Subject: RE: Chord ADD: Now Is the Cool of the day (Ritchie)
Hello, Karen. I play dulcimer too. I listened to 'Now is the Cool of the Day' on YouTube and sounded most of it out. It is a minor song and will take a tuning such as DAG or maybe DAC.

If you are familiar with those tunings, it should be easy to memorize the tune and sound it out. The Rockfish church is singing it in Am, and the English male group is using Bm.

I prefer the tone of the English group, but I have to tell myself to be tolerant about the way they pronounce 'garden.'
