Hi Ray, 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.
@Jim-Fawcett @Richard-Streib @Ken-Longfield Thank you all for this warm welcome! I'm excited to browse all this fantastic content and learn more. I've read through Kevin Hume's "I just got a dulcimer" guide. I see that mine does not have the 6+ fret. If I'm understanding correctly, the standard diatonic fretboard is best for DAA tuning with a noter while the 6+ is more applicable for chords? Does anyone have a favorite book that they started learning with? Additionally, does anyone have more information on this wire piece that reminds me of the 5th string built-in banjo capo. Thanks for helping out a newbie!
