Hello, definitely up for a dulcimer meet in Edinburgh at some point! It's probably easier to get hold of me by email - I'm robindouglasjohnson@gmail.com .

As for recording, I'm no expert, but I use a "bizzy bee" contact mike (about £30, I got mine from Scayles in Edinburgh) and a cheapish guitar amp and connect the phones socket of that to the microphone socket of my laptop. It seems to work, but I do get some annoyances with distortion and the laptop occasionally going deaf that I can't figure out.

Hello Brian. I've only just spotted the friend request button on my home page!! I'm pretty new to the Dulcimer, but played it to the public for the first time last week - they were an elderly audience, so I gave them some hymn tunes and a couple of Gaelic tunes - The Fairy Lullaby and An Eriskay Love Lilt. Think I pulled them off pretty well. How's your playing, and where do you do it? AD

Tapadh leat !

Ah brang it wi' me tae Walsall.... ( Mind you, they barely speak English here either. )

It's really my mothers' tongue and an interest I developed a few years ago over some of the songs she used to sing and the Gaidhlig language, which she spoke.

Just listened to track 1 of your own playing. Nice sound and style...will have a listen to a few more.

Pete.

Hi Brian. I loved the three tracks you posted. Its great to hear someone getting their own sound from a dulcimer. I would love to hear more. I have been considering changing my first dulcimer (student model by Sweetwoods) over to equidistant spacing. Just for something different. Your sound clips have convinced me to try it. Can I ask what tuning u used for the songs you posted?

Brian,

Apologies for not getting back to you earlier. My brother died just before your email, and there has been a good deal of disruption as a result, and I have not been back on the site for some time.

Yes, it is a nice part of the world down here, and we are lucky to live in it. Maybe some time when you are down we could meet up?

Doug

Hi Brian,

Apologies for my tardy response, I can only say in my defence that I've been preoccupied with various things. I'm in Edinburgh quite a lot so it would be good to meet up. There are a couple of other players in Edinburgh who I've neglected of late - I must do better in the new year.

Peter

HI Brian, and welcome to the world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn and exchange ideas about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people. I noticed that you are from the UK and there is a UK group at the top of the page under the heading for groups.
