Great to be friends with you also! My niece just graduated from St Mary's a year and a half ago! She went thru the nursing program and is now a nurse at Goshen Hospital.

My parents bought the house that my mom still lives in before I was born. My dad passed away in 1991. He was my music buddy and I miss him terribly. I talk about him in my profile.

So do you still have a house in Elkhart? Where at? Just wondering.

Oh - so you miss Indiana huh? It's Halloween....and it snowed here this afternoonFrown.gif

Ok, I guess that's all for tonight.

Keep strumming and smiling!Smile.gif

Hi Rick,

damaging the fretboard 'north 0f the strum hollow' means towards the head, right?

It'll take you years to do any damage to that fretboard as it is made of ebony, one of the hardest Woods.

I do Play noter and drone style as well, and I use a fairly nasty plastic pick, but damage to the fretboard overlay? NAY!

If you have a fretboard made of softer wood like walnut or cherry I can imagine some damage after some time but ebony will resist a very long time.

Good morning (our time), Rick,

It's a pleasure to be your friend. And thanks for the flattering about my teardrop dulcimer, I loved it.

I passed through Memphis a few times on I-40 on my way from Atlanta to Mountain View but I never ever stopped.

A welcome to you Rick, from the UK/Euopean group within FOTMD, glad to have you with us! Some of us spent a pleasant afternoon making music in Bath yesterday, (you may have heard of it, lol), it was good to get away from the many police crawling all over my pocket handkerchief garden doing a 'fingertip search'

I hope you get the chance to visit back here to SW VA often. We like it here very much. We enjoy the climate, people and scenery very much. We were looking at the Marion area too but ended up in Galax. I hope Memphis hasmany attributes worth enjoying. Thanks for the warm welcome to FOMTD.

Hi Rick,

That's great you and your daughter listened to the tunes I have posted! I have a new dulcimer just clearing UK customs today - it is a very authentic copy of an Ed Thomas dulcimerin poplar wood - 3 string, wood tuning pegs and staple frets. So there will be some more tunes going up as soon as she arrives Grin.gif

Drop me a line if you every head over to Wales.

Hello Rick. Just be idily trolling through stuff, and came across a post containing a comment from you indicating that you might build a TMB ? If you hav'ent, and still 'might ' I am more than happy to share details of the one I built. Relatively easy build, and very satisfying to play. Would sound great in one of thos log cabins............!
