  • Watch this video of "I'll Fly Away" by Martin Moore. He's added pizzazz by playing the hymn in 3 keys, starting with D, moving up to G, and finishing up in C. You may like to buy Martin's CD named "My All I Bring." This is a collection of traditional hymns with an interesting mixture of hammered dulcimer, mountain dulcimer, and acoustic guitar.

  • This version of "I'll Fly Away" by Justin Watkins is interesting because he builds the intensity of his playing verse by verse, and uses every area of his instrument.

  • Here's another variation on "I'll Fly Away" played by Jess Dickson, and he gives credit for the arrangement idea to Dan Landrum. Jess used a damper on parts of the tune to emphasize the driving rhythm in this arrangement.
