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.

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 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 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!
