Hi Mackelroy, 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.

Welcome to FOTMD, Mackelroy. This is the place to learn about the mountain dulcimer. If you don't find what you are looking for, just ask. If we don't know the answer, we'll make something up. Just kidding. There are many knowledgeable folks here who can speak about playing, building, and history. I look forward to your participation here.

Ken
