I know I've probably came across this somewhere but was in information overload and wasn't paying attention. What are these string of numbers referring to tuning the instrument. For example 135 145. Do I need to purchase an enigma decoder or is it as simple as "kiss" keeping it simple stupid. Thanks

Finally, a TAH DAH moment! When I started (several years ago)playing dulcimer I knew I had 3 strings and 5 fingers------everything else was rocket science to a caveman.It was hard to find someone to "turn the light on" for all this chords and stuff. I ended up writing down the fret numbers to press for certain chords, but I never knew why. This discussion has helped tremendously, now I can put the info in practice and start making sense out of what I am doing. Thanks for the info y'all.

I was the same way with electronics. As a kid(back when we had common sense and knew not to "f" with shit) I'd do projects from "Popular Electronics", winding isolation transformers, making a trigger coil for a strobe light. Follow directions, they worked! Why? Didn't have a clue. In basic electronics in the Air Force all this bits and pieces floating around in my mind would drop into place like a missing puzzle piece, driving my instructors nuts. This is the same scenario. Sheldon and Yoda have been a great help. LOL
