Hopefully an ED member can provide you with the Cold Frosty Morning tab, but if not, it is available in a book I just came across on this site:

Meanwhile, I'll ask my dulcimer afficionado, Joy if she knows the tab. The lady has a memory like an elephant.

Going over past postings, I read that one member, musicman47, has the tab for Cold Frosty morning. At least he had it when he wrote the post because he said he was practicing it.

I emailed him requesting the tab, but haven't heard back yet.

Cold Frosty Morning in DAD is in Stephen Seifert's Join the Jam book.

When you're playing "Cold Frosty Morning" out of DAD tuning, are you playing it in D? Or are you capoing at the fourth fret and playing in A minor/A modal? If it's the tune I'm thinking of, most folks play it in A minor. I can't think what it would sound like in D major.

I'm pretty sure there is TAB for it in the key of A in one of Lois' books.

Cold Frosty Morning in Stephen's book is played DAD, capo on the 4th fret which gives you A minor.

After first trying "Cold Frosty Morning" in DAD capo 4, I tried it in DGD capo 1 (A minor scale), and it worked out sounding better to me and played easier. This arrangement is in my book DULCIMER FIDDLE TUNES, available for download at:

http://downloads.melbay.com/sheet.asp

Click on "Dulcimer" then "Mountain Dulcimer" the "Mountain Dulcimer (All)" and "Dulcimer Fiddle Tunes."

Geez, I would have thought dulcimerists were at least a little more mellow.

FYI I buy dozens of music books and sheet music for the instruments I play. However, I see nothing wrong with transcribing notes or tab for a song I hear on the radio that I want to try. Likewise, sharing a single tune with another musician once in a blue moon doesn't seem all that severe to warrant chastisement.

Like none of you have ever heard a song played at a festival or jam session and jotted down the notes to try it out yourself when you're home alone...sounds like the pot calling the kettle black.

So sorry I attempted to help out. Won't happen again. I'd rather make music than argue.

Consider me chastised and repenting.

Or... you could buy the book by Lois or Steve and get a lot more really good songs at the same time (while supporting those who make music for a living and do so much to promote our dulcimers)

If you buy the book you won't have to worry about the Copyright Police busting down your door at 2 AM, rousting you, your family and the pet dog, cat and goldfish out into the street while they search your house for the scraps of paper with illegally copied tab that you have had hidden all over the house in strange and hopefully obscure places such as taped to the back of the toilet tank, underneath the cats litter box, and in the bottom of the gold fish bowl.
