Chuck, that is a nice looking dulcimer. I don't normally name my dulcimers, but I think she definitely needs a name! Regarding your learning to play, there is a quote from an old blues player that I saw on a cigar box guitar site. I am paraphrasing........"so I got me a box, a stick of wood and some string and I strung it up and played me a tune"........or something like that.Grin.gif

Interesting. Veeerrrryyy long tuning head with a nice shape. Veeerrrryyy narrow waist, but that will make it easy to pick up in the center. Very long discontinuous fretboard. Looks like nice workmanship.

Now get busy playing!

Never let a dulcimer club tell you what you should or must or hafta to do! If they start that, find another club.

Thankyou and I will be bearing down on the lessons. Had a bad week at the dulcimer club I go to, in fact it was so bad that they wondered if I should keep "learning how to play the dulcimer on my bucket list" Just kidding they have been very helpful, I will keep pluggin.

I found this dulcimer on craigs list and went to see it the next day. It was built in 1989 North Country Dulcimers Robert and Yvonne Hutchinson and is beautiful, never thought I would have one like this. A part of the nut broke off and he put a nail in to hold the melody strings apart is the only falt and I am going to leave it alone for now. I tell you it sure has a voice.

Tell ya what. That sucker is SMOOTH! I love those flowing lines and the obvious work that has gone into finishing it out. The peg head is pretty unique. I haven't seen one just like it, but I like it. That thang is purty!!!
