No worries, royston is not a million miles away, perhaps we can start a group for occasional meets? see how you get on with the dulcimer. there are a few dulcimer players in the north london area i think so royston could be central. maybe meet up once or twice a year or something. My son is also musical (guitarist) and he is starting out singer songwriting around cambridge. following a performance at CB2 recently he has been asked to sign up for the open mic at the folk club in Royston although we dont know the date yet (waiting list apparently) maybe you go that folk club? if so we could meet up there. i will let you know the date - we will be coming to watch him and cheer etc (proud parents naturally).let me know if there is anything i can do to help you on your way with the dulcimer although there are many much finer players than me here who can gIve you best advice and support. a good resource is the video page - you can see all sorts of different playing styles and tunings:0) Marion

hi trevor and welcome to FOTMD (and the UK and euro group within) from sunny cambridgeshire! i wonder how far you are over the border from me? Have been hoping to set up a local chapter of hell's dulcimers for some time but all the new entrants usually live too far away for gatherings :0(.Hope you enjoy your dulcimer - plenty of help and info on this site. its a great instrument which seems to enslave all its followers!Marion

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...

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 Smile.gif .

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.

Hi Trevor, 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. At the top of the page is a listing for Groups; it is a drop-down menu that will give you an opportunity to join the UK/European Group.
