Although it was a chilly, rainy and blustery morning today, I did have some visitors.
Dan thanks for the article - I have always admired you Coast Guard folks above all the services. You go out when no one else does, at a huge cost to your own safety and lives sometimes.
Hey Dan, How ya been? Hope nothings out of the ordinary. Miss ya on chat. Hope you'll be back soon.
Happy Birthday, Dan. Enjoy your special day!
"The dulcimer sings a sweet song."
It's possible we chatted about muzzleloaders - I'm in to that also.
Hey Dan, Jean has a couple of the song books left from Wartz. Let either me or her know.
Thanks, Dan. Best Wishes to you!
I think NC headphones were originally developed for airplane personnel weren't they, and extended to other noisy environments later.
Thank you Dan! I'll definitely try to join in as I can!!
I don't really remember right now -- I have not played it in more than a year and the instrument is still packed away. On an instrument that short I would usually use something heavier, like 25-14-12-12.
The intonation isn't perfect, but I do enjoy the instrument's voice.
Hi Dan: for years I didn't know, though they appeared on eBay frequently. I'd though they may have been made by Paul Pyle, but then I cam across an identical dulcimer with a small booklet, itself with a picture of the same dulcimer, with the name "Jim Miller" in the title. This eBay ad says he was in Branson, MO:
Putting t-shirt in the mail today. Will try to send it in Express Box or Envelope. Let me know when you get it!
Hey Dan, thanks for the friend request. Seriously, thanks for the buy offer, but I was really just kidding about selling it. For what I have in it, I'd like to just hang on to it. Looks nice on a wall, and I can also use it as a student dulicmer in a crunch. But hey, anytime you want to ride over this way and play a little just let me know ahead of time.
How far do you live from Marrianna, Fl.? I've drove the 100 miles south to Marrianna three times on the 2nd Sat. to jam with a dulicmer club. Wonderful folks. Might be something you might be interested in.
Thanks for being a friend.
gracias amigo!.............have a great evening ,,,,,,thanks for your views!
I know! I went to send you a message and couldn't lol!
Here's the dulcimer that I thought you were bidding on:
Hey Dan, been trying to get back to you in the chat room.Everytime I type something, It must go into cyber space limbo. Trust me, I tried to get back to you.
Glad to be your Friend Daniel...Ed Henry?....don't know much about the wooden tuning pegs....don't do any 'maintenance' & they have always worked....
Thank you so much, and thanks for adding me to your friends! I really want to learn how to play Carol of the Bells. I don't even have my dulcimer yet, but I want to be prepared! Vivian
Daniel, thanks for the info on that podcast. Much appreciated. :)
