Link to my Stick Dulcimer User's Guide stored up on MediaFire

I have finally uploaded the current version of my Stick Dulcimer User's Guide up to a new account on MediaFire. I have the file set up to be shared via the following URL:

https://www.mediafire.com/folder/uuvgfigvnooly/Stick_Dulcimer

Here's the link you should be able to just click on to get there.

The file is in .rtf (rich text) format so you should be able to view it using WordPad, MS Word, or any MS Word viewer, and perhaps other text editors/word processors that support .rtf format.

Any comments can be posted as a comment to this blog entry. Please limit comments to constructive criticism (errors found, suggestions for improvement, etc.). There are likely to be areas where I'm weak and this will likely show in my documentation. 

I am posting this document as a public domain document in hopes of "furthering the cause" of stick dulcimers. These diatonic instruments should be much more popular than they are. I believe this problem is due to the lack of a common (generic) name for these instruments, limiting the effectiveness of the marketing efforts already made by the various builders who have been forced to call their products by different names. I hope you builders out there will adapt "stick dulcimer" as the generic name, if you have not already done so. So, feel free to use this document for source material for your own documentation. I assume you will want to do things like customize the photos to show you own product instead of mine, and you may have additional features that you will want to document. 

That's all for now.

-Rand.
