Hi Dorothy- can you please change your Account settings email address to one that is functional?  You'll need to do that in order to remain a member on FOTMD. If you need my help with it let me know please. Thanks!

Thanks so much Dorothy.  Very good information, I just went to a Sacred Harp practice session last night and that is what they were doing!

Hi Dorothy, and welcome to our wonderful site. 

I am assuming you have a love of playing Noter/Drone style.

I am a beginner N/D player and love the sounding deep drones that vibrate forever.

I am a self taught player who lives in MT where there are no known players, so my start in buying instruments and learning how to play came mostly from the wonderful folks from this site.

I appreciate your instruction videos, particularly about tuning. I remember how frustrated I would get with learning how to tune. I have sense learned  that like you in the tuning video many times the strings sound best by ear.

It is a well done lesson and really appreciate your videos and know you will help others who want to learn about the sweet sounds of the mountain dulcimer....Lexie

Hi Dronestyles, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer.  It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn and exchange ideas about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.
