Hello again! I just now saw your message. If I come across anyone seeking an instrument such as that I will be glad to steer them your way.
Hello Dewey...good to meet a fellow dulcimer player. I have been on here for awhile..just have not checked it lately...taking care of family.
Dewey, accepted your request, thank you. If you can post your tune privately to me well and good, if not post to A new tune to learn and we will listen, if there is a problem with the tune which I don't envisage it can be removed. Best wishes Val.

Hi Dewey! Thank you for the friend request! Happy to be your friend!
Thank You Mr.Parker
Thanks Dewey, that picture was taken up in Alaska. Nothing like that down here in Bayou country.
Thanks for the welcome, Dewey! I am new to dulcimers, but I'm also ignorant on a wide variety of topics .
Thanks Dewey! It's great to have you here!
I just call 'em the way i see 'em Dewey..and It's My Way is a delight. One of the coolest things is those awesome little transition chords you throw in just before you go into another part. I LOVED that! Makes the song really fancy and special. You are vastly more comfortable on the dulcimer than i am..it's all quite new to me and i still don't practice much. Lots to learn for sure. I never really cared much for the instrument as my exposure to them was minimal and i could never hear them that well...even worse these days as i have a severe hearing deficit. Then i put a condenser mic in front of mine and listened thru headphones and it opened up a whole new world for me. I love that mountaian sound. I don't have a pickup or use an amp...i just mic it and run that into my standalone recorder..a Boss BR1200CD. It has great onboard preamps that boost the signal nicely. I use no DAW software like most folks do (Pro Tools, Sonar, Cubase, and other recording programs) I assume you record with just the mic on the video camera? i couldn't help but think how a great song/performance like It's My Way could sound with a bit of studio magic. Any questions you have regarding that sort of thing feel free to ask...i'd be happy to share what i know even tho i have only been into digital home recording now for 8 years and it's just a hobby. Fun one tho!
Hey Dewey! I have pics of Blossom posted in my profile pics. I just LOVE making music with her. Never get tired of hearing those strings sing! lol
Hi Dewey..Really enjoyed "It's My Way". What a beautiful arrangement..sweet melody, and incredibly good playing. You "hear" alot more than the vast majority of dulcimer players. That song is full of amazing little touches. Did you do the backer on the keyboard yourself as well?
Thanks for the comments on my studio. The playing you hear on my page is indeed me...and yes, i play those few instruments pictured but my main instruments are guitars. My recording studio in my cabin loft has allowed me to finally record all the songs i've written in my life, which i have posted at my website. I write in many genres, as you will see if you have a chance to stop by for a listen. I strive for quality recordings but the real gold is and always will be in the song itself.
Pinecats Just another singer/songwriter. I play all my own instruments (except drums) and record on a Boss BR1200CD standalone... @SoundClick

Let me know whenever you post new work Dewey...i really like your music.
Appreciate the friend request Dewey...you are one fine player and that instrument is just beautiful. Also like the quality of the recording. Looking forward to checkin' out more of your work!
Yes - I can feel the warmth! What a lovely bunch of people. I wonder if it is because playing the dulcimer is sort of passive (unlike some forms of guitar music for example which can sound aggressive). I would guess that the very name dulcimer might come from the latin 'dulce' which,if I can cast my mind back to the beginning of time when I was at school, meant sweetly. There must also be a type of personality drawn towards dulcimer playing; nice, considerate, caring and courtly folk. What do you think?
Hi Dewey! Yes, goats are excellent people! lolI hope to learn to play a lot of tunes once my dulcimer is finished. Morgan Wright (here on the forum) is making me a lefthanded, hourglass dulcimer. Can't wait to get it and find others to do some pickin' and strumin' with. =D
hi Dewey...Just droppin by to say i enjoyed your Summer Rain song. perfect match for title and arrangement! Nice tones and fine playing...it's got good emotion. I also liked the accompaniment...filled out the tune nicely. Good one!
Hi Dewey welcome to FOTMD.
Howdy and welcome to the FOTMD team!
