welcome Lorna. Good to see you here on FOTMD. We look forward to your participation. Best wishes.
Guess we met at Kemble last weekend on Robin's dulcimer stall.
You know Robin's range - if you're considering secondhand, have a look at my catalogue (scroll down the list on this page a little): http://dulcimer.org.uk/for_sale.html .
Happy to talk through what might suit and where you might find other players to help.
All the best.
Hi Lorna, 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.
Hey Lorna, welcome aboard. Glad ya found us.
Welcome, Lorna, to this little corner of dulcimer heaven. Hope you enjoy it here.
Hi all , yes met them both at Didmarton and got blowed away by the chat and then the workshop. Seems I missed them at Shrewsbury too, but then I was in the uke orchestra there and had not even thought anything about Dulcimers until I had the revelation at Didmarton. I have always liked the sound and after the workshop I realised why ! Never thought I could contemplate playing a real instrument ...... so now my dielemma of where to start and mountain dulcima or a walkie wagemacalit stick. Saw one a at Warwick Ff but did not know what it was, wished I had paid more attention !Think overall at the moment what i would like to do is the noter style with some double strings for the melody. Still thinking about it. What a wonderful welcome thank you !
