Summertown Bluegrass Reunion: 1st Dulcimer Lesson
musician/member name: Music
This girl and her little brother had never seen a mountain dulcimer and wanted to play my McSpadden dulcimer. It was tuned to DAD and as I borrowed a friend's Jon Harris dulcimer that was tuned in DAA I played on the base string while the kids played on the melody string. One would strum while the other fretted, then they'd switch sides. I should have retuned both the instruments the same but I was lazy and thought the kids would quickly loose interest, but they stuck with it about a half an hour.
