Many thanks, everyone, for your warm greetings.  It's good to be back! And it's great to be playing again.  Didn't realize how much I missed playing until I couldn't.  But I've been working hard to build up the strength in my hands, wrists and fingers. It's been a very slow process, so I hope you'll "bear" with me.  Hopefully, one of these days, I'll be back playing with a vengeance.  On a positive note, I just started working on a new song that should be ready for posting in the spring.  In the meantime, I've posted a few of my older songs that I thought you might enjoy.  All the songs are based on my personal experiences in Yellowstone and my encounters with wildlife over the years.  So, if you enjoy watching the critters, I think you'll like some of the tunes.  Thanks again for your  support and kind words of encouragement.  BSW

Hi Big Sky, and welcome back to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer.  It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.

Welcome Bigskywild to Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. Or should I say "welcome back". Glad you joined and so glad you have resumed your enjoyment of the dulcimer. Looking forward to your participation in the discussions here. Best wishes as you continue your dulcimer journey.
