I have a beautiful hummingbird design Mountain Dulcimer. I have no musical training, but I love picking an old gospel song by ear. I would love to have a mentor.

There is a great online discussion forum called Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer: Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer - Appalachian mountain dulcimer players- make friends & your own dulcimer web page
You may be able to find a mentor there. I got a few tips from members on the website and actually found a wonderful teacher.

A mountain dulcimer sounds like fun and a great way to entertain yourself and others while camping. I took guitar lessons and played as a young teen. I put it down as soon as I turned 16 years old and started buying sports cars and motorcycles and discovered girls. I always regretted not sticking with the guitar and especially when I listen to some of my very talented friends play.
To make a long story short, I decided I wanted to relearn the guitar in retirement. But, then realized a guitar is too big to haul around in a small egg. So, I have taken up the mandolin, and been having a ball learning how to play it.
Now, while I'm not really a bluegrass fan, I do need someone to explain the jokes about the banjo. I once heard a banjo Dixie Land jazz band that was incredible!

In the past few weeks of traveling I've tried to pair up with a few musicians, a banjo player, a harmonica player and a couple guitar players. Some success with the guitar players, limited success with the harmonica player, and the banjo player and myself just played a bit for each other. All in all it was great fun.
I also have done two "around the camp fire" concerts with about a half dozen people enjoying the campfire, and maybe a bit the Dulcimer playing.

Now, while I'm not really a bluegrass fan, I do need someone to explain the jokes about the banjo

It's kinda a standing joke within the stringed instrument community. A banjo has a very clean, sharp, distinct penetrating sound which can really cut thru the other instruments. Of course, as a guitar picker, I'd claim that I sometimes find that intrusive - the banjoists would tell ya it's really just repressed envy....lol...

Really, it's all good when you get to make music with anyone else playing anything else...
