Thank you so much. I figure it this way if I can teach myself how to play the accordion I can also learn how to play the Mountain Dulcimer too.Key is not to give up and practice,practice,practice.

Hi Richard -- I appreciate the warm welcome from you and others in this community.  I hope to get a beginning dulcimer soon.  I can't really afford a custom-made instrument, so I'm researching online for some that are commercially produced.  I wish I could preview the sound of the one I do buy before I make the purchase, but at least with Musician's Friend, or even Amazon, I can return it if I don't like it.
