I am a long time guitar player that recently decided to learn to play a dulcimer. After dabbling in chord-melody playing for a bit I soon discovered the beauty of noter-drone playing. Now I can't seem to get enough. I just love those drones and that old time Appalachian music.

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.
