I’ve been studying dulcimer at Hong Kong University for some time now. I guess my studies are starting to influence my playing. As they say in HK, thank you for your nice comments Derek!

Cool approach and video, Rick. Kind of asian dulcimer like sounding.

Thank you Keith! I always appreciate your likes and support.

Thank you John! I’m basically a contrarian, so that’s a super duper compliment. My Swampy does have a nice acoustic tone to it. I was just practicing getting ready to plug into my wall of amplifiers, and I realized I like the simple Witch tone, stripped and naked. She was putty in my hands...don’t tell Pick. It’s this reputation thing ha!

Thank you Dave! I’ve had  this in YouTube storage for almost a year now. It almost got as much views as if I posted it. I was a little reluctant to post. It is satirical, controversial, metaphorical, and just plain pandemic bitching. But what a better place than the Nation. Hypnotizing and mesmerizing was my goal, and of course the monetary contributions.

I now have neighborhood love and credibility now Alan. That’s worth a lot to some people. I’m sure this quiet playing wound last long. And I was at CallyFest Hotel, had the place to myself....what was I thinking! This is a sign of senior citizen disability. Thanks Alan, I needed a defibrillator man to straighten me out ha!

Thanks Pick, much appreciated

Now that’s a very funny analogy Pick ha! Taking ugly  and trying to make something out of it. Kiss that is. No Kiss and no pyrotechnics here, just a bare naked Witch. I do have a lawyer on retainer....just in case there’s a law against unplugging and playing a Swampy.

Don’t tell Pick I’ve been teaching my Swampy Japanese A.D! There’s a grey area in the small print of the owners contract. Wow. Thanks for the inspiring comments. Finger art on my iPad, not to bad for a guy who has trouble and fear of stick people.....drawing them that is. Thanks A.D!

That really is not often done.  Works.  Really nice vocals and mood.   I like this one a lot.  Album worthy.
