John, Thanks for the warm welcome. hello to a fellow educator and Nice Dulcimers!
To introduce you to what I do, I have a 5 minute Dulcimer Project documentary on my website www.storiesandstrings.com and a full project 1 hour chaptered DVD training program ($8) is available so that schools, Youth groups, churches and other interested organizations and individuals can get the kits through me and easily do this program locally whereever they are. Looking forward to being a part of this community. Feedback appreciated.

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.
