Thread Name: How to tune a 3 string dulcimer
Subject: RE: How to tune a 3 string dulcimer
I was at a garage sale of an Amish family last weekend, where they had one for sale. A guy asked the father how to tune it, and the he replied "I'll have our expert show you".

Out came a 7 year old girl, who gave a quick "how to" workshop to a load of us who stood there with our jaws down to our knees.

Made me think hard about how complicated we adults make even the simplest things!

(Not that I'm saying I could tune a 3 string dulcimer after watching her, mind you).
