Hi Songbird, oh my I have always wanted to be a singer but I can hardly carry a tune. I too am a RV'er. We usually stick close to home but we have gone to KC,MO with it. My bestie plays the mountain dulcimer and has been trying to teach me to play but we just can't connect. She is a righty and I am a lefty. I just can't get it so we went to Branson in November and visited the dulcimer shop and fiddled with the psaltery I loved it. I can't read music but with her all I have to do is follow the numbers on her music. So maybe down the road I can play with her. Anyway, Welcome and enjoy.
Hello Songbird. I love your profile name :) . I will be at the US Olympic Training Center later this spring, which I think is not too far from you. Any way, Welcome to Psaltery Strings! Check out some of the videos posted, I hope you enjoy being here with us.
