Hey friends!  I have a new player friend who needs a case or gig bag for his dulcimer.  He's a senior citizen and on a somewhat limited budget.  He'll pay for it, but doesn't have a lot of disposable income.  Anyone have a used one they'd be willing to part with?  I can pick it up (and -pay for it) if it's in the general Indy area.  Thanks!

Will definitely try to make this as soon as the travel winds down.

I absolutely will, Sharon!  Thanks for the tip.  I've been really impressed with Tull at Spiceland!

Folks, I hope it's OK to post this here.  My wife,  myself, and hammer dulcimer person Sharon O'Connell have started a new, all ages jam in Indy, 1st and 3rd Monday of each month at Big Mike's Cafe, 9611 N College in Indy.  Dulcimers are ESPECIALLY welcome, but we won't turn any acoustic instrument away.  We've long felt the need for an all ages acoustic jam in the area.  6-8PM, 1st and 3rd Mondays.  Hope some of y'all can join us!

Rick,  I'd really recommend Tull's DOGs.   It's open to all dulcimer players.  You won't find a more talented dulcimer performer/player/teacher anywhere than Tull.  I have a few folks who started in our Spiceland group and have move on to Tull's group and have really learned a lot.  I suggest you give it a try some Wednesday.  You'll be glad you did.

Susan, thank you!  I had no idea about that group.  I'm free MOST Wednesdays  (but not this one, sadly) so I'll get to participate in November!  Thank you for the tip!

I can't believe, as I am working on the Bi-Centennial, that I forgot about Sam Stone.  If you are working on that, take a look at Sam's music.  Sam wrote many songs, one of them Dancing the Indiana Waltz.

Tull put Yesterday's Treasures, another of Sam's songs,  in DAD as one of his monthly tabs some time ago.

The DOGs (Dulcimers Only Group), led by Tull Glazener, meets as follows: The Dulcimer Only Group meets the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month, 7 PM at Robin Run Village, 5354 West 62nd Street in Indianapolis.

It's a subset of the Central Indiana Folk Music and Dulcimer Society.

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.
