Recorded this at home the other day, using the stick dulcimer and a stomp box. Lyrics and video here.

Splendid! I'm not going to comment on the vocals, 'cause they require no superlatives.

Hope you don't take offence flapjax, but it's crossed my mind when I've heard you using this instrumental combination on other tracks whether you'd consider a cover of this? I think you'd find it suits your vocal and overall delivery to a tee.....

Sorry for being late to the party, I always am.

MD, flapjax made a comment a while back that sums up, en total, how I perceive and enjoy music. It was about Nick Cave, and he said something like, "I WANT to like Nick Cave, but I don't believe him."

It doesn't matter what kind of music it is, Jazz or Punk, if the heart is earnest and honest, man, I'm sold and buying into it emotionally.

Hi flapjax. Whenever you do your thing, whether you're accompanied or not, that earnestness, honesty and depth is right there for the picking. It doesn't require any further fermentation or time on the tree. (Or accompaniment.)

The only other way I can illustrate it is by saying that If you did a folk or roots festival tour you would quickly become a favorite and command the big stage.
