Welcome to my neck of the woods


I built my first dulcimer from a kit, from Cripple Creek Dulcimer in Manitou Springs, CO in late 2007 (the one on the far left). I have been playing ever since the build was done in early 2008. Self taught as it were. Love to sit on the porch swing when it's warm enough and strum away.

Thanks, Jim! I am looking forward to learning to play my new baby. I am awaiting on some new strings which I'll get tomorrow, and then start figuring things out.

Jim- Thanks for the welcome to this amazing group. I am thankful for all the work you folks have put into developing this global community.

Here I sit looking out the windows at my Mountains here in Alaska, while across the planet you and others dulcimer musicians are spreading the magic of your Mountain Dulcimers.

Life is good.

My goal is to find a Dulcimer music instructor here in my community. So far Not so good. I take Mandolin lessons at a local music school about 45 minutes away from my home, but they do not offer Mt. Dulcimer classes......any leads you can offer would be appreciated.

Sincerely, Marjorie Bellringer

Greetings from Southend-on-sea in the Uk

Having only just discovered messages from FOTMD in my spam, this is the first time I have logged in so apologies for not replying sooner to your welcome message which is appreciated.  

I'm waiting for my instrument (a Sweetwoods Student) to arrive so, right now, my MD activities are restricted to watching You Tube videos and reading up.

Looking forward to getting involved here.

Hi there JIm.  Thanks for the welcome aboard way back in July.  I just noticed today that folks wrote - guess I needed to scroll down to see messages.  I'm happy to have found the group and it's been very helpful and fun to read discussions.  I've learned loads! Thanks for being such warm and friendly folks!

Hi Jim,

My teeny hands are proving to be difficult to play with so far, but I do love it.

Jim, Have you stayed at that Super 8? Trying to find a decent hotel for the event. Clean, smoke free, no bedbugs, and decent parking a must. 😀
