Hi Phil, thanks for the response:) The Hambas is a beautiful instrument and sounds great in the videos you directed me to. I'm curious as to what other builders' dulcimers you own. They must be pretty special to have been the "keepers" when you were thinning out! Unless it was just the fact that it was a baritone not being played much that caused you to give the Hambas up.Yes, my dulcimer is a David Lynch. I really do love it, great sound and volume (I have a built in pickup) and it is the only dulcimer I have. I first bought a Folkcraft off Craigslist, but sold that one when I had the Lynch built. I'm in the mode/mood where I just want another, but want it to be something different than what I already have. Like maybe a chromatic.... do you play a fully chromatic?
Thank you Phil, best wishes to you and family for 2015, Val.
Thanks Phil, I have that site and several more. Check out coloradodulcimerfestival.com/jamtunes/ if you don't already have it. Am working on Swallowtail Jig lately and it's a fun project although I'm a might slow. Many are tabs and some are not. I can't read music so I am a tab only player. I have to choose my mountains carefully. Great to hear from you. GEAUX TIGERS...
Thanks Phil,wasn't that a great game. Videos weren't too great but I'm working on sound problems and I just found out about mirror image, that's why LSU shirt said USL. Computers give me fits. I may have to get a teenager over to straighten out my problem. GEAUX TIGERS...
Hi Phil. Trying to show John how to type messages. He's somewhat technologically challenged.
Delighted to be your friend, Phil. Thanks!
I'm a newbie but with a music background so I do appreciate good playing, even if I can't emulate it yet! Thx again for sharing your videos.
My pleasure Phil, a delight to listen to !

Phil my friend...YOU ROCK! :) You're playing is fantastic....love your style and your sound. Which dulcimer did you record june apple/going to boston on?? Doesn't sound like your MMD, so maybe the Yocky??
Thanks Phil - you are quite a player youself! I lovethe tunes youposts - You have a very differnt playing style to mine and that's one of the great things about the dulcimer, it is so adaptable!
Hey Phil, another great post on June Apple/Goin to Boston!
Phil, loved your version of "Reuben's Train", awesome! And thanks for posting it, made me pull out the tab and try it on for size! Fun song!!
I'm glad i reminded you of it, now I can listen to yours and see where i've gone wrong and fix mine. I am just now beginning to be able to pick out tunes by ear and am really enjoying it. So thanks again.
