 Hey I didn't know you lived in sparta! I was wondering, have you tried to see if the dulcimer club in cookeville is still active? There's a number on everything dulcimer, but because they meet (according to the website)when I'm busy, I haven't really bothered to call. Or is there a group in sparta that meets?

Hi Kusani, in your description you mention a John Maddux dulcimer. Is this the one you use as your avatar? The avatar looks like a Maxwell!

Thank all of you for the welcome.  I am in the process of learning to strum, note, and care for my dulcimer.  The wooden pegs need some adjustments and chalking, and it appears my nut will have to be moved a bit to keep the instrument in tune as I move up the scale.  The instrument was made in 1976 and bought that year by my mother who never played it. I am also learning, again, how to read music.  My last experience, other than church, was playing a trombone in high school (no comparison) :)

Hi Kusani, 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.
