I've been playing guitar a long time.  Picked up a dulcimer guitar on my honeymoon in 2012, had no idea what it was, but it was pretty fetching.  In early 2019 I decided to embark on making my own instruments and instrument company.  You know what they say, though, "don't quit your day job"!

Hi Ryan, and welcome to the wonderful 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.
