General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

I would be willing to guess that that is if not pretty closed to being 5x bigger than a normal normal dulcimer. It is the biggest Dulcimer I know of out there.

How Many


General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

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.

Hi Garland,

I play the NA flute myself. Never had anyone to jam with that had to be awesome. I don't even have a flute circle near me. so it's just me and all my instruments.

Do you memorize your music?


General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

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.
