Hi Babs,

I find an older post on this site in which you asked questions about 1-3-5 tuning.  Did you ever pursue that?  I spend so much time playing in FAC that I purchased a second Blue Lion to keep in that tuning.  I would love to find another dulcimer player who uses 1-3-5 tuning for jazz and pop tunes and who would like to share theory, chords and successes.

Hello and welcome to the site. This is a great place to share ideas and listen to music. I hope you enjoy!

Hi Babs

Welcome to the UK section of FOTMD.

If you want to meet others who play the instrument (ALL of whom are still learning!), then join the Nonsuch Dulcimer Club (effectively the UK Dulcimer Club). Lots of goodies, including a quarterly magazine, workshops, resources etc, all for 10 a year!

No event exactly local to the Orkneys I guess, but there is a big dulcimer gathering in Northumberland 22-24 March. Quite a few of our colleagues on your side of the border come to it, and the MD tutor is from Scotland this year.

Shout if you need anything.

All the best

Hi Baabara, and welcome to the 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. I noticed that you are from the UK. There is a UK group that you can join listed at the top of the page under Groups.
