This one is a song wrote on a little stringed instrument called a Merlin that a dear friend who has since passed gave me. She said "see what you can do with this thing" or something like that and just gave it to me for free. I told her "I will try" and she said she would do the same with her health. Luckily she was with us for a while longer and said she liked the song even if ...

A sweet sounding instrument and a lovely story of loss, gain and passing love along. I'd love to play along with this, but I'm horribly slow...could be a while.............................................etc.+1

sami Thank you PJE! Really appreciate it and yes, they are kind of a new instrument design. They are usually diatonic so they urge you into a major scale which is fun and makes it easy for people to learn songs on. When you push it into other modes of the diatonic scale you end up with a more mystic sound hence the Merlin name. Now they are called M4's cause somebody sued them I think about the Merlin name. +1

"see what you can do with this thing" is a very unbiased impulse to start a song :) sounds terrefic! :) Merlin seams simliar to an Ukulele, as I browse in the Internet, I can see two strings are paired together? Has itit a Uke or guitar strings tuning?+1

sami Thank you hartmut! I actually don't know exactly about the tuning because on this I tuned it to an open chord without checking to see how they recommend it be tuned. The frets are diatonic though, not chromatic. +1
