Hunter,
Mountain Stage!!!! Not your last time on the show, methinks.

Yes, Nathaniel competed, unfortunately he did not make the break although he did very well (of course!).

Johnathon Dowell, Aaron Thornton, Aaron O' Roarke, Bradley Ellis and myself were in the final round. When they announced the numbers of who made the break, I was so relived. My goal was to make the break and so I was much more relaxed while playing in the 2nd set.

I am very happy about my placing. And of course, I can always try again!

Hunter,
As always, a pleasure to see you! You did a great job teaching class and my bird charm is on the dulcimer that's on my lap right now.
If you get a chance, would you fill me in on what I missed today? (I was sorry not to get to hear Emily at the contest-- Mark and I had had something come up so broke camp and headed home this morning.

Saw you have to put your dropped jaw back in place at the concert Saturday eve!

One of your fans,
Robin

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.
