Hello Richard, 

Thank You for saying Welcome to me. My name is Torsten and I live in Germany; and I am an absolut beginner with the mountain dulcimer. More than 10 years ago I started learning violin and quinton playing - but may be You can imagine that it is no easy way for someone in the 50th without no intrument knowledge. But I was relativly satisfied with the instrument an me.... ;-) , 

After I saw Ken Bloom playing the bowed dulcimer on youtube I was completely enthusiastic what he did with this intrument ... and I startded playing such a instrument built by a German instrument-maker. 

For more than 40 years I am familiar with traditional music from different countries in Europe so Sweden, Norway, Spain, France....but also from the States. I am very interested in historical things in the US and more and more with history, poeple, traditions and music from Appalachia. The film "Soundcatcher" war very interesting and inspirating.

My McSpadden dulcimer I bougth 1 year ago, but because of my time-consuming job was no much time to start....or I did not found time to do so.

But now in beginning of my 60th will I start, and I did it by selflearning with youtube lessons and literatur for beginners. So I hope to get more tips and advice here in the forum and to have fun in learning to play and to come in contact with people on the same way.

I wish a peasent week.

Greetings from Germany , Torsten

Thanks so much. My goal is to learn to play her, more than TTLS and boil that cabbage down, to surprise my wife. I have zero music ability so it's going to be a challenge. I think I landed in the right spot. Thanks again for rolling out the welcome mat. Shalom.

Richard,  I saw an old comment where you were interesteed in a Presnell.  I have one that I am planning to sell, as I clear out my inventory in preparation for my eventual promotion.

It is a Cherry 6-string dulcimer that I bought for my collection 2 or 3  years ago.  I bought it with a partner, then later I bought him out.

I have not played it, as I am really not a player.

If you are interested, let me know, and I'll send info and photos.

Thanks,

Bill Howard

Thanks Richard !

On starting a discussion, are you sending me the welcome via my profile ? I did start a new topic thread about a Warren May dulcimer. This site is kind of confusing/different than the guitar forum I frequent.
