Navigation etc.

This little improvisation is made on a digital piano with the artificial sound "dulcimer". The intention was to imitate the style of traditional Norwegian folk dances of type "Springar", and the way how they are performed on the Norwegian dulcimer "Langeleik". The Langeleik is very close ly related and similar to the Appalachian dulcimer, but the style of playing is different. The melody was invented by me, but is quite close to some real Norwegians "Springar" dance melodies.
