Ken that's a great idea. Will try that out this weekend!!
Homemade Strummer Tab/Music Holder ?
Skip -- a possum board won't work with a strummer (aka stick dulcimer).
Mr Phil -- You could try memorizing a number of tunes... Or, if your tab is on 3x5 cards, you could rig a mount on the strummer's neck, like a backwards capo sorta, to hold a standard music instrument lyre. The elastic would go under the strings and the bar in back would hold the lyre.
The problem is this: my new strummer dulcimer is too small to mount a lyre on it to hold my tab sheets. It is made with the body of a ukulele. THERE IS NO ROOM! I'm thinking I'll have to use a portable stand (that is height adjustable) now if I play it outside home in a group. I despise lugging MORE STUFF around. Has anyone seen, found, got, or have a picture of a neato-solution to this issue?
