Subject: RE: Learning to play a Mountain Dulcimer
Is the DAA a recommendation to all or to Dipso... with the deeper voice? Which is the highest melody string in this arrangement?

My dulcimer was tuned AA (double strings) A (middle string) G (low string)
I tried DAD but am not so happy with it so far

Which direction do you pluck? I was strumming away from me, towards the deep string and someone said I should strum the other way around (indeed on a guitar I would start with my deepest string).

re banjo strings, are we talking about 4 string tenor banjo or the 5-string banjo? which gauges of these strings(when using paired string arrangement)?
