Hi friends plodding along with my new McSpadden dulcimer I got through a Auctioneer in America. As a beginner a better instrument is a bonus it makes you really focus at being a good player anyway that's what I believe. I have a beginner's Applecreek too but the sound is different. I have learned a few songs now with Joyce Ochs beginners book it's really good and now am onto chords

Hi Strumelia thankyou for the welcome. I looked at your favourite song Shady Grove very lovely folk song sung by various people,also on the same ytube page was a link on how to make mountain dulcimers but he didnt know how to play it after he made it. I would love making my own the wood bending and frets would be the hardest to do. Lovely to be part of our dulcimer community I am enjoying it a lot.
