Hey Ruth!  Didn't know you were on here.  Glad to see you!  Just found your 'not attending' for our do on Saturday.  Although I know it is too far to go for just one day, it sure would be fun if you could be here!  Ah well,  just think - if we didn't have internet - we still wouldn't know each other!   Hey - did you know - you have been playing dulcimer at least 3 times as long as I have.

Ruth,
Always happy to have more BD players to spread the word and the joy of bowing!
Just shortly ago, I posted Hunting the Buffalo to my page-- I'm playing simple BD accompaniment to my husband's guitar picking. Although my play's far from perfect, it's fun to make the music! :)

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.
