Thread Name: Help, urgent advice on lap dulcimer
Subject: Help, urgent advice on lap dulcimer
I've just been loaned a lap dulcimer by my local music shop. I love the sound and found it easy to pick out a first tune (Soldiers Return).
I've only got it for a few days, so can anyone point me in the direction of a web site that explains different tunings etc.
If I decide to buy then I will follow the advice on some older threads and get Jean Ritchie's book and tapes. But meanwhile I guess I'm looking to see how versatile the instrument is.
Any help would be welcome
