Thanks Gayle. I have a few videos at YouTube that go into the Travis picking thing in greater detail. Of course you have to stand Travis picking on it's head to make it work on a dulcimer, but it is a pinch style picking that I developed in conscious imitation of Travis picking.


"Handsome Molly" has instructions for 4-beat songs and "Four Marys" has instructions for 3-beat songs.

Any of the others that show a dulcimer in the thumbnail show this Travis-like picking.

Thanks again for commenting.

Thanks Randy. I've always been a one-trick pony on the guitar, and that trick was Travis picking, so when I took up dulcimer after my left hand went south, it seemed like a natural thing to try to adapt to dulcimer.
