The Dulcinator and me

My friend built the DULCINATOR II for me. It was my birthday present. Been wanting one for a couple years now! I was at a Bluegrass Picking Party and my friend Topher had me play it and people could HEAR me when I play now. The tone is incredible and so alive. I play and practice all the time and it's been so easy to switch from guitar to dulcimer songs and tunings...I'm very happy with the Dulcinator. It's part dobro and dulcimer or a resophonic dulcimer.

I've heard that Regina passed away last night in her sleep at the IBMA conference in Nashville, after jamming till 4 am. So sorry to hear this! I've known since 1976 when I met her in LA. I remember one wonderful dulcimer get together at Gregg Schneeman's mom's house in Pasadena. It included Reggie, Gregg, I believe the Chinchillas, a few other folks, and me. Regina later moved to the Santa Cruz area where we occasionally met for jamming. At that time, her playing was heavily influenced by Joanie Mitchell and Joellen Lapidus. As I knew her, she was always upbeat, open and up for sharing tunes and songs. I greatly enjoyed her playing and her optimistic and playful energy.
