Mountain Dulcimer Player Resources

As we in Galax, VA begin our new mountain dulcimer club, I thought I’d post some helpful resources for members:

First, a couple of player’s forums with lots of good information:

Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer:
“Join Groups and Forum discussions that interest you, connect with new music friends, share photos, music clips, and videos, explore resources for buying instruments, music, and learning materials. Ask your beginner questions and learn to play your favorite tunes! All who love the Appalachian dulcimer are welcome here no matter what your style, skill level, or musical tastes. Fear not!…beginner players are especially encouraged. Become a member of Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer (FOTMD) community -it’s easy, friendly, and FREE!”

Everything Dulcimer:
How does continue to be the leading place for great dulcimer information? Because of the members of the national dulcimer community who routinely share information.

Here are the vital statistics:
