Hi Shaggy

Great to see you again on Saturday and pleased that you're clearly getting on so well with the instrument.

I'll have a think about what might suit you - along the lines of John Shaw's Arthur Robb dulcimer.

All the best.

Geoff

Nice to hear from you, filipinouker! I do have my own dulcimer. Got it toward the end of March after a friend and I attended a dulcimer weekend in Albany, N.Y. We both got hooked! I can play "Pretty Betty Martin," thanks to the YouTube dulcimer lesson by Stephen Seifert, a terrific teacher. I've been playing songs from tablature worksheets from the dulcimer weekend as well as tunes in the beginner Mel Bay book. With encouragement from Louis Stivali, who welcomed me to this site, I did pick out the John Denver tune "Sunshine on My Shoulders." I'm doing well to strum. I love your fingerpicking. Keep it up! By the way, how long have you been playing? You sound really good.

Listened to Doxology and This is My Father's World, and I enjoyed both. I'm a beginner, and I only WISH my playing were as good as yours. Loved the bird song, too.

Hi Shaggy, I talked to the importer today and they should be sending out a batch of gig bags to me either the end of this week or the beginning of next. Robin

Hi Shaggy

Don't worry about the timescale. This is hopefully a choice of instrument for the long-term and we would all understand that it has to be right.

I'm sure John Shaw will now sort it, with new strings etc. But if you have any issues at all, feel free to contact me - as well as John S or John Henry himself of course. I can provide replacement strings to suit, a capo (for moving easily into different modes) and special dulcimer picks. Further details on the site.

...But that may be moving too fast at this stage! Get the dulcimer, enjoy it and then see where it takes you. And glad you enjoyed the afternoon - hope to see you again next time!

All the best. Geoff

It is a lovely version of Oh Susannah. John Henry would call that regional variationGrin.gifI'm trying to learn chord melody and I have to say you are way ahead of meSmile.gif

Fili, you are most welcome! Both you and Jan did excellent jobs on "Oh Susannah", and each video gives us all incentive to learn a song.We all love that "personal" touch that shows up in the process.Grin.gif

Joni used unusual tunings and chords on guitar and dulcimer. I recently found out why. She had polio when she was young and that made her left hand quite weak. She simply couldn't play a lot of the regular chords because of it....so she invented ones she could. Thats why its so hard to reproduce her playing sound.

Absolutely, would far prefer that!

I'm out first thing, back again around 10.30 - 1pm. I'm talking with a customer 1-3, then free from 4-7pm. Try 07817 310083 and you're pretty sure to catch me wherever I am!

Great video by the way - even makes John Henry's dulcimer sound good (only joking John!!).

See you Sunday.

Hi there

Yes, I'm coming on Sunday...and looking forward to meeting you!

I'll bring some dulcimers along for you to try. Let me know if there's any of the ones you've seen on my site that you're particularly interested in.

All the best. Geoff

Max was a very special friendto my wife and I. He had bad back problems and we had to put him down last October. Hewas only eight years old and was easily trained, unusual for dachs, in my experience. In honor of Max, I have ordered a custom fiddle-style mountain dulcimer from Mike Clemmer. The sound holes will be dachshund silhouettes and paw prints! I'm very excited about it. Wildwood Flower will be the first tune played on it. Post some more tunes!Grin.gif

Your welcome. I'm amazed at how good you play. I'm still struggling. I'm not musically inclined. But I really want to play the dulcimer.

Hey ! I have just somehow managed to delete your last, but understand that you may see the Hobgoblin route as the fasted way to see/handle a dulcimer ! No worries, look forward to seeing next week ?

still hope that you won't buy untilyou have seen some of us ?
