Everything dulcimer is a good site. I've gotten lots of good music from that site. Another want to look at is "Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer"

Nice to see this thread - I also play dulcimer. Perfect size for the camper.

It is a fun compact instrument.
For myself, and the reason I said ...10yrs ago... is that I've moved all my music making onto my iPad and headphones. Now I can practice and create to my soul's content in private, which I prefer these days. I had many years up on _stage_ playing for crowds, now it's just for me : )

That said, there is much to be said about hiking up some mountain and taking out a harmonica or whatever and playing to the clouds.

Thanks for the complements Thom..
I play for me, but do enjoy an occasional jam session and my favorite is what I call "camp fire concerts". Most of our travels is in good weather, if the weather's not good where we are we move. Not full timers.
The dulcimer travels well and makes a nice sound.
Next on my agenda is to finish a cigar box guitar I started a couple months ago.

Both of these sites look helpful. Thanks for the tips, I'm getting motivated.

Byron, "if you build it they will come."
Once you build a couple then the bug gets you and there is no stopping.

There's just no way to tell ahead where a hobby will go. By the way how goes the carving?

Howdy James.
The carving going great. I just finished my Christmas carvings. Three grandchildren get grandpa carved ornaments, 4 daughters and one granddaughter get carved Christmas pins. It can be a challenge since I started this process it seems necessary for me to come up with a Byron original design. We spend part of our summer going to free local band "music in the park" events. Great fun sitting around listening to local music and carving.
I think ties it together a bit, carving, mountain dulcimers, and music.

I've also been playing around with Cajon that I made. More fun.

Looks like a nice collection of instruments. My collection seems to be growing.

I do feel that we should live closer than so far apart. We have a lot of common interests.
There are more pictures of my instruments on the other thread, " a cut above" .
I hope that we have encouraged others to try their hand at something new, you never know where a hobby will lead.

I have managed to encourage at least 3 people to take the Mountain Dulcimer. Sometime in February I'll be meeting one of them in Death Valley for a bit of music.
We generally travel the southwest US in the winter. If you should decide you want to get away from the cold and snow in Ontario and head for sunny weather, let me know, maybe we meet up.

I moved from Washington, DC area to Sonora, CA almost 8 years ago. Learned to play about 35 yeas ago and used to play with friends in a band, campouts, etc. Anyone know of a group in Central/Northern CA that would welcome a very rusty Mtn. Dulcimer player?

James, yes, you and Byron are providing encouragement. I need to finish what I started so many years ago. Then, start playing!

An interesting gourd stick dulcimer built by another member of our carving club. There are several other members now making instruments and learning to play.
