Just was wondering what everyone is working on right now. I thought it would be interesting to see the range of music that is covered. It would also be helpful for beginners (like me) to see what is available and possible.

I have been playing since October 2014 and have to teach myself. I also have some physical limitations due to chronic health problems. I really want other beginners to understand that with practice and patience they can really enjoy their dulcimers.

I have mastered a number of Celtic songs and I am now trying something Classical.

I am working on"Chaconne" from "The Fairy Queen"byHenry Purcell(1659-1695). It was adapted by Larry Conger and is in his book "The Classical Dulcimer". It comes with a CD that is very helpful.

Please share what you are doing.
