Wow!! You have great ideas. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge; I will try your suggestions. Will let you know how it goes.... you make it sound so natural to do. I hope I can develop that talent!
I'll post if I find any duet books. I can't recall any off hand but I'm sure there are some.
Nina Zanetti has written several books for duets on dulcimer. It might not be too difficult to try her arrangements for BPs.
This is a duet that a fellow mandolin player and I used to play. I see no reason why it wouldn't work for psaltery as well. An old Welsh folk tune.
The last note on the psaltery I part got chopped. It should be a G. Probably I should've made the last note on the psaltery II part be a B instead of a unison G.
On the mandolin, the II part would play chords for the intro. I've substituted some low drones. The last time through the A part contains some variations and a simpler harmony. Feel free to repeat the first A part both or either melody or harmony.
Thanks so much. I'll print it off and
