Adventures with 'other' instruments...
Love the NA also, Only have three.
One is never enough, Two, no need to re-tune, well what could one more hurt.Then you find one so perfect in every way that you had to have it so number three is added to the family. Then from out of no where there was four.... where did it come from?
then there was eight. It had became like eating peanuts, you could not stop. you rescued them from yard sales junk shops from anywhere you could find them.you where on a mission to save the lost and abused, you would give them a loving home. For there is always room for one more.
you carefully restored them to their former glory bring back their beautiful voice. every so often people would give you one that had been in the attic for years, all covered in dust and string long gong. There always room for one more. You hunted them buy names of builders and by the year they where borne. Each being as prized as the last. There's always room for one more, I can stop at anytime you have been heard to say.
But then one more seem to a pier.
I have 2 playable Dulcimer
1 being built by our own Bobby.
2 native American flutes
3 electric guitars
1 12 string acoustic Alvarez Guitar
2 6 strings acoustic Guitars
3 jaw harps
at lest one harmonica
2 3-string cigar box guitars
1 mountain banjo
Not sure if I have missed anything or not.
Two awesome Videos. After hear the flute and the guitar together I know the flute would sound great along side mt 12-string guitar. I need to look into getting some recording stuff so I can record more than one track.

Phil, very nicely done, and many thanks. I hope you and yours have had a lovely Christmas this year!
Ron Thank you, I hope you've had a Merry Christmas. I think I have a good Doc he keeps check on me once a month and makes sure I have what I need. But I am just an old Jar headed Marin They never thought us how to give up or go backwards. so I just keep pushing forward. gues in short what I am saying if something don't work for me I find another way to do it.
Here's to 2013 best wish.
was not sure where to post this so here it is. You could call this playing with Arthritis my hands where not working to good. I still hope you can enjoy it. I was not sure if the first song was copyrighted or not so here is the link to youtube.
every time I play. I after playing a fewsongs I tend to just noodle around. same thing with my other instrument.
When I played in bands I had everything we played Memorized. Sometimes people would ask for something we didn't know all that well and out would come the sheet music. Now days I don't know if its form a head injury I had a few years ago, all the meds I now have to take or just age catching me to soon in life, I am only in my early 50's. But I seem to have trouble Memorize music. Maybe I just don't play enough. I have to keep the music close.
I can't say as I have heard of them. So I can't say one way or the other about them. But I have dealt with Folk Craft. with the experiences I have had them I will happy order from the again. The price is about the same plus you would be dealing with the people that built it. and very nice people they are. No I don't work for them but when a company goes out of it way to help me I go out of my way to tell people. any way here is their link if you want to check them out.
Love It.Now I want to learn it.
Like it would sound good on a dulcimer, maybe I had better go look up Reuben's Train and learn that first.
Was suffering around the internet, looking for some information on Mountain Banjos and Dulcimers. when I came across The Museum of Appalachia, then this link of theirs of a lot of old Instruments they have in there collection. it really worth taking the tme to look at. as for me if I can ever get close to Clinton, TN I am stopping in.
