Hi Toni, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer.  It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.  I love how you came to find and embrace the dulcimer.

Welcome to FOTMD Tonileewj. It's good to have you aboard. If you can't find answers to your questions by searching this site, go ahead and start another thread and ask. We enjoy answering questions whether or not we know the answer (just kidding on the second part). That's a good story on how your acquired your dulcimer.
