Dulcimer just arrived

10/11/16 04:25:02PM

I purchased a Student Dulcimer from Dave Lynch and it just arrived.  Now that I have it, I have a couple of questions. Over the past 2 months, I have done lots of research about dulcimers and how to play them.  Is the "Dulcimer School" on line program worth the price?  

Any tips on how to get my hands to work independently of each other?

What songs should I start with (BTW, I have no rhythm or musical talent).?

What about the best Pick?  Is that just a mater of taste?

Thanks for any advice.
