Hi Salt Springs,
thank you very much for your nice comment.
For sure Salt Springs, I can comment on the wildfire at Fort McMurray. It's a city of 88,000 folks located in the boreal forest of northeastern Alberta and servicing the oil sands. On May 1 the city was notified by provincial officials of a wildfire in the forest southwest of the city which may be cause for concern. By Tuesday, parts of the city were on fire, people living south of the Athabasca river bridge were evacuated to the south and people living north of the river bridge were evacuated to work camps in the oil sands and to first nations communities north of the city. About 25,000 folks were sent north. The folks sent south about 60,000 people went out on highway 63 to everywhere else in Alberta, but mostly to Edmonton the capital of the province. The 25,000 people sent north were cut off because of fires in the city, they have now been flown out by special charters and have convoyed out with RCMP assistance and protection. Out of 25,000 structures in the city, approximately 1600 have been destroyed, it looks like a war zone. Albertans and Canadians in general have been assisting in any way that we can, the Canadian Red Cross is accepting monetary donations if you wish to assist. I will post some video of the fire, hope that will be okay with the moderators.

Thank you so much for the quick reply to my very first post on FOTMD! I am also a fan of SRF. That was great - your explanation of the indian scale versus the western scale being a difference of white and black keys. Perhaps that is why I have had some extra difficulty playing by ear (which is not my forte anyway!). Just knowing the melody notes for a few bhajans would be AMAZING. In the meantime, I'll definitely give your tip a try for how to use the drone string : )
Thanks Salt Springs! I recorded that with a Blue "Snowball" USB mic and ran it through Garageband on my Mac. I put a little reverb and a touch of echo.
Welcome Salt Springs. Good to see you here on FOTMD. We look forwrd to your participation. Best wishes.
Welcome, Salt Springs, to this little corner of dulcimer heaven. Hope you enjoy it here.
