  • Lyrics for "Southwind"

  • Listen to this lovely arrangement of Southwind by "Lost Jim" Ohischmidt & Rob Angus. Notice how, in the first verse, the hammered dulcimer lightly plays arpeggios and harmonizing chords as an accompaniment. In the second and third verses, the hammered dulcimer takes the lead, but still keeps the volume in balance with the guitar.
