General mountain dulcimer or music discussions
thanks terry i appreciate your words.
i appreciate all you who responded... thanks
after spending 25 years doing Renaissance Faires and finally giving it up this year, i bought a mountain dulcimer.... cause i always liked the sound and the ease of playing or the complexity of playing.
It may all be due to the change of life style... So many friends on the faire circuit both performers and patrons. to now really nothing... no longer anything to inspire and require practicing. I guess also i am tired of "trad"music.
i have been wondering back and listening to music from my youth.... i have been finding inspiration in "Music from Big Pink" and "the Basement Tapes" diddling with some of the tunes and thinking they may sound quite cool on MD.
So right now i am picking it up several times a week almost daily sometimes for hours sometimes just to see if a song i like is doable. Still not sure where i am going ... baby steps. i miss performing.
