Hi Vicki, please see my private message in your INBOX... thanks! :)
Does anyone know where I can get a music holder that is held secure by part of it being under the dulcimer? Every time I see one at a festival, the person tells me that a friend made it for them. I sure would like to have one of these instead of a floor stand. Thanks!
You were correct Vicki - you didn't see my name. I changed it from VTMama to my name. :) I didn't notice that about the workshop - yes I would like that. Perhaps we can connect to setup a time? I will pm you. Thanks!
Hahaha - right - my name isn't on here! Nicole Bartlett. My email is email@example.com
I was going to ask you your thoughts on the workshop - I would LOVE to attend, but I'm really just starting out. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to keep up.
Hi Vicki! Thank you for the warm welcome! I had heard about Kingdom Mountain Dulcimers and would love to attend a jam! I am truly a beginner (I just got my dulcimer a few weeks ago), but I am enjoying practicing every night. My husband and I have begun playing together (he plays guitar) - it's a blast. I unfortunately won't be able to attend a session until mid-April, but I am looking forward to it! :)
Hi Vicki. Miss you guys. Just saw your comment. Got over that one and just had another one. Geez, a lady hardly gets a chance to practice in between. I don't know anything about bass dulcimers, but I'm sure someone on here does. If you could find a used baritone and string it with heavier strings it would give you an idea - might want a new nut to do it, and saddle, so the original one doesn't get widened out. Had a bad experience putting baritone strings on a regular one for just half an hour, do it at your own risk. There is a new player on here, VTMama from Barnet - hope you can catch up with her, I told her about the group, but also NOT to miss playing N/D lol. Say hi to all, no hope of travel these days.
Hi Vicky ! Always great to hear from folks we've met at past festivals !!
I have heard of "Reel de Gaspé" before, but I'm not familiar with the tune. Unfortunately, I wouldn't have the Tab for that one... sorry. I did some Youtube searching and seems like there may be 2 different tunes with the same name. I have a French-Canadian fiddle tune book that may have the notation for Reel de Gaspé. If it does, I'll see what I can come up with.
Welcome to FOTMD Vicki. It's good to have you aboard.

Howdy and welcome to FOTMD!
Vicki, I also meant to mention that at the top of the page is a heading for Groups; it is a drop-down menu where you can find a listing for Northeastern United States group that you can join.
Hi Vicki, 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.
Hey Vicki, welcome aboard. Glad ya found us.
