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.

Hi Jim, thanks for the welcome. I'm from Weymouth, Dorset UK, bass player who fell in love with the sound of the mountain dulcimer. I've got a John Maxwell 1974 5- string and a contemporary 3 - string (4 with the doubled melody string) by Musickkon, an Irish company. 

No doubt I'll be back with a thousand questions. 

Best wishes, 

Chris Lonergan

Thanks!!!   (Pattyfromor & Oldmdpicker)   
Piano is my primary instrument, but I've played around with guitar, slide guitar, and mandolin.     The dulcimer caught my ear a couple years back...just now finding time to spend some time with it.     Bought a banjammer from Clemmer and of the "California dulcimers".     Trying out some of the Bing Futch stuff and Jessica Comeau and Larry Conger.   

...(to Oldmdpicker....I am 66, so I understand starting a new instrument later in life :-)
