hey Keigh, hope all is well in Chicago area for you. What type of dulcimer is that in the picture of a dulcimer with your cat? I'd never scene one like that before.

If you meet FOTMD friends abroad, I imagine many of them have more than one mountain dulcimer and would be happy to share.Smile.gif

Hi Keigh and tnx for the nice comments on the Canadian Medley that I posted recently. Actually my brother & I do have a CD entitled "A Selection of Homegrown Canadian Tunes". I have it advertised on this site somewhere - can't remember where...

I've sold a few from this site as well as ED.com - $10 a piece + shipping.

I don't have many of the tunes TAB-bed out yet though - maybe 2 or 3 so far.

Thanks for your compliments on Lincoln and Liberty. That was the first tune I ever learned on the dulcimer.

Cheers,

Folkfan, I was reading thro stuff as I do at 0130 european Time & I noticed you mentioned arthritis in your strumming hand, and your method of taping a plectrum to yout thumb. have you seen a thing called Shark Tooth ,they have a web site www.Strum-n-comfort.com . Might be just what you are looking for. I got mine from Elderly Music a couple of years ago but have never used it, but that does not mean I won't at some time in the future. Just a thought, hope you dont' mind me adding my two cents.Smile.gif

Keigh,

I just realized that I didn't respond to your comment about my CD. Thanks for the kind words--I'm really glad you enjoyed it!

I think I'm going to have a chance to meet Dave in person next month! I'll be driving home from Indy on the 15th or so of May and Warrensburg is just not that far out of the way! I'll have to wait a bit longer to meet you, but I look forward to that day whenever it comes!
