Hi everyone --
Our regular first-Saturday-of-the-month session of the Clayville Pioneer Academy of Music is in the barn at Clayville from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Nov. 5. After giving it a whirl in B minor Tuesday night, we decided to try Ron Zuckerman's dulcimer tab, with guitar chords in E minor, on the Everything Dulcimer website, available at:
Lyrics, with chords, available at:

Afterwards, let's just go around the circle and call fun tunes we enjoy playing. I'm attaching a copy of tab that Judy wrote out of a Swedish song called "I sommarens soliga dagar" (in summer's sunny days). It's not really a session tune, either here or in Sweden, but it certainly qualifies as fun. Debi and I heard it at the annual Nordiska Psalmodikonförbundet meeting in Sweden this summer -- the Swedes sang it after dinner, and we taught them "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall" (yeah, yeah, I guess you had to be there) -- and I wrote it up on my blog Hogfiddle (http://hogfiddle.blogspot.com/2016/08/ostervala-1-i-sommarens-soliga-daga.html). Judy played the embedded YouTube clip, and she decided to tab it out.
Here's a YouTube clip of a family group in Sweden singing, with a keyboard, two guitars and a fiddle:
Let's take a whirl at it. But let's not even think about "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall."
