CC, it all takes time and practice.  I have taken a long time learning new songs, so I understand; especially since I do not have a musical background prior to picking up the dulcimer.  If I know the tune or can learn the tune, then usually finding tabbed music to the song is a big help.  Often I have to start with only the melody string fingering and use the others for drones.  Lots of luck.

Thanks Ben

I have a question, not sure if this is the right place for questions but here goes.  I am trying to tune my dulcimer to DAD.  It is now tuned to DAA. I have a tuner but when I tune it to DAD it sounds funny. Is there a another DAD that is lower or is there just one level. Not sure if I explained it properly!

Welcome, CC, to this little corner of dulcimer heaven.  If you can't find a local instructor there's always Skype lessons.  Hope you enjoy it here. Rob

Hi Strumelia:  I have been watching your videos on utube and they have helped alot!  I am trying to find someone in my area who can teach me.  I dont think there are many!  I have found some songs that are easy with only 1 number for each note.  Thanks for the welcome!
