However, I did just buy a hammered dulcimer and am learning how to play it. I'm catching on pretty quickly. I bought the dulcimer the Saturday before Christmas, and by Christmas Eve I had memorized and could play 8 Christmas songs! It was fun playing for the family...they were all pleasantly surprised.
In the photo below, I'm explaining the string arrangement to my grandson, who is barely in the photo, on the right.
Now I'm working on some Rich Mullins songs. You can find instructional videos on You Tube--yippee! I appreciate the guys who went to the trouble of making those videos.
I also joined EverythingDulcimer.com so I can get acquainted with the dulcimer-playing community. I'm sure I can learn a lot from them.
This has been a lot of fun, as well as quite a challenge, especially for someone over 50! And it gives me something to do while Tim is playing Call of Duty. :-)
