Song I just wrote

Postby GrantOlson » Fri May 13, 2016 5:23 pm

I had a phrase from a song stuck in my head, but I had no idea when I had heard it or what song it was from. So instead I wrote a song around it. Here it is:

Thanks a lot!
No, unfortunately I'm not going.:( I have a one-festival-per-year rule and I already went to one. Are you going? That would be a long way for you!

No... :-(
As much as I would have like to, I won't be heading there this year.
It usually takes me around 10-11 hrs to get there from here.
My brother from Thunder Bay is there right now, and I'm looking 4ward to hearing about the good times he had.

Festivals are always fun. You learn a lot of new songs.
Are there any festivals/clubs near you?

Nope to both questions.
The nearest festival to Hearst Ontario that I'm aware of is in MN, and as far as I know, I'm the only dulcimer player within a 350 mile radius.
We go to a festival in Southern Vermont regularly, and that's an 18 hr road trip.

Sounds pretty lonely! I know there's some in Michigan but that may not be any closer.

I loved that one Grant. Consider submitting that one to Dulcimer Player News to put onto their CD sampler.

Thanks! I didn't know you could submit a song. How does it work?

Go on their website, dpnews.com, and mouse over the About tab at the top to access the submissions menu. I'd read everything there, including the links, to be sure you understand most everything before contacting them.

Yes, I have lot's of fun playing it. Usually the way it works for me is that at certain times I can play around on the dulcimer and come with a really neat song, like this one. Most of the time when I try it it all just sounds the same. But every once in a while I am inspired and I write down what I come up with so I won't forget it :D
