Carol, most professional musicians change strings at least every three months or sometimes more often. On the instruments I play regularly, I try to change strings as soon as they begin to feel hard or when too much grit has accumulated on them. If you wipe off your strings after you play, they will last a bit longer. But new strings are softer on the fingers, they sound better, and they look better. Plus, they're not expensive! If you bought a used dulcimer and haven't changed strings yet, I would recommend you do so. Your hands and your ears will thank you.

Nice job, Peter! That song is just made for the dulcimer, and you do it right! You really capture the energy of a blacksmith!

This is great. I can just picture those happy Finnish blacksmiths busy pounding swords into plow shears. Good of you to share.
