What’s your favourite playing style and why?


General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

I prefer using my fingers for strumming and picking but I don’t get as precise a sound without a pick.

General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

Call me blissfully confused. I find my DAA tuned dulcimers to be zen like and totally relaxing. I enjoy the chords and fingerpicking on my DAD dulcimers. All of those dulcimers have 4 extra frets and I have two cardboard chromatic dulcimers. My favorite dulcimer is the one in my lap.

Thank you. I’m very fond of my backpacker dulcimers by Cedar Creek Dulcimers. They are tuned. GDg and GDDd.
I guess I won’t take them to the club meeting.

Thank you!
I printed your tab scales and ordered Mike Casey’s book.
I can’t open your video. I’m subscribed to your YouTube videos.
I’ll keep moving along trying to get better.
Thanks for the help!
