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.

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.
