Thread Name: Four Equidistant String Dulcimer?
Subject: RE: Four Equidistant String Dulcimer?
I have a dulcimer made by a wonderful craftsperson and eccentric named Michael Bourquin who runs a shop called "The Flop Eared Muse" in Philadelphia. It has notches for both trad and 4-string setup, and I use the latter. Michael, who's the only person I took any lessons from (two; I'm really self-taught), showed me something out of the Howie Mitchell book -- an arrangment of "Drink to Me Only" -- that arrangement has lots 'n' lots of chords and thus is a great resource.

Good luck, all.
