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!
Howdy and welcome to FOTMD!
Thanks for sharing your noter, nice. You are off to a good start, lots of great members here also looking to share.
Hey Kusani, welcome aboard. Glad ya found us.
Welcome to FOTMD Kusani. It's good to have you aboard.
"The dulcimer sings a sweet song."
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) :)
Hello and welcome to the site. This is a great place to listen to music and share ideas. I hope you enjoy.
Welcome, Kusani, to this little corner of dulcimer heaven. Hope you enjoy it here
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.
