I am a long time guitar player that recently decided to learn to play a dulcimer. I am still learning and very much a beginner, but recently the sound of traditional noter-drone playing has grabbed my attention. Chord-melody is also something I love and would like to learn. So much to learn...so little time.

Hi Kevin, was going through some old emails and found an email directing me to this new site (probably not that new anymore, I've been gone from fotmd awhile). So now you know my name on this site...

HI Ksr, 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.
