Thanks Lexie - Please feel free to ask any questions you have and I'll try to help. I love playing noter drone style as I think it brings out the unique nature of these wonderful instruments Smile.gif

Hi Robin, Thanks for your tuning tutorials, with no musical experience you have taught me much.

I am working on learning the simple scale and hearing the different modes.

Not quite there yet, but I will know where to come for review.

I have also learned from your strumming and noter.

Thanks everyone with comments, you also add allot to my learning journey of the beautiful dulcimer.41.gif

Robin, though I'm sure some people think it's "overkill," I usually bring 2 dulcimers, tuned differently to make the transition between keys easier. I also, though I love my instruments with pegs, bring only instruments with geared tuners for ease in changing tunings. I also keep a capo on each of them, in case I need to get in, for example, G really fast. Of course sometimes they're moving so quickly, I have had to just barre the chords. All that being said (whew,) next session to which I go, I will take 3 stringers and a noter and see if I can't "fit it in" the session as well as you do. You're carrying on a great tradition there and I love to listen to you. Your cd is in mypermanentrotation for the car.

Wonderful again, Robin. That low "G" tuning made that McSpadden sound like I D Stamper. Loved it!
