Hi there! Well I'm just getting started with the dulcimer, I have a small I guess it would be considered a back packer tear drop by Applecreek. It's a four string and so far I've just been learning stuff in DAD. I eventually want to learn Old Time and Appalachian style. In my picture here is my Watauga County Fretless mountain banjo by John Peterson. I am learning it as well and just about have the clawhammer bum-ditty down. I look forward to Old Time music on it as well. As a child I was classically trained on the piano for over eight years and still play that. I do popular contemporary as well as classical on the keys. And I've been learning the guitar for over forty years. 😄 I thought that being a pianist it would correlate. Hah! Anyway I enjoy folk fingerstyle on the guitar. I love most music styles and can listen to anything except cRap. Class rock of the sixties, seventies and very early eighties gets me going. Thanks for the welcome! I look forward to learning a lot here from all of you accomplished dulcimer players.
