I love this magazine! First, I read it cover to cover - then try the tunes. Great inspiration to practice and hope to sound like the CD someday!

Hi, good job. I am learning how to play my hammer dulcimer now that I have retired from the Navy.

I enjoy the magazine very much - it has improved so much since I first started getting it. Love the CDs, and the articles from people I have met along the way. Keep up the good work.

What Goes Around Comes Around:
Picture a volunteer living in Israel thinking “now is the time to learn a musical instrument, but what?” She cruised around on the computer and decided the lap dulcimer was the most beautiful thing she’d ever heard. She found me on the computer and my note to our list of dulcimer owners in the country turned up a nice dulcimer someone was willing to loan, but it was in the desert and she was in the north. No problem, another desert dulcimer player took it on the train with her one day and the volunteer got to the destination train station and picked it up swaddled in a blanket. We recently met at the Autumn Sde Boker Mountain Dulcimer Retreat and she took to that instrument like a duck to water. While some of us dulcimer players like to stick to the “old ways” it is gratifying to see that that new-fangled computer would carry such an important function and still facilitate human contact. Of course, it was still the goodness of the dulcimer players that made it actually happen.

I enjoy the magazine and I’m always glad to see what’s inside when it arrives. It seems to me that at times, there is more hammered dulcimer TAB than mountain dulcimer TAB. (Just a plug for us mountain dulcimer players!)

I renewed online so as not to miss an issue. Is it possible to make an inclusive list of the songs and artists from all the CDs? Perhaps a list each year. Thanks for the magnificient magazine and CD. Thanks for your consideration, too.

Really enjoyed the article on “Musical Giving” by Judith Giddings.

Just a New Year’s thank you to you [Angie] and Dan for your seemingly unending energy at keeping the music alive! I was able to share some time with him at Swannanoa a few years ago – he is not only energetic in his teaching and performing, but energizes all around him to explore moving beyond traditional boundaries. The DPN demonstrates both your energies I am sure, and for someone a bit distant from any other players, I am so thankful for the continuing connection to knowledge, new music, and learning from others. Thank you so much!
Carolyn Hudnall, WA
Thanks for providing the dulcimer community with such a beautiful and informative magazine. I usually read it totally the first day I receive it. I especially like the CDs, the spotlights, the music presented and the whole layout.
Judy Jackson, FL
Hi, Dan! Hope you and your family are doing well. I really appreciate all the effort you put - in so many ways - into supporting the dulcimer community. Your work is always top-notch. Keep it up!
Cindy Stephenson, SC
Please renew my subscription, and thank you for reminding me by email. You produce a beautiful magazine. I look forward to each issue.

Great magazine - you probably don’t charge enough for it!
