Thanks for your comment on my video. The sound qaulity is pretty bad, it's #8 on my playlist if you want to hear it with Octave Mandolin and Tin Whistle.The song wasnt inspired by anything in particular...when I was mixing it down in the studio I thought it sounded kind of dreamy, so thats where the name came from.

Thanks for that Nancy. I too (like many I think), made that immediate connection to the dulcimer when I first heard it. There are not a lot in Australia, so even as a beginner people take an interest if they come across me playing it. After only two months i dont know how i ever lived without it. I am so gladthe dulcimerhas enabled you to return to playingmusic. Cheers, HelenSmile.gifSmile.gif

Nancy, thank you for the nice comments on my video and dulcimer. I have since learned the song, Ill Fly Away, is still under copyright so can not be added to FOTMD. I can include a link here to it and my other videos.

Hi Nancy, and welcome to the world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people. I am pleased to hear that you can once again make music.

Welcome, Nancy, to this little corner of dulcimer heaven. Lots of us have opinions that might be considered "tips," however, in reality they are still just opinions. I've had pretty good luck on ebay buying dulcimers, only a couple of losers. Hope you enjoy it here.
