Thank you all for the warm welcome. Sorry I didn't post any sooner but had to much going on. Can play my first tree songs. So its going very nice. Al do I need to practice more. 

I am trying to figure out about this forum. How it works and so on. That was one of the reasons why i post so late. Trying to figure out how it all works. 

So For now i am playing a bit and reading a bit.

Thank you all for the warm welcome. I hope i can play a little tune soon. But stil working out where the notes are and what the cords are. I dont use a noter yet becouse i want learn to play simgle notes also. But i didn't try a nkter yet. Maybe i like it a lot. What a wonderfull instrument, the dulcimer grin
