Subject: RE: Learning Lap Dulcimer- Tips? Tricks?
The Mountain Dulcimer is one of my favorite instruments. I have lived in several cites where there was a nearby organization for Dulcimers &/or Traditional Music. They often teach all about the playing of the instruments during the meetings! Ask around at the local Music shops if they know of any organizations in the area, and also, I suggest you ask about a Mountain Dulcimer teacher. Or, ask about local Traditional Music Jam sessions. There are many tunings, many styles of playing, and thousands of tunes to play. Cindi Lauper doesn't have to be the only famous Musician to play Mountain Dulcimer--it is a truly versatile instrument.
