Thanks for your thoughts. I guess it is time to get serious and actually practice on a regular schedule. I will probably surprise myself with the results.

Thanks for the info on this. I really love that other one you play. It looks small, 3/4 size but sounds fantastic. Thanks for all this, I love the tunes you pick, the way you play them, the dulcimers you play them on...everything. Just want to see your face!

I wondered how you snuck in here without my greeting you, as I do that to all I see. Like all your hymns and harmonized along on y stick dulcimer. Too much fun. Also very curious about this student dulcimer you have. I'm getting some students and haven't settled yet on what to recommend to them, other than the Backyard Cardboard starter one. Hope to know you better, from the frozen wastelands of Vermont. It snowed last night if you can believe that.

Hi William,

I wish I had a really interesting story about the Dulcimer Works dulcimer, but like you, I bought it on eBay shortly before my original posts about it. It really is remarkable, all the nice detail work in it. When I got it, it was really cruddy, and the bridge had the edge broken off. I made a new matching bridge staying as faithful as possible to the original, which also matches the original nut. I bought it about the time I was getting really interested in noter/drone playing, having started in DAdd chord/melody that is really popular in this area. It''s beautifully set up for noter/drone, including relief in the fretboard (slightly concave). Since then, I've continued my interest in noter/drone, and my "collection" now includes one by Ledford, one by Mize, and reproductions of Thomas and Prichard dulcimers. Oh, and I got into Galax dulcimers as well. Like many, we're downsizing, getting ready to move into a smaller, single story house, and it's time to let other folks enjoy some of the dulcimers that I don't pick up as often. I am really pleased that it will be played and appreciated. Thanks for taking time to contact me.

Parker

Hi William, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn and exchange ideas about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.
