Thanks for the welcome!
Thank you! :)
Thank you very much, I am very glad to be here and look forward to getting to know everyone.
Thanks for the welcome.
I frantically downloaded a few of my favorite songs before “Everything Dulcimer” shut down their site.
Thank you for the address of the new dulcimer tabs website! This will help when I start exploring new songs. 😊
Thank you so much for posting this event and letting me know of this gathering here in my hometown. 😄
Thanks so much for the welcome
Thanks Richard, I"m sure I'll get a lot from this site.
Thank you! Looking forward to listening and learning!
Thanks for your advice, Richard! I just joined the dulcimer making group!
Thank you, Richard! Enjoying the dulcimer and this site very much.
Richard, Thanks for the opening welcome note. I agree with everything you mentioned and hope to truly "fall-in-love" with a dolcimer soon; and then, of course figure out which one to purchase. So far, I love listening to the music, however when I attend the Maryland Folk Musicians Festival on June 1, I hope to actually have a personal experience.
Richard thanks for the welcome, as well as the luthier recommendation! I was so pleasantly surprised to see someone right here in Bedford making such beautiful instruments. I think I'll send that page info to my fiance as a wishlist for when I'm beyond beginner.
Thanks! Joined the beginner group & working on mynplaying everyday. Joined the Southern Appalachian Dulcimer Association so I have a local group. I appreciate your welcome!
Thanks, glad to be here
Thanks a lot AC
Thank you for the welcome. I'm just getting started, coming from a guitar playing background. I seem to be on a quest for simplicity since I have gone from 6- and 12-string guitar, to ukulele, to tenor guitar, to dulcimer! I recently bought an old 4-string equidistant cedar dulcimer shaped like a tulip or a lyre which I plan to post pictures of. I bought a used dulcimer from a well known luthier and finally returned it because the middle string always fretted sharp. I just found a McSpadden M12-W from 1991 locally for $250, and I am thoroughly pleased with it. A lady now in her late 70's bought it at their store in Arkansas with the chipboard case, and it ended up sitting in her closet for 27 years. I measured the strings with a micrometer, and they appear to be the original strings, since the owners manual says the factory strings were 12-12-12-23. It is absolutely pristine. I moved a couple of the end pegs to allow installing a strap attachment. Again thanks for the nice welcome!
Thanks for making me feel welcome!
