I grew up in Indiana where I first saw a dulcimer. I moved to California decades ago and I miss the bluegrass culture where people play music everywhere - even in the middle of a harvested cornfield. In my life, I tried to learn flute, piano, guitar and banjo, but always got discouraged very quickly. It was just too hard - with very little result. It wasn't until recently that I got a dulcimer from a neighbor, and I felt I could finally learn to play an instrument. Without a book or lesson, the first day I brought it home, I was able to play one of my favorite southern ballads.
