First recorded Dulcitar tune - Cotton-Eyed Joe World

As promised, here is the link to the first tune I've recorded with Alberto, the Dulcitar. "Cotton-Eyed Joe" is the only song that has made the jump from dulcimer to Dulcitar, so I decided to have some fun with it. I used a world beat drum loop from Garageband 3 and then arranged the tune so that it built up with slow, dramatic chords and then launched into a fiddle-style riff. Except for the drum loop, everything you hear is Dulcitar, including the bass. I'm using a DigiTech GNX2 effects module to get the different sounds, but left the main lines pretty clean to let the Dulcitar shine through. It's only two minutes long and was thrown together in about forty minutes.
