SharonA Tune Req: Simple Xmas tunes for hammered dulcimer (5) Tune Req: Simple Xmas tunes for hammered dulcimer 09 Dec 10

Hello, folks! Long time, no log-in. I'm now a member of a local dulcimer-and-autoharp society that formed earlier this year, and we have a lot of beginner-level hammered dulcimer players, of which I am one. This coming Sunday, the society's meeting will be more of a holiday gathering, and the club is planning to have us play Christmas tunes.

We've been asked to bring suggestions of tunes. Given the tuning of a standard non-chromatic hammered dulcimer, which is what most of our HD players use, what are some simple tunes that can be played on the instrument?

My first thought was "The Wassail Song". Other suggestions, please?

Thanks in advance, and Merry Christmas!
