Hello Ben and greetings to Maine. Thank you for welcoming me. I hope here to find  a lot of inspiration for better learning to play my dulcimer. You can say that I am completely a beginner with this instrument. And I live in norther Germany without any traditions with dulcimer playing. But I love the american roots music and I feel I have to learn playing dulcimer more and more.

Have a nice sunday.

Thanks for the friendly welcome, Ben.  I'm having fun so far!  With using a streaming service, everyone pays the dues....covering the music you use that is certainly not PD.  Dulcimer music is not the one mountain voice it was at one time, either.  We're all playing anything we want and writing what we haven't heard yet.....  So, that royalty coverage was necessary.

Hi Benjamin. Thanks for the welcome. I'll just probably remain with the one I have. At 74 I don't really want to learn a new tuning. I've done well with the DAA and am happy with just doing that. I have another dulcimer tuned to CGG. I tried tuning it to DAD but the strings slip. I probably need new strings on that one. I just find it hard locating music for DAA tunings but then I usually just figure out my own arrangements anyway.
