Fingerpicking

A place to discuss fingerpicking styles of dulcimer playing.

Please start a new discussion for each specific topic you'd like to talk about, using several descriptive words in the thread subject/title to make discussions easy to browse. Seeking help in any aspect of using fingerpicking or fingerstyle to play music on the mountain dulcimer is of course encouraged. 

Please note that the 'Comment Wall' works well for casual or short chatting and comments, but to explore a subject in depth with others, it's best to create a new thread/discussion.
