Hi GSK, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.
Hey GSK, welcome aboard. Glad ya found us.
Welcome GSK to Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. Glad you joined and glad to hear of your interest in the mountain dulcimer. Finding that first dulcimer for a new player is always exciting if not a bit scary. There have been some older discussions here about how to choose a first dulcimer. You may start a new discussion as well. Folks here are very helpful.
Best wishes on finding that first dulcimer and on your dulcimer journey.
Welcome to FOTMD GSK. It is good to have you aboard.
