Wayfarin' Stranger is going to be hard to do in DAA, since it's a minor song. We play it in DAD, capoed at the first fret, which gets us into Em. Ok - you DAA players, how do you handle minor songs? Missy

I retune to DAC for Aeolian or actually to CGBflat (A#). Play on, FF

I don't play in Daa much anymore. I'd retune to play Wayfaring Stranger.

Wayfaring Stranger is a re-tune to Aeolian Mode or Dorian Mode. From Ionian you can also play it capoed at the first fret. If you start the scale at the 4th fret, you'll be using Dorian of E (and, conveniently, many of your familiar DAA chord shapes will produce pleasing accompaniment and harmonies.) If you start at the capo, you'll be using Aeolian of B (on the melody and middle strings) or Aeolian of E on the Bass string. Wayfaring Stranger tab is in almost every dulcimer book, and should be at "sniff.numachi", perhaps Grandfather clock as well. I guess someone needs to write a "Where to find Tab" article for ED so we can say "go there" instead of repeating the common tab sites everytime someone asks...

Hey KenH - I put this in the FAQ section on here a while ago, is this what you were thinking of? "How do I find TAB for "XYZ" song? 1) Check on here, the Everythingdulcimer.com website to see if the TAB is one of the many listed: http://everythingdulcimer.com/tab/ There are currently 293 songs listed, many in both DAA and DAd tunings, contributed by various members - with the bulk of thanks going to Steve Smith. 2) Remember that many of our dulcimer "professionals" have TAB books of their own published. Many have accompying CD's or tapes, so even if you don't know the tunes, you can listen and get a feel for them. If you can't get to a festival to pick up a book, there are several web sites available to purchase from, including: Gary Sagers shop: http://www.prussiavalley.com Tom has put a search engine in the header so you can put a song title in and see if it's in a book Gary handles. You can also look at the books page and click on a title to see all the songs in a particular book. Kerry Anderson's website: http://www.gilamountaindulcimers.com/ and many others listed in the links section of E.D.: http://everythingdulcimer.com/links.php Also check out the marketplace on E.D.: http://everythingdulcimer.com/marketplace/ If all the above fail to get you your TAB, then put a request on the discussion portion of this website."

Actually Missy, I was thinking of not just the ED Tab section, but other Internet sites where there is a lot of the many kinds of music we seem to be interested in: Mudcat Cafe http://www.mudcat.org/threads.cfm Old Mudcat Database w/ Dulcimer Tab Maker http://sniff.numachi.com/~rickheit/dtrad/ ABC Tune Finder http://trillian.mit.edu/~jc/music/abc/FindTune.html Contemplator http://www.contemplator.com/ Medieval Music Finder http://www.providence.edu/dwc/medmus.htm Cyber Hymnal http://www.cyberhymnal.org/ All Tabs (dulcimer, guitar, mando etc.) http://www.alltabs.com/

Then what's the tab in D A D? I can play in D A D, but my instructor personally prefers to play in D A A.

Oh, by the way, not too many folks seemed to mention Grandfathers Clock. A book with it or anyone here who could share the tab (and chords) with me?
