Personally, I like my Keith Young model. I also built a kit instrument years ago that I use when not playing with the Brandywine Dulcimer Fellowship. I like it's high, sweet, and quiet sound.
Jean, if you are still there, your book was the first one that I played from. I still have it. A few years ago, a good friend of mine used the cover of it to lay out a cross stitch pattern and stitched it for me. I'm a lefty ( but I play right handed ) and she turned it around to show you playing left handed! It hangs on my wall along with my dulcimers and I get many favorable comments on it.
Jean, are you ever going to come out with another music book that has some of the tunes from your Kentucky Christmas album on it?
