Thread Name: ultimate dulcimer
Subject: RE: ultimate dulcimer
...and a memory from my past too...

1962 my old friend,
Mike Sideman, and I had made our way to Mexico City on a bus---1200 miles from El Paso / Juarez. --- The very first hammered dulcimer / cymbolom I'd ever seen was one being played by a blind man in the bus station at Mexico City.
I never knew whether it had been a cymbolom of a hammer dulcimer that fellow was playing, but I never forgot it!
