Gracie Posted March 19, 2020 Share Posted March 19, 2020 It had been a long while since I had seen or heard a hammered dulcimer. Last month a Celtic group was playing, so I came home and googled and read and listened. I do not have one. My question: is it any good to play it at home just for me or will this get old and boring without others and a "backup band"? I used to play piano and can still peck away. Tried a guitar but the hands and wrists and fingers didn't compute with holding and playing vs. horizontally on the piano. A piano can be a complete melody and song on its own. Concerned about getting a dulcimer and then it being a dust catcher due to lack of music and songs I recognize. I know everyone's boredom level is different -- just wondered how feasible this is.
