Thread Name: Learning to play a Mountain Dulcimer
Subject: RE: Learning to play a Mountain Dulcimer
This is a great thread topic, and GUEST grahamehood has almost answered the question that I am researching--I've established that banjo strings are what I need for a mountain dulcimer, but are there different types of banjo strings, steel versus nylon, like for guitars? Are there brands that are particularly good for mountain dulcimers? Do I have to know how I'm going to tune it before I choose the strings?
