Bluegrass on chromatic dulcimer

As far as I know, I'm the only person doing this (so far). 3-finger style bluegrass. Enjoy Foggy Mountain Breakdown! :D

This type of picking can be done with fewer frets, but the chromatic really makes it come alive.

I guess you need to change your name to Earl. Great playing. Now all you would need to do is spend six months on the road with Bill Monroe and you can go on to a career in bluegrass. Oops!! He's dead. Seriously, great playing from one of the finest dulcimer innovators!
