Hello Dusty, thank you for your comment. Yes, capo at the 1st fret is one option. But more and more, I tune my DAD dulcimer to DAC when playing pieces in minor.

I have posted some photos of the Taisho Koto in a new gallery yesterday. You can find it here:

I bought that instrument via ebay from Japan. Even it was labelled as "used" it is in almost mint condition when it arrived here! :)

That's really cool, Peter.  Could you post a picture of the "other" side of the instrument, the one facing you?


I learned that tune on the dulcimer from Neal Hellman.  He plays it with a capo at the first fret in Em.
