Subject: RE: Learning to play a Mountain Dulcimer
Hi there, South Oxfordshire Guest ! Good to know of someone else in the UK who is learning dulcimer - I got mine last month and so far been having fun playing around with different tunings. Aren't they the most beautiful instruments ever ?

As well as the website Cornflake suggests, another good one I have found is Dennis DenHartog's Mountain Dulcimer Page

I can't help with suggesting teachers, but if your request here draws a blank, a good port of call would be the Oxford branch of the shop "The Music Room" - very helpful people who may well know someone in your area. They also sell a load of instruction and tune books for dulcimer.

Thanks for asking this question - it's thrown up that massive list of Mudcat dulcimer threads, that will keep me busy for weeks !

Best of luck,
- jeanie
