Product Notes

Writing instrumental music is not an endeavor I purposefully decided to pursue. Over many years of playing extant folk, traditional, and baroque music, I would occasionally sit at the dulcimer or pick up a guitar and, for respite from the discipline of practice, let my hands and the instrument play with each other a bit. Sometimes snippets of melody would catch my attention, and inspired and empowered by my son's development as a professional composer, I began trying to develop a few of these into complete compositions. Upon hearing some of my early efforts, family and friends asked what I planned to do with what I was creating. At the time I had no idea, but this recording is my belated answer to that question. The ideas for a couple of the tunes preceded the music to express them, but most started with the instrument itself suggesting the musical theme, which in turn suggested the title. The album begins and ends quietly with impressionistic pieces. More of these are interspersed in between, along with four tracks that are up-tempo and more traditional in style (reels, hornpipes, and jigs). Seven tracks feature hammered dulcimer as the lead instrument with guitar accompaniment; fingerstyle guitar carries the melody on the remaining six, with hammered dulcimer in an accompanying role. An acoustic bass guitar also appears on many tracks. A variety of alternate tunings and partial capo configurations are used on the guitars.
