Rick Long has some wonderful MP3 recordings I'd like to share. He also has a bit of advice that I think is important for all of us.
Let me just quote Rick regarding playing with a group
"the psaltery should blend in with the other instruments and not stick out. I get the feeling that some folks think they should play loudly. Just the opposite is true and you should listen to the others to achieve that good blend, like every good good choral director will teach you, "no solos until it's your turn"
Excellent advice Rick and excellent music
Excellent question Jeremy, I'll contact Rick to find out!
Rick sent this information regarding the group that was playing in these recordings.
"They are Terry (dulcimer and banjo) and Pam Lewis (ukulele bass), they host the Spring Cumberland Gap Dulcimer Gathering. They live in Ewing, VA. Mike O'Brian (dulcimer) Elizabethtown, KY. Luther Warf (guitar and vocal), not exactly sure of where he lives, but it is close to the Cumberland Gap area. There was also a guitarist by the name of Ray, also from the area, sorry I can't recall his last name. Great bunch of folks. We all know each other from the dulcimer gathering and jams that Terry and Pam host at the park campground. All but Ray are in this video from last years Sept. jam at the park"
A video of this event is posted on this site, here's the link
