Thread Name: my non-lap dulcimer
Subject: RE: my non-lap dulcimer
leenia, the strummed/fretted/lap/appalachian/etc. Dulcimer is believed to have been invented in the Easter USA-there is great debate re by whom & in which Mountainous region-not the mid or far east. The hammered dulcimer did come over from the mid or far east & is an amazing instrument.
