Thank you. I am waiting for my first Dulcimer from McSpadden. It should be here in a few weeks. I plan to play in DAA in the old noter style. I found Strumelia and her YouTube and Blog site. I am slowly reading and watching her materials. I am a bass player who finally aged out of loud rock bands and late nights. It's a new adventure.

The post would go in the Technology/Software/Amplifying group.

Go to that group. If you are not a member, click join at the top to become a member of the group.

There is an attach file button at the bottom of discussion to which you would reply but I do not recall seeing a place to attach a file to a new discussion you create. Contact site owner Strumelia with your question. She is always prompt to respond.

Sorry I cannot help further. Unless you create the post, then open it yourself as if to respond and add the attachment that way.
