oboe style" and using the actual melody course for mandolinesque runs and fills. Also just decided to try "Blackjack Davey" on the "laptop." I think there are some instrument-song combos that are born to work naturally, and that was one, the other made-for-dulcimer-like-nothing-else tune being "False William."

Thanks for this thread, Kim!!!!!!!!
