I learned to play in the 70s from a Jeanie Ritchie fan, Dean Eades, and I have always played the traditional mountain way; noter and drones.  Dean taught how the drones harken back to the heritage of the mountain people who were Scotch/Irish in that the mountain dulcimer drones mimic the bagpipe drones. Also, I am rather proud of the Indian Head carved scroll of my Bill Young dulcimer.

Just an fyi, there is a Warren A May 1980 dulcimer up on ebay. It is not specified but looking at it one can tell it has "Kentucky Scale" placed frets, which his early ones did. I have 2 early Bob Mize which are Kentucky scaled, and it still intrigues me. I have in the past searched the internet and no one seems to know just why or how it came about.  https://www.ebay.com/itm/MOUNTAIN-DULCIMER-4-STRING-TEARDROP-SIGNED-WARREN-A-MAY-3-18-80-BEREA-KY-860/222994265720?hash=item33eb7e7678:g:qyQAAOSwJslbDJSm:sc:USPSPriority!29696!US!-1

Hi Brenda, and welcome 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.
