Thunder on the Rails - CB dulcimer demo

I wrote this new folk tune on this cigar box dulcimer I made. The box is a large retail display box for cigars, poplar neck, oak fingerboard. Played acoustically. Tuned DGD.

Thank you Dave. I was happy the volume came out. I used the bottom of the box for the top since the lid was so thick, but you still never know. :)

"Nice Dulci & Song Derek"  :-)

I for the most part never like Dulcimers, never got into the sound or songs played on them, just not my taste, that being said, your singing/song/sound was very enjoyable!

Very good song, singing and playing.  That lap dog has a nice tone and volume.
