John, just yesterday I told Mark that we could use "Don't Shoot!" as a name for our guitar/dulcimer duo. More appropriately, I should've said, "Please, Don't Shoot!" Grin.gif

In a moment of randomness I was thinking of some of the creative names invented by rock bands in the 60's and 70's and thought that it might be fun to create similar names for dulcimer groups that we'll probably never see. I'll start with a few and encourage y'all to add to the list if you feel compelled. I feel that a giggle or two never hurt anyone in this ol' world. Grin.gif
