Thank you for the welcome Richard. I am a long time wood carver so I guess the wood work in the various dulcimers caught my eye. I am looking forward to being a member in FOTMD.    Thanks again  Frank

Thanks for the warm welcome, Richard.  I'm taking up the MD later in life and am just now awaiting delivery of my first instrument.  Having played drums and percussion for a long time now, rhythm and timing is not an issue for me, but learning melodic theory is quite new to me (although I've played a bit of guitar and piano), so that's where I'm putting my attention while I await the dulcimer's arrival.  Looking forward to learning from you folks.

Thank you for the warm welcome Richard.  Really looking forward to participating in this community.  What I have read on the Dulcimer is that it is an easy instrument to learn.  But I haven't found anything easy about it yet!! lol This may just be what I need to get me going. Looking forward to the journey.
