http://dcwi.com/dulcimer - Charlie PlaysTurkey in the Straw on the Mountain Dulcimer - appropriate on the day we had our Thanksgiving dinner? This American folk song became popular around 1830. Also sung to this tune are "Do Your Ears Hang Low?" and "I had a little chicken and she wouldn't lay an egg, etc." Great video for beginners to learn this song, as frets and fingering are clearly visible. The dulcimer is made of 150 year old Indiana tulip poplar wood, and features hummingbird sound holes and Grover tuning pegs. This is the 554th Appalachian or lap dulcimer Charlie has built. Charlie has built over 100 hammered dulcimers and has written an instructional book on how to build them, entitled "Hammer Dulcimers - How I Build the Things."
