Thanks for the welcome, Ben. Nice to be here.
Thanks for the welcome Ben!
Thanks a lot. Certainly can spend a lot of time here. I was just going to look at a few things and next thing I know an hour has passed by . Watched a few videos on strumming which were interesting.
Thanks for the welcome, Ben. I'm looking forward to being in this group. We moved to Duluth about 40 years ago and continue to love being here.
Thank you! :)
Can someone tell me where I find these "music notes" to indicate a choice on a
video to save it so I can find it later without searching through the whole 64 web
pages? I am only up to page 3 and I want to save Christine Shoemakers (Cabbage)and
Dusty Turtles ( Black Hawk/Westphallia walze combo).
Thanks so much for the nice welcome. I’m looking forward to having somewhere to chat about music and dulcimers. My family is tired of hearing about it lol
Thanks Ben for the nice welcome!
Thanks Ben for the welcome...glad to have found FOTMD!
Thank you for your feedback. My dulcimer seems to becoming an enjoyable journey.
Thank you! Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer looks like a fantastic site and I'm very happy to be here!
Thanks for the welcome! I recently attended my very first EVER Dulcimer Festival in Glen Rose, TX. Now, I am hooked. I have owned a Russell Cook "Wood 'n Strings" 15/16 hammer dulcimer for over 30 years. At one time I could pick out a tune, but I am rusty now. LOL I am in the process of setting up a music room for my Hammer Dulcimer, my Bowed Psaltery, my accordion, and my collection of ukuleles. I would love to eventually add a Mountain Dulcimer to my collection! I am planning on attending Winter Creek in October. Hope to meet some of you there!
Thank you! Looks like a wonderful site!
Many thanks Ben for the welcome This site has already been very helpful to me as a beginner and I look forward to exploring further.
Thank you so much! I am so appreciative of the community & the warm welcome.
Thank you for the welcome. I'm just getting started, coming from a guitar playing background. I seem to be on a quest for simplicity since I have gone from 6- and 12-string guitar, to ukulele, to tenor guitar, to dulcimer! I recently bought an old 4-string equidistant cedar dulcimer shaped like a tulip or a lyre which I plan to post pictures of. I bought a used dulcimer from a well known luthier and finally returned it because the middle string always fretted sharp. I just found a McSpadden M12-W from 1991 locally for $250, and I am thoroughly pleased with it. A lady now in her late 70's bought it at their store in Arkansas with the chipboard case, and it ended up sitting in her closet for 27 years. I measured the strings with a micrometer, and they appear to be the original strings, since the owners manual says the factory strings were 12-12-12-23. It is absolutely pristine. I moved a couple of the end pegs to allow installing a strap attachment. Again thanks for the nice welcome!
Thank you! I am going to wander the halls a bit so I can get a feel for the place, but I think I'm going to like it here.
Thank you, Ben, for the warm welcome. What a great site this is!
