Thanks you guys - so glad I found you all and look forward to the conversations and I am SURE I'm gonna need "help"!    

Little intro - my handle is MTWaggin (as in tail waggin) and of course I'm around Helena Montana.  This is my first EVER stringed instrument so quite a learning curve.  I've played wind instruments and plunk around on piano but wanted something portable and relaxing.  This seems to be the ticket.  I saw a blip on America's Heartland YEARSSSSS ago about dulcimers and it lodged in the back of my brain until now.  I got a beginner dulcimer from Bill Berg and am exploring the different styles of playing.   Sadly it is also causing me to NOT do chores!  

Love and music to you all!         Sherry

Hi MT, 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.
