Punk dulcimer. Cover of the Ramones classic, "I Wanna Be Sedated," played on electric dulcimer by Sam Edelston.

Dulcimers are natural rock instruments. In fact, I even say that dulcimers are among the world's coolest musical instruments, and they deserve to be known by the general public - the way that everybody knows guitars and ukuleles. Though usually associated with old folk songs and tunes, dulcimers are great for a shocking variety of modern music, too. I do these videos to inspire more people to play and listen to dulcimer music, in diverse, non-traditional styles.

Song written by Dee Dee Ramone, Joey Ramone, and Johnny Ramone.

Technical details: Black Wolf electric chromatic 3-string dulcimer built by Rod Matheson, tuned DAD, capoed up a full step and played in E, which is the key of the original recording, and modulating to F#. (The song could be played in D without any special frets, but then you couldn't do the cool modulation.) Two channels of output, Channel A has an octave pedal, overdrive, and chorus, plus a Cry Baby toward the end. Channel B has a separate octave pedal, Mellotron emulator, auto-wah, phase shifter, and compressor/sustainer.
