  1. like your site . I’m new to the dulcimer and you play basic and up so you help the beginner as well as someone with more experience that can add as there playing at home ………..

    thanks Joe

  2. Do you have the DAD tab for Sally Ann the way your group plays it? I got the tab off another site and it’s different. I get lost 🙂

  3. I think this is it. If this isn’t it it’s real close. I’ll look later and post it:
    A Part:
    7 7 7 4 5 5 5 5 7 5 4 2 4 4 4 4
    5 4 2 0 1 1 1 1 2 1 0 (1) 0 0 0 0

    B Part:
    2 2 2 0 1 1 1 1 2 1 0 (1) 0 0 0 0

    Note: (1) is on the middle string

  4. Thanks so much. I do enjoy playing along with your group. There isn’t anyone near me who plays.

  5. I live on Dayton Mtn., in Tennessee, between Dayton and Pikeville. You’d think they’d be Dulcimer players around, but so far I haven’t found any. There was supposed to be a club in Crossville but I haven’t gotten any contact back from them. I wish I were closer.

  6. I did find a club in Chattanooga. It’s about an hour’s drive away from me. I’ll contact them. Thanks for the link. I’d forgotten about the one in Chattanooga.

  7. I may have to. I’ve asked people who play music, but they’re guitar players or fiddle. I can’t find another dulcimer player in the whole county….yet 🙂

  8. if you have a local or county paper suggest to them they do an article about mountain dulcimers and how to contact you about forming a jam group. Even a classified ad might work. Mention it music stores or pawn shops etc. Just play where people gather for music, even at a public park or farmers market, you’d be surprised how many people will say they have a dulcimer or want to learn…

  9. I have another favor to ask. Do you have the tabs for Red Wing? I can pick out most of it until you start doing the runs at the speed of light and then you lose me:) If it’s too much trouble just forget it, I will figure it out eventually. I’m pretty proud of myself. I’ve learned the beginner tunes thanks to your videos, and am starting on the jam tunes now. You are such a great group! Thanks so much.

  10. Do you have the tab for I’m so lonesome I could die? I would love to play along with you on this one. Thank you Mary
