Thank you for the warm welcome Jim. That was the best job I ever had and I'd probably still be there had they survived!

Thanks for the friendly welcome, Ben.  I'm having fun so far!  With using a streaming service, everyone pays the dues....covering the music you use that is certainly not PD.  Dulcimer music is not the one mountain voice it was at one time, either.  We're all playing anything we want and writing what we haven't heard yet.....  So, that royalty coverage was necessary.

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.
