Sweet Little Red Head


OFF TOPIC discussions

My hive made it through, but this weekend will be a challenge.  Queen is laying heavy and we have lows forecast for upper teens.  I hope they have enough bees to cover the brood.

Adventures with 'other' instruments...

 Interesting.  Heard one at our Mt. Dulcimer group about 3 months ago and have been debating picking one up.

Tell us about your VERY FIRST dulcimer


General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

A Jenny Wiley dulcimer we got for the family to learn.  I played trumpet and a little piano years ago and my wife played guitar.  We haven't taught the kids either but we way this at a festival and figured it would work well in the homeschooling curriculum.  My son is playing it now.

odd frets


General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

That was really interesting.  I'm too old to have much hope of reaching that level but maybe my kids could approach it with a lot of practice. 

In this day and age when people are easily offended knockers, nono .  Stick would be about as bland and non-offensive as you could get and somebody would still probably be offended.

Groups I am a member of- where to see


Site QUESTIONS ? How do I...?

I had joined a couple of groups but none of them are showing up in my profile now.  Did I miss doing something I needed to do?

Positive game-changers in your progress


General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

To new to call it a game changer, but I took my son to the Perry County Dulcimer Club and he got to hear good players.  All were very encouraging to him and I think it really helped him see that people can make good music with one of these unlike what I make while trying to help him.

Jeffrey Lambert Jenny Wiley Dulcimer


Instruments- discuss specific features, luthiers, instrument problems & questions

I have a chance to get a beginer Jenny Wiley Dulcimer by Jeffrey Lambert and wondered what anyone thought of his instruments.  Same price as one of David Lynch's Sweet Woods, but it is local (no shipping) and available today.

 

Went ahead and got it.  Walnut peghead, poplar fretboard, birch veneer soundboard and back and red oak sides.  Wife, son and daughter are all picking out a tune on it so I think it was a good investment.
