  1. The videos are great! I enjoyed them so much. Thanks for posting them. How can I get the tabs for the beginner and basic jam tunes?

  2. Barbara, glad you enjoyed the videos. Most of the tabs are probably available at
    Start with everythingdulcimer.com

    Hope this helps!

  3. Do you have anyone in your association that plays hammered dulcimer?

  4. We don’t have any “real” hammered dulcimer players but if you play you’d be most welcomed to join us. Jerry & Louise were given one a couple months back and are learning to play. I acquired this vintage hammered dulcimer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5HqDjMMzbc but other than “Bile Them Cabbage Down” can’t really claim to be a player
