ahhhhhhhhhh, when I read in DPN and here...........I see that any MD players are more near the Chicago area.  sigh, I'm 5 hours away in Nauvoo, Illinois.  So I began lately to getting old dulcimers and fixing them up and loaning them out and we meet almost weekly and just play for the joy of it all. aloha, irene

I really don't know how many are out there. I thought that a group might draw some out. but, I see your point. I will take your advice about posting an inquiry to see what happens!

Hi Matthew,

Do you happen to know if there are at least a half dozen Illinois members here who might be motivated to join an Illinois Group if it were created?  Sometimes I create a Group for a state and it never sees any action, and I wind up deleting it after a year or so.  I do try to avoid adding Groups that will be inactive.

Do you think there is a purpose for it, and some interest from others?  I suggest you create a new thread in the General Forum asking for members to post there if they are from Ill and are interested in having a Group for that.  Then if like 6 or 8 members pipe up about ti, I'd think there was a definite need for it.  Thanks!

Hello back, Matthew!  That is wonderful - congrats on ordering your new baritone!  Thank you for your kind words. I really appreciate that!  My amp is a Fishman Loudbox.  To my ear, Fishman pairs well with the dulcimer.  Gentler than many others.  Yet, it does have some toys onboard should you ever want to indulge your inner rocker.  giggle2

Hello Matthew Andrew,

A book that I can recommend specifically for fingerstyle playing would be Sue Carpenter's Patterns and Patchwork. Sue's website is www.suecarpenter.net.

Hi Matthew Andrew, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn and exchange ideas about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people. Wow! You really have been at the dulcimer a long time...ever since 1075! I think you might hold the record....113.gif
