Music: Mountain Dulcimer

Well, I got my dulcimer book out this morning and looked at it.

Now I know what pitch to tune the strings to!!! That's the first step!!

Then I'll look and see what I'm able to do with it.

I'm looking forward to it.

Comments:
I've always wanted a dulcimer. There's a dulcimer shop in town, but they are expensive there. This guy named Warren May hand makes them here in Berea.
 
I knew a guy very casually from Mountain Home, AR who made dulimcers. Lee somebody I think. Also, I have an old lp of dulcimer music. Nice.
 
I do believe I fell in love with dulcimers when I was very young and had a child's one - that was when I discovered I was a listener not a player. I still enjoy listening.
 
I have a friend who hand crafts them in Hannibal, MO. I'll eventually buy one from him when I get my fiddle paid for.

How neat to have an old lp of dulcimer music!!! Very cool!

Hopefully I'll be able to learn to play it.
