keep a picking and a grinning welcome to the new website Katie.
Hi Katie, and welcome to a great place.
Goodness, in your avitar picture you look just like a young Jean Richie...
This comment isn't ment to confuse things ( I am already a confused person), as there is a lot of discussion on dulcimer tunings. Write all the notes of the musical scale on pieces of paper, put them in a hat, and draw three. Tune you dulcimer to that and see what you get.... may start a new trend.
Welcome, Katie! I see you're from Kingston, NY. Have you been to the dulcimerSymposium north of you at Blue Mountain? I've been looking into that one for a future trip. Most of the time I go to festivals and workshops in KY, TN, NC and IN. I'm hoping to venture a bit further from home in the coming years! Enjoy exploring this site--great folks here, who will help with anything!
Welcome, Katie, to this little corner of dulcimer heaven. That's a great instrument you have, though I've never actually played one. I'm sure you'll find some events near you. Hope you enjoy it here.
Howdy and welcome to FOTMD!
Welcome to FOTMD Katie. My wife and I spent several nights in Kingston back in September. We had a good time touring the Hudson River valley. We even walked across the Hudson on the bridge.

Hey Katie, welcome aboard. Glad ya found us.
Hi Katie, 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. Wow! What an addition...a Jean Ritchie dulcimer!
