"I decided to start with Sandy River Belle because I like it, know it on banjo, and it worked well figuring it out on my dulcimer. So fun!!"

Hi Carolyn, 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.

Welcome CarolynF to Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. Glad you joined. This is a great resource for learning about the dulcimer, its history, how to play. Jump right in and join the discussions and ask questions. We are here to help you. Best wishes on your dulcimer journey.

I’m starting with learning how to navigate the site! My first post will probably be asking for advice on buying one.

Back in 07 went to Colorado Springs to visit my brother in law. He took us to Manitou Springs where I bought a dulcimer kit. Bud and Donna Fords dulcimer shop. Too bad it's long gone now, but they had a lot of nice dulcimers there. Hope you find one to your liking.
