Thank you, Ben. I am a long way from you and think I am one of very few dulcimer owners in my country. I need to do a lot more work on my own and then I can start asking "silly questions" on here.nod

I am still searching for a Dulcimer instructor here in my neck of the woods without much luck. I take Mandolin Lessons at a local music school about 30 miles from home but the don’t offer dulcimer.  I have texted with a local woman who plays Dulcimer and has offered to meet with me for an informal meet and play. Wish me luck.

Benjamin- Thanks for the welcome to this amazing group.

Currently I'm taking baby steps on my cigar box Dulcimer I purchased in September. More recently I found a cheap $25 teardrop Dulcimer for sale at a thrift store. Surprisingly it sounds pretty decent. No 6 1/2 fret, so I kept looking. Took the plunge and bought a McSpadden hourglass Dulcimer off E-bay. It is being shipped to a friend who is a luthier in Nevada and I will be flying down from Alaska in a month to pick it up. Pretty Excited.

Greetings from Southend-on-sea in the Uk

Having only just discovered messages from FOTMD in my spam, this is the first time I have logged in so apologies for not replying sooner to your welcome message which is appreciated.  

I'm waiting for my instrument (a Sweetwoods Student) to arrive so, right now, my MD activities are restricted to watching You Tube videos and reading up.

Looking forward to getting involved here.

 

Eric
