Sean, I have never used one except to contribute. A friend of mine is using Go-Fund-Me to raise money for his CD. Here is a link to his campaign:  https://www.gofundme.com/normwilliams

He seems to be doing well with it. I am not sharing this to ask for contributions, only to help you to see how someone else is doing what you want to do.

I am starting to learn fingerpicking on the dulcimer. Can anyone tell me why when I wear picks, each time I go to pick the same strings the second time, I get a buzz.  I am also playing without picks and do not get a buzz.  Are my strings too loose as I am tuned to CGC?

Also are there different strings I should be using every time I retune?  I was told someone has a chart of the different strings for each tuning.   Hope some one can answer my questions and thank you so much for the trouble.  I love the dulcimer so much that I want to get the best sound possible from it.

The band I play in, The Mound City Slickers, are kicking around tunes to record for a new CD that we'd hope to release next Spring. One of the ideas we've talked about is crowd sourcing the funding for the CD. Of course, being the musical promotion "geniuses" we are (completely not), we have no experience with this. Does anyone on these boards have experience and an inclination to give us some pointers? Best sites to use? Do you absolutely need a video? Etc.
