I prefer the intimacy of Ozark streams. I enjoy the sound of the streams and watching the braiding currents. Assuming the picture came through...my granddaughter last week.

How is the COVID-19 coronavirus affecting you?


OFF TOPIC discussions

Our family rented a house in Southern Missourah for a trout fishing trip to Bennett Spring State Park. There were ZERO masks. The good news was fly rods create a natural 9 foot spacing even when wading. We took our own food so there was minimum contact. The kids and grandkids floated the Niangua on Friday and Saturday and only saw two other canoes. It was our first outing.

Last year I two hips replaced. I took my feather dulcimer both times. The staff got a kick out of the music coming from such a small instrument.

Strumelia. I just go wherever I can. It’s okay. At 72 I’m not techno savvy.

Finger picks that don't sound like finger picks!

You’re correct. They are picks; not fingerpicks.

Bravo! The history of the mountain dulcimer is important to savor. It’s early musicians were isolated, many were magnificent musicians but didn’t read or write. Thank you!

dulcinina:

In 1987 my husband had a dulcimer made for me by a local woodworker and industrial arts teacher who made dulcimers as a hobby..  I knew nothing about the dulcimer except I wanted to learn to play.  A woman from my church also had a dulcimer but neither of us has cases for our instruments.  She contacted Homer Ledford and he got us cases for our dulcimers.  We went to his home and spent a Sunday afternoon with him.  We couldn't play worth a darn but he was so gracious.  He explained things to us and showed us his workshop.  I had no idea how important he was in the dulcimer world.  I saw him many times playing at art festivals in Berea, KY.  Meeting him is one of my fondest memories.  Nina

Yes! We have a humidifier attached to our furnace and keep water boiling on the stove in our small home. The humidity stays at about 40%.

My dulcimers lay on tables, on my music stand, lean against the bookcase or on the bed.  How do you dust them and keep them?

Hearts Of The Dulcimer Podcast In Its 5th Year


General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

Nina Zanetti’s fingerpicking style is almost hypnotic. Like all of the Hearts of the Dulcimer podcast this is special.
This is Podcast number 45. Each is approximately 30 minutes. 45 divided by 2; approximately 22.5 hours. PLUS the 55 minute Hearts of the Dulcimer DVD makes for almost a 24 hour Hearts of the Dulcimer binge!

I feel an affinity for my dulcimers. I don’t play that well but I think we belong together.

First thing in the morning I put on a hymn or relaxing piano playlist on my IPhone.

Do you know of a relaxing CD or playlist on ITunes or Spotify that is strictly the mountain dulcimer?
