I live in Albquerque, NM.  I work as a computer technician for Albuquerque Public Schools.  I have played the dulcimer off and on since 1980 but have never advanced very far.  I like to play on just the melody strings as that's the way I self taught back in the 80's.  I really don't like the modern style of playing as I don't feel the power of the music. I think that the way dulcimers are being played now is too far from traditional.
