Hi Kate, 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.
Question: totally new to dulcimer (played simple guitar decades ago). Does anyone have an idea of how to get a dulcimer fretboard to practice on when I cannot play the instrument? I'm thinking of diy by buying oversized cardstock or something like it and copying the length and fret intervals matching my TK O'brien dulc. Ideally, i would love to find a fret board (no matter the quality bec it is totally for silent practice when in libraries or coffee places) that would equal my dimensions. if I did it on construction paper, I think I would try to match fret positions and mark the paper with THIN tape (like they used to use for borders in graphic design). Any ideas?
Thank you for the welcome because it made me feel a part of a new community which I have high hopes for!
