Introduce Yourself!


General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

Hello from northern VT!  Even though I really am not much of a traveler at all, I am considering a road (or air) trip to the Smokey Mountains - there, I have said it and maybe that will help me to follow through with it. Any suggestions or advice from anyone out there in MD land?

Possum board search!


General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

Thanks to all for your valuable input......I ended up purchasing a Sweet Woods possum board and am happy with it - however, I don't use it as much as I thought I would and I'm not really sure why!

Thanks so much, Rob!  Now we just have to figure out which version is the one being requested by the "admirer" of our group.

Gaspe Reel - Canadian fiddle tune


General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

Thanks to all of you for your help. Marc Mathieu had crossed my mind but I don't know how to contact him. I see a lot of references to him on-line and, of course, u-tubes..........but I don't think he has a website.

Gaspe Reel - Canadian fiddle tune


General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

Hi folks, this tune was written as a theme song for Crocket's Victory Garden 
and our northern VT dulcimer group has been asked more than once if we can play
it. However, we cannot locate tab.......can anyone help us?
Thanks in advance!

Does anyone have experience using either one of these?  Picture attached. Made by Dave Lynch @ Sweet Woods.

Possum board search!

Susie, how comfortable is this type of possum board? Does it sit nicely on one's lap? And, do you notice quite a difference in volume?  Thanks!

Possum board search!


General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

Yes, I have already contacted Folkcraft and "no dice". Thanks for sharing Peter's method but I think that would be too heavy on my legs. I'm hoping for something quite lightweight and in the hourglass shape (like the one belonging to the woman that I mentioned initially).  Thanks again............

Possum board search!


General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

2 weeks ago at the "August Dulcimer Daze" in Dover, VT, I briefly met a woman who had a McSpadden Dulcimer and a beautiful possum board (separate/detached) that had an evergreen scene etched or painted on it.  She let me try it with my Folkcraft and it fit perfectly!  However, she couldn't remember where she had purchased it..........she said that she was going to try to find out before the festival ended but I never saw her again. :(    She told me that when she purchased the possum board she had a choice of several scenes. Does this ring a bell with anyone?  I'm not so much interested in the decoration but would like to find a possum board that fits my original made-in-CT Folkcraft dulcimers - one is regular and one is baritone. I don't have the time or know-how to make my own.  Picture perfect weather here today in the Northeast Kingdom of VT - now away from the computer and out to the deck to play some music!  Thanks to anyone who can help with my search.

Tennessee Waltz

Thanks for letting me know. I guess I'll just work on it myself and see if I can make improvements.

Tennessee Waltz


General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

Does anyone have a particularly nice arrangement for this beloved and seemingly timeless waltz? I have a simple version, but know that it could sound much, much better. Thanks!

"Lap holder" for music....?


General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

Has anyone ever discovered a music holder that slips under the MD and is held in that way? I would love to be able to have this quick option when I need to use tab........rather than always having a regular music stand in front of me even when I don't need tab. Can anyone else relate to this? Perhaps someone has discovered a creative DIY option? Thanks in advance for any input on this subject - and greetings from frigid VT!!
