Ansis, thank you for sharing both your beautiful dulcimer and Latvian folk song. You are doing well both as a dulcimer maker and player. Keep it up.
"The dulcimer sings a sweet song."
Thank You very much for warm welcome here!
As You can see in my profile, I am from Latvia, where mountain dulcimer is not very known instrument. Actually, all my musically oriented friends never heard of it.
This summer I took a challenge and made a dulcimer by myself. Now I am trying how to play it.
Attached is picture of my handwork and also an audio with my humble attempt to play popular Latvian folk tune.
