Thank you Ben for the welcome. Look forward to being involved
Hi Ben, Thank you for the warm welcome. Yes, I love Duluth, too. I've only been living here for five years, but I hope it's a permanent fit. Pam
Many thanks for your tips on Scarborough Fair, I will use them to improve my playing.
Hi Ben, it's a small world - I am thoroughly Scottish, born and raised in Edinburgh. I have / had family in New Brunswick though; one family member was mayor of Fredericton (I think in the '60's but I don't know for sure). I've visited the clan home (Castle Duart on the Isle of Mull) - beautiful area. I've attached a photo of the whirlpool. Good whisky to be had in the area too!
Hi Ben, thanks for the warm welcome! I'm looking forward to learning more, and in the course of time to sharing more. Just so you know, Corryvreckan is a whirlpool off the west coast of Scotland; it is very close to where my clan is based, hence my choice of name :)
Thank you for the welcome. I am looking forward to learning to play this beautiful instrument.
That is true--Thanks for the welcome back!
Thank you so much.
Thank you, Folks for all your warm welcomes!
I don't know anyone locally (Grafton NSW Australia), who plays. so I'm going a bit by braille! If there's anyone you know who plays and is closer to home, I'd love to know how to contact them, or please put them in contact with me.
I guess my first challenge is knowing what chords to start memorizing. Ultimately I want to play chord/melody style, but I guess simple backing chords might be a logical first step. I'm starting with DAdd tuning, but again want to experiment with tunings as I progress. I have access to 3 dulcimers, 1 small homemade one which has a traditional fretboard (no 6.5 fret), 1 larger professionally made one with a 6.5 fret, and a middle sized custom-made one with both a 1.5 and a 6.5 fret, so I've plenty to explore.
Musically I'm drawn to traditional Celtic music.
Thanks again for making me feel welcome,
Thanks for the welcome. Looking forward to learning more about the mountain dulcimers. It soothes my soul.
Thanks Ben, Glad to be here! Looking foward to a new journey!
