I just found out yesterday you are from Sparta. While I have a Sparta address and live in the country about halfway between Cookeville and Sparta. I do most all my shopping/etc. in Cookeville. I taught at TTU from 1975 until 2002 when I retired.
Yes, Jan Fritz heads up the Cookeville Dulcimer Club of which there are approx. 12 or so members. And they do meet at 2:00 on Tuesdays most weeks. They would love to have you join them, even if you can't get to all the meetings. Looking at some of your info I think your playing skills are at a point you could contribute a lot to the group.
Thanks for getting touch. I never played a stringed instrument in my life until a year ago; much less built one. So, it's a lot of fun learning to strum a big and build as well.
I got a Hohner special 20 in C
It came with some free on line lessons for 30 days so I'm going to investigate it later
Do you know of any good learning resources for Harmonica?
sorry here it is

Here is a link to me playing the harmonica i don't know if it will open for you, but I can't post on the members videos because it is a copyrighted song (I'll Fly Away).
Welcome, Noah, to this little corner of dulcimer heaven. Hope you enjoy it here.
Welcome to FOTMD Noah. It's good to have you aboard.
"The dulcimer sings a sweet song."
Howdy and welcome to FOTMD!
Hi Noah, 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.
Hey Noah, welcome aboard. Glad ya found us.
