Hi Benjamin. Thanks for the welcome. I'll just probably remain with the one I have. At 74 I don't really want to learn a new tuning. I've done well with the DAA and am happy with just doing that. I have another dulcimer tuned to CGG. I tried tuning it to DAD but the strings slip. I probably need new strings on that one. I just find it hard locating music for DAA tunings but then I usually just figure out my own arrangements anyway.

Just from what I've seen so far in this site and following links, there is a lot more to know than I'd thought.

Ben, are you traveling Skyline Drive through Shenandoah National Park? Betty and I worked at Loft Mountain back in the early 1970s. Just be aware the maximum speed through the park is 45 mph. Don't take it if you want to hurry home. Will you be coming through Pennsylvania?

Thank you Benjamin, I'm very excitedly awaiting my dulcimer from America, will arrive at the end of March I hope. I already play guitar very basically, I'm looking forward to learning new things.

Hi Ben,

I'm not sure this will show up the right way in the right place, but THANKS for your welcome! I'm sure I will learn a lot, receive a lot of inspiration, and hopefully learn enough and play well enough some day to be able to "give back" and contribute meaningfully. Have a great day!

Fumble Fingers :-)
