G'day Marion... it was so nice of you to follow me. I was just watching your videos... you are a very fine player... i love listening to fingerpicking and your playing is beautiful.  I'd love to see more od your playing if u felt like recording again.

I looked at the site. Seems good, and a tenner's not too bad!

Thank you for your help, and for adding me to your list of friends.

All best,

Deb

Hello marion,

That's great, thanks! I'm really pleased that I googled "mountain dulcimer forum" and arrived at this site. It would be lovely to get together with other players, on-line or face to face.

Thanks again - I'll see if there's anyone near to me.

All best,

Deb

Hallo Marion,vielen Dank fr Deinen netten Kommentar.Ich kann leider nicht englisch,nur deutsch,tschechisch und russisch.

Mein Dulcimer stimme ich ganz unterschiedlich,bei diesem Lied=(D-g-b-d)sind die Seiten gleich auseinander entfernt,deswegen ist Fingerspiel einfacher.Kleinfinger wird bei Barre verwendet,wie Zeigefinger bei Gitarre.Du spielst sehr schn und sauber.

Vielen Dank,Karel aus Freilassing,Germany Smile.gif

Hi Marion, good to meet my first Brit dulcimer player. I see you are conversing with a friend of mine - Gordy Reynolds - who is an autoharper and is involved with the August Autoharp Festival in Moniaive.

Hi Marion, very varied set of activities. I will try and get a copy of the full programme for you. As for campsites, there are a few on google however they are not my cup of tea. Too busy as seaside holiday homes with bars etc however I did see one with great reviews and looks like my choice of site. It is called The Steading Caravan Park. Have a look, just google the name. It is also easy to get to Edinburgh and surrounding areas so possible for a great homebase for doing the tourist stuff.

Hi Marion,

What kind is the dulcimer in your avatar? Also, what kind of ship did the tool box come out of? That is really neat!!! And I COMPLETELY understand about the all of the instruments....I am kind of in the same boat....and love it!!! I had posted a while back - "what do you call a collection of dulcimers"....and there were some funanswers. Also - how many dulcimers does a dulcimer player need....just one moreGrin.gif

I have a banjammer and I am just kind of working on some fingerpicking. I am having fun with it, but I am working a lot of hours so not doing to much picking right now.

By the way Marion - I LOVE your Avatar - it's beautiful!

Hi Marion,

Well please keep me posted - I love my baritone and have never regretted getting it! There was a little music shop about an hour away in a little tiny "town" that hosted dulcimer get-togethers and workshops. That's where I found mine - and HAD to have it after the first strum....hahaha!

I also have a Blue Lion and love it too! That's cool the way you play Little Drummer Boy - I hadn't thought of that - although I did go to a workshop once where they had us try different ways of playing - including using a pencil - probably the way you use your chopsticks. I hadn't thought about doing that for a long time!

Anyway, good luck whatever you decide Smile.gif

Keep strumming and smiling!

Cindy

Hi Marion, a little afterthought - regarding the baritone - there is no one instrument that can play "Little Drummer Boy" the way the baritone can Smile.gif

And honestly - the first time I touched this instrument - I HAD to have it! So glad I did!

Yes. I'm sure It will be very helpful ... and it's always nice when someone who plays beautifully recommends something that helped them on their journey!

I'm still awaiting the delivery of my Ron Gibson dulcimer - a Jenny Lind, in curly maple with an aromatic cedar sound board. It is taking its time travelling across the worldSmile.gif

I appreciate your encouraging words, Marion - many thanks!

Hi Marion,

Just wanted to thank you for recommending that Mike Casey book "Hands on Dulcimer", I've just ordered a copy from Amazon. I'm going to be relying on books, dvds, and videos from FOTMD, as there are not many people playing the dulcimer over here in Australia. Let me know if there's anything else that will help an absolute beginner Smile.gif

best wishes

Lesley
