You went to college in my father's family's neck of the woods--Carbondale and Mulphysboro area! I fully intend to head over that way some day and do some genealogical research!
H1Michael! My favorite dulcimer for fingerpicking is Aeolus.
I actually have 2 Blue Lions. My first was a walnut w/ cedar top. The second is rosewood w/ cedar top. The walnut has a nice mellow tone, but I prefer the rosewood. It has a very full, rich tone. You can hear the rosewood on the video I posted.
Welcome to you Michael!
Welcome, Michael, to this little corner of dulcimer heaven. Hope you enjoy it here.
I just noticed where you are from. We spent the night in Salem on 10/11 at the old Holiday Inn (I think it's called Guest House now...the one with the Denny's attached). We were headed home after doing a workshop in Indiana at Folkcraft, Small world!
Howdy and welcome to FOTMD!
Welcome to FOTMD Michael. It's good to have you aboard.
"The dulcimer sings a sweet song."
Hey Michael, welcome aboard. Glad ya found us.
Hi Michael, 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.
