John:

We have a farmers market each Saturday(ending soon), with a very large number of musicians who have  come  to perform. Most of their music is old time pieces with simple cording and tunes. They retreat to a café during the off season. To date no chromatic or diatonic MD have shown up. After I get more proficient at cording, next year I  will hope to join their fine group. Hence my reason for joining your group.

Right now I play one string at a time with old fav's, swing, blues and developing Jazz. Strumming all strings with appropriate cording will be my new challenge. Thanks for your response.  JI

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.

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.
