Afternoon Trevor, from the UK chapter of FOTMD. You've made a wise choice to join up here. Plenty of friendly people and answers to just about any dulcimer-related question you could ask.
Do shout if you need to know anything and, as a beginner, have a read of this page which should be helpful... http://revelsmusic.co.uk/resources/dulcimer-tuition/
All the best. Enjoy! Geoff
Wow! What a warm and friendly welcome! I am a complete beginner and my new dulcimer arrived today. It's a McSpadden Standard Hourglass in walnut which I bought from Bird Rock Dulcimers here in the UK. All I have to do now is learn how to play it .
I have played guitar for many years and dabble with the banjo, mandolin and ukulele, so I'm looking forward to learning. FOMD looks like a great resource and I'm sure will be very helpful.
Howdy and welcome to the FOTMD crew!
