Back in October, I went to visit my sister who lives in the foothills of the North Carolina mountains. While I was there, I ordered a dulcimer to be made for me...for my own Christmas gift.
Well...it arrived this week...finally!
I've never played a stringed instrument before...and right off the bat, I could not figure out how to tune it...and all the people I know that could help me...are on vacation this week. I had purchased a digital electronic tuner...but couldn't hardly figure it out either. So...I kept reading...and playing around with it, until I figured it out enough to play.
I've joined a local dulcimer club that meets once a month...so I will get plenty of help...just not right now.
When I retired from teaching art a year and a half ago...one thing I said I wanted to do...was to learn to play an instrument.
