I’ve just finished reading this book. It’s really a wonderful read. Moving at the end, tears welling up. Some of the people mentioned in this book I have either met, or have contact with through social media. I believe it should be read by all those either currently playing a dulcimer, or those simply interested in the instrument. It has changed my playing perspective. Now I’m leaning more towards learning the older tunes. I’ve also started listening to WSM on the radio. And thru Apple Music I’ve been listening to many of the recordings mentioned in this book. Thank you for writing this excellent book.
I was at dulcimer week held at Appalachian State in 1999. If I remember, I thought I heard him there. Not 💯 % sure.
I’ve just begun to read this. The history in the beginning is wonderfully written. Anxious to get deeper into the book.
How are they tuned, and any suggestions on a beginner book for that?
Help please. I play with three strings, leaving the outermost double melody string off. I just put new strings on it. When I start tuning the inside melody string, and once I reach the note C just below D, I get a twang/buzz sound from there right on up to the correct D note. Sounds so sour. When I move the same string to the outside notches the sound isn’t there, and rings true. Any ideas?
Teardrop mountain dulcimer, Robert Worth, 08/89, number 31. See pics for details. Back has two spots that look separated, but tight. Sound great. My best guess is spruce top, or maybe butternut? Sides and fretboard appear to be rosewood. My best guesses. Has six tuners but I use three strings. Bridge has a chip that doesn't bother me since I use just three strings. Tuners hold well. Some wear near Eagles. 35"x7/12". VSL 25 3/4".
