Okay well I think this is cool. There are instructions for three different variations of a dulcimer and the entire history of the instrument. I really want to make one of these now (there's even basic playing instructions!). I have a huge soft spot for Dulcimers. And Banjos. And Fiddles. And the Spoons. I'm a traditional Americana-Folk musician in denial.
I highly recommend these books, if for nothing else but a humorous look at yesteryear, but also for their helpful hints. If you ever see them, take a gander, I guarantee they will put a smile on your face! Oh and let me know I'm missing the second half of L-Z.
Tomorrow I have some exciting news! (providing I can get it all ready! Wish me luck!)
