I've been in my own boat sitting out in this water looking at this view. Awesome!-Sandee. This is a Tip of The Hat to Sandee, my Co-Author and blog wizard.

The Blogger's Prayer

Lord help me to learn to spell without spellcheck, manage to visit all that visit me, and post regularly - all in 5 minutes a day, so that I can clean house and take care of my family. Help me to not look at every occurrence in my life as a blog post, and to quit taking pictures of weird things to share as well. Please Lord, help me to stop talking about my blog friends as though they are next door neighbors or someone I have known all of my life. And help me dear Lord, to think of something witty and wise to post tomorrow.

Music Monday and Monday's Music Moves Me

Etienne de Lavaulx playing Let It Be on a 1925 German Zither

Loch Lomond played on hammered dulcimer by Timothy Seaman

Irish Washerwoman - Hammer Dulcimer Played With Household Item

Black Watch Pipes & Drums


  1. Of course, my favorite of the four was the last one. Good thing I had to go to YouTube to listen, because I didn't remember the songs. I heard the Pipes, drums and regimental Band of The Black Watch about 40 years ago, and they played most of the songs that they played here. The first set they do are all the quick marches of the companies of the First Battalion; the second are several slow marches and a couple more quick marches.

    All of these were excellent, and you reminded me of one I should have remembered: "The Third Man Theme" by Anton Karas. Oh well, can't get them all...

  2. Joh Holton,glad you enjoyed the tune,I'm going to have to check out the Third Man Theme on you tube. :) :-h d-)

  3. That was wonderful! The young man with many ways to play the dulcimer is impressive. While i don't always comment, i have been enjoying all the music you've posted lately.

  4. Oh, you made my day with the bagpipes. Listening to that video while preparing to go to work. Have a great week! Alana

  5. Mike,

    I am not surprised that you selected songs using the dulcimer. I like the sound very much but I think I like the German Zither a wee bit more. The bagpipes & drums YT clip wouldn't play on your site but directed me to go to YT which I did. I used bagpipes songs for all my choices this week. Come by to listen when you get a moment. Have a boogietastic week, my friend!

  6. Hi Mike,
    Excellent song choices for this theme. I love that 1925 German Zither. It's beautiful and "Let It Be" sounds fantastic on it.
    Also loved the hammered dulcimer. And the whole video on YouTube was incredible.
    Thanks for playing along with my theme. I am having fun with it; hope you are too.
    Have a great week,

    Michele at Angels Bark
