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 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.
