Hi Rebecca, thanks for your friend request and your comment. I think I gave you the impression I was in Auld Reekie, but you're right, it's not far.  I think you will definitely have an advantage playing the clarsach as you'll know about chords and tuning strings. I used to play the flute so am acquainted with music but that's all - and I am going mad trying to tune my new dulcimer, so haven't played anything this whole week. My daughter plays the clarsach - she's quite gifted, used to go to the Harp Festival in Edinburgh (does that still run?)- but she just laughs when I try to do anything  musical. I went to a harp workshop once and returned from it able to play "Postman Pat", much to her amusement. Anyway, I am determined to learn and as I'm American I feel something of an attachment to the dulcimer - even though I'm not from that side of the US.

I will think about Allendale. It sounds like a wonderful opportunity. Thanks for the encouragement!

Dear Rebecca, 

No need to apologize, I'm glad to hear from you.  Sorry your were ill. It sounds like a real siege.  I had a back problem that took me from my usual life for about 5 weeks recently so I know what your talking about.  It's very common to pay close attention here for a spell and then take a break. 

Thanks for the message and best of luck.  Hope your health is mended and your projects give you a lot of satisfaction.

Dusty

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.
