I was all set to buy my first dulcimer but wanted to see if I could get hands on lessons from anyone in the New York City area-no luck. So the question is: will I be able to learn this instrument from videos like the Dulcimer school? Maybe I can get Skype lessons. I could get guitar or ukelele lessons but would rather learn the dulcimer. I play piano but have never played a string instrument before and the dulcimer supposedly has an easier learning curve. Any input?
Welcome to FOTMD, Mark! I'd be happy to correspond with you about dulcimer purchases, having bought many over the years. Go to my page and click the Follow button. I'm sure the Beginners group will be helpful, as well.
Welcome to FOTMD, Mark. It is good to have you aboard.
