I am soon to be 76 God willing. I love music and am fascinated with stringed instruments. Do not know how to play well, but for own enjoyment I think I will pass. I am part of a volunteer group of 4 at present music lovers and we play for nursing homes when we can. We play Country, Gospel and Bluegrass. I thought that the Psaltery would be a nice addition to our group, replacing my guitar as we have two in the group, aa banjo and a bass guitar. wish us luck, me especially that I may learn well enough to realize my dream for the group and myself. I do have a small selfish streak.
