Welcome LittleJoe! One thing to be aware of is that there is virtually nothing written specifically for banjimer. banjammer, banjo-dulcimer, whatever name you use. It is normally played flat on your lap like any other dulcimer,strummed or fingerpicked with the right hand and noted or chorded with the left. All discussions of left and right hand technique, tuning, etc. apply.
You may want to check out an article I wrote here a few years ago called I Just Got A Dulcimer, Now What?
It's an illustrated glossary of dulcimer terms, plus answers to many beginner questions about tuning, playing, care and feeding of your new BFF. ED's article section is under re-construction right now, but you can read the article here:http://mountaindulcimer.ning.com/profil ... r-now-what
