MY HAMMERED DULCIMER

MY HAMMERED DULCIMER
There are various Hammered Dulcimer postings from YouTube of different tunes, and NO I AM NOT PLAYING ANY OF THESE TUNES.Maybe some day when I have the equipment to do so.I have included a link to my You Tube Channel.I invite you to go and watch any of my videos on the site also check out some of the different channels I subscribe to.

ABOUT THE HAMMERED DULCIMER

The hammered dulcimer is an ancient trapezoidal musical instrument played by striking the strings with wooden hammers.

Originating in the Middle East about 2000 years ago, English soldiers brought the instrument back to England after their failed attempt to conquer Persia during the Crusades about 1000 years ago. Dulcimers have many names in many lands: santur in the Middle East, yang q'in in China, hackbrett in Austria, zither in Germany, and cymbalom in Hungary. The name "dulcimer" is derived from Latin, meaning "sweet sound". Hammered dulcimers were popular in England during the reign of James I, when the Bible was translated into English as the King James Bible. The dulcimer was mentioned in the Book of Daniel 3:5 among other instruments "..the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of music..." The dulcimer was later mechanized to become what we now know as the harpsichord which later evolved in the piano.

THE SERENITY PRAYER

THE SERENITY PRAYER
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; enjoying one moment at a time; accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; that I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him forever in the next. Amen. - Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)

Very sad day.

I had prewritten my post and posted it before I turned on the TV this morning and heard about Las Vegas (it happened about 1AM my time so I had no idea...) What a sad day. My heart goes out to everyone affected. What can be said? Also, as I post this comment, news media has retracted the "Tom Petty dead" but it doesn't sound good if he indeed, still is alive. If the worst is true, may he forever RIP and thank you for the quick tribute. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

John Holton and Bookworm,Yes Indeed.

It is so sad, my heart aches for all who were hurt, all who lost loved ones, and all of us that we have to live in fear now.

Joyce Lansky said...

It is a sad day indeed.

Mike Golch said...

messymimi,yes we do indeed.

Mike,

There's so much sadness in our world. I just learned this mews on Michele's blog (Angel's Bark) and asked Google to confirm which yielded a link of a family member confirming the singer's death. The man sure produced some great rock n' roll mewsic in his career which will forever be with us even though he's crossed to the other side. Saying prayers for the Petty family, as well as those affected by the Las Vegas shooting. Thanks for joining the 4M crew, my friend!

Hey Mike,
I did a Tom Petty playlist too. What a huge loss. He was incredibly talented and has such a substantial body of work. I never heard his Runaway Train so thanks for including that one.

It's been a terribly sad time and I've been feeling low all week. I cancelled everything I had going this week. Just didn't feel like doing anything...

Michele at Angels Bark

Mike Golch said...

Cathy kennedy,I enjoyed his music as well and now he is part of the great rock and roll band in heaven along with his Travelling Wilburs band mates (we only still have Bob Dylan and Jeff Lynne left from that group)

Michele Truhlik,be right over to chech out what you posted.

Stacy Uncorked said...

It was a very sad day - thanks for sharing great music, Mike.

Cynthia J. Coleman said...

It was a very sad day. I don't think that concerts and festivals will be the same after what happened in Vegas. It was sad that Tom Petty was said to be dead just before he really died.

mike spain said...

Very sad news, Tom Petty was a musical legend
