Thanks Keith.

Thanks, Andries. This one is tuned DAD. Once I figured out how to bend things and how to put some strength at the waist it went fairly easy. I'm new to this vid thing but will try it again.

Thanks egyptpunk, DAD will open up a whole new world of playing once you get used to it.

Sounds great Gary! I have always played DAA too, but might have to give DAD another shot. Hard not to love dulcimers :)

I really don't know the answer on the fest, Gary.  I hope it is a good one.  

Comment by gary herget on August 1, 2016 at 9:23am

Thanks UJ, I kinda wondered if the fest would truly represent the CBG.

Comment by gary herget on August 1, 2016 at 9:22am

Thanks Scott, this is tuned DAD to play chords, DAA is what I learned first and still use alot.

Comment by Uncle John on August 1, 2016 at 9:07am

That was a truly nice listen.

Mojo fest in KC on 8/28.   Seems to be taking the place of the CBG fests.   More factory builts I think.   I am most likely staying home.

What a great project!  I love that dulcimer shape! What tuning are you using? All of our are tuned DAA.
