Oh, that would be fun, Cyndi!

Too bad you aren't in Southern IN..we meet Tuesdays

Comment by Rick Garrett on Monday

So, are there any groups/clubs in central Indiana that meet on weeknights?  (or even weekdays).  Having a shop in Metamora that is open on weekends, I'm pretty much limited to a through the week club.

Thank you, Sharon.  I'd love to find some folks who might be willing to do a lunchtime jam.  Since we're just getting started, we don't have much of a budget...but we can at least feed some folks :)

Regarding Rick's post:  If you know someone who is wanting to get started on the dulcimer, this will be a great opportunity for them.  There will be dulcimers for them to use.   We will be starting from scratch,  assuming no musical or dulcimer knowledge at all.

Hey friends!  I just wanted to let you know about Dulcimer Day in Metamora, Indiana, on November 8th.  Our own Sharon Day will be teaching a beginners workshop in the morning, there'll be a nice lunch break for you to wander around town or jam, and then John Sheckler will be teaching an intermediate/non traditional workshop in the afternoon. I'm hoping that we have enough interest to have a swap/sell/buy area, also.  Best of all?  100% free.  Let me know if you want details.  Thanks for letting me post this!

Julia, as soon as I find something out concrete, I certainly will!

Thanks for the info, Rick.

Would you mind letting me know what your group might do?  I know it is early, but If I have to tab out songs, I need some time.  I'm really slow!  :)

Visit Strumelia's Beginner Noter-Drone dulcimer Blog

I have a main blog for Traditional style mountain dulcimer playing here: Mountain Dulcimer Noter-drone Blog This is an old style of playing where you only fret your notes on the melody string, while letting the drones strings ring open. In my blog, I express my personal views about playing, I offer free TAB and free beginner videos, and I try to help beginners understand in a very basic simple way the 'mysteries' of playing the mountain dulcimer in traditional modal noter/drone style.
