    It was the Atlantic Ocean at the Outer Banks National Seashore. If you haven't been there, you need to make a date.

    The sound to the west of me, the ocean to the right, stuck in the middle with you.

    This is the cimbalom, or dulcimer, played by Hungarians, Romanians, Gypsies and others.

    It is a delicate, interesting instrument and can convey any emotion beautifully.

    Try this, as an example.

    This is another taste of this instrument's versatility - and ability to provide exciting, beautiful sounds.

    Two cimbalom virtuosos playing together; Balogh Kalman and Lukacs Miklos; (the last names come first in certain nationalities)

    I saw Kalman live (he's on the left) and people from the audience were dancing in lines. Wonderful to see.

    Nice - free form piano like. Neat.

    Could this be a classic rock and roll song?

    Is your first comment re my cimbalom entry? If so, I would be interested in any further reaction.

    10,000 maniacs for the brief taste I took.

    Yes, it was. I've never seen such an instrument. The range of sound is unique. Where you a big fan of "Looney Tunes" as a kid? This reminds me of some of the back round music - maybe as you suggest - to convey an emotion, like "uh oh", or something ominous is about to happen.

    I happen to agree with you on 10,000 maniacs. Natalie Merchant is just soooo deep and smooth.

    No, it wasn't when I was a kid.

    Looney Tunes is now and I am not enjoying it at all.

    Merchant looks real good on that clip. Saw her on television recently. Looks different - but then who doesn't.
