Go Tell Aunt Rhody

I woke up this morning humming “Go Tell Aunt Rhody” and knew I had to try it on the harmonica with a dulcimer accompaniment.

It’s probably way too early in the process to be trying a performance, but I just couldn’t resist giving it a go. It’s pretty rough.

Many moons ago my brother Bob helped me build a dulcimer.

Dulcimer

It was a bit tricky tuning the dulcimer to the harmonica. I found it sounded best with an “A” harmonica.

I recorded this in Garageband. I did the dulcimer first and then played along with the harmonica in a second track. I edited the volume of each track and panned the dulcimer slightly left and the harmonica slightly right. I didn’t do a bunch of “takes”. This was just a practice session to figure out how to do it.
