Years ago our dulcimer club played that tune. It's a long shot, but if I can find the tab, I'll send it to you.

I managed to work this out years ago. I play it now in DGG rather than DAd or GDd but the tab will work for the DAd or GDd as it is a 1-5-8 tab

E-2 del-4 weiss-8, E-7del-4 weiss-3
E-2 very-2 morn-2 ing-3 you-4 greet-5 me-4
Small-2 and-4 white-8 clean-7 and -4 bright-3
You-2 look-4 hap-4 py-5 to-6+ meet-7 me-7
Blos-8 som-4 of-4 snow-6+
May-5 you-4 bloom-2 and-4 grow-7
Bloom-5 and-7 grow-8 for-7 ev-6+ er-4
E-2 del-4 weiss-8, E-7 del-4 weiss-3
Bless-2 my-4 home-4 land-5 for-6+ ev-7 er-7

The original tab I did was in Ionian for a 1-5-5 tuning like DAA or CGG. If you want to play DAA just add 3 to all the fret numbers and you'll find the resolving note is a 10 which is the higher octave note than the opening note of the scale on 3.

Hope this helps

Great version in a book called Soundings by Anna Barry I think. Someone can correct me here because this is where I heard about the book and bought it.

Yes, Anna does have a wonderful version in her "Soundings" book, along with a few others from various Broadway shows and musicals. I can't remember off-hand what tuning she used for Edelweiss.

She has about 80 tunes in that collection which she originally published in the early 1980's. You can get more information about the book, including the complete list of tunes, ordering information, etc, by clicking here:

Soundings by Anna Barry

You do have to be willing to re-tune a bit to play her arrangements, but the results are well worth the effort!

Cheers,

I took a group to Colorado for a week. After I dropped them off I was finished with them till time 7 days later to bring them home. I had just received the book a day before leaving and took 3 dulcimers with me and tuned them all different. Had a blast with exploring that book and the different tunings that week. I know the hotel owner quite well and he came to check on me after the second day because neither he,or his family had seen me for two days. He laughed and about noon and dinner time there would be a knock on my door and a plate of German homecooked meal. I never could get him to admit they were responsible and never could time it to catch them at itl Just a note with it saying they enjoyed the music and keep playing. Amazed me cause I really am not a very good player but enjoy what I do.

What a digression from the subject but just had to share what a great book this is.

I guess it doesn't get any better than that!!! Get to travel, a new dulcimer book, three dulcimers, a quite place to play them for several days, and a hot, home-cooked German meal delivered two times a day.

You just better pray that you never have to get a job!!!!!!!!!LOL

Man, that's the truth. I'm afraid I'm gonna wake up one morning and find it was all a dream sometimes. Brushed shoulder with a lot of people on those ole motorcoaches. A lot of good folk out there. Also had the priviledge of transporting a lot of what one might call people of celebrity status. A lot young men who made it big in major league baseball as well. I truly am blessed when it comes to what I do for a living because it is so diverse. The seniors are a great group. It kinda reminds me of the Judds song, "Grandpa Tell Me 'bout the good ole days". Fun going down memory lane with them. To see the excitment in the children's eyes when they experience something for the first time is amazing. It's the simple things that are important and I guess that is why the MD fits in so well.

Just dawned on me I kinda address about three more threads here.
