I'm in my late 50s, played drums, piano, and a little guitar most of  my life.  My dad gave me his dulcimer and I'm trying to learn about it, which is how I found this site.

Hi Dewey, 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.
