For about a year now a group of folks have been getting together Tuesday evenings on Zoom to play mountain dulcimer together. We invite you join us. We play noter or finger dancing style mostly in DAA but also in DAC, DAG, and DAd. The format is one person leads a song/tune while everyone else is muted and plays along. While Dave Holeton usually leads, others have led as well. You are welcome to join us. We meet on Tuesday evenings at 8:30 p.m. (EDT), 7:30 p.m. (CDT), 6:30 p.m. (MDT), and 5:30 p.m. PDT. A link for each week's meeting is available on The Traditional Mountain Dulcimore website. Here is a link to the thread where meetings are posted: https://thetraditionalappalachiandulcimore.com/board/47/ttad-zoom-group

The meeting lasts for 40 minutes and we usually work on four songs.

I'm just bumping this up hoping some folks who enjoy traditional style playing might drop by. All are welcome. One of the nice things about meeting on Zoom is that no one hears your mistakes. Everyone except the tune leader is muted. We can only hear the leader and ourself  playing. We are pretty easygoing.

Hi Alphie. We welcome all levels of players. All of us are experienced players at different places on our dulcimer journey. Since we play noter/drone style (or finger dancing) exclusively, it isn't difficult for a beginner. All the notes will be on the melody string. Since we can't hear each other you don't need to embarrassd about making mistakes. I sometimes find myself getting lost by missing a repeat, or hitting th wrong fret while reading the tab. The more you practice (play the tunes) the easier it becomes and plying with others, even on Zoom, is a great way to improve your playing. Most of the tunes we play are in DAA, but we do sometimes play in other tunings by retuning the melody string. Join us at The Traditional Appalachian Dulcimore and give it try.
