"Hi, Bill - Coshocton looks interesting, but why, oh why, do festival schedules overlap? This one collides with the start of Kentucky Music Week. I'll report on KMW if you'll report on Coshocton? Mary Jane"

Hi Mary Jane, Just joined FOTMD, and was checking out its' members.  Found Nancy S. and of course you!..I see not any recent comments on your page.  So here is one from me.  I joined the Echo mountain dulcimer trupe in Ortenville,  Mi. They are a new group, and play mostly in DAA.  Some have asked me to help them learn a little about the DAD tuning.  I did say I would help with what I have learned over the years,  and a lot of help from you when we get together to jam..which hasn't been very often lately.. Looking forward to IDF in July will you...later...Joyce

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.
