Hey Robin ... yep, the bowed dulcimer is addictive! And, unfortunately, both my nephew(in-law) and I are still using dial-up. Some of the satellite internet services are available now, but our neighbors using them have had some lousy experiences. We're on a "wait until the bugs are worked out here" frame of mind.
I'm trying to convert some Christmas music to chromatic tab. My niece (wife of the aspiring BD player) & I have Larry Conger's Christmas Duets book. He wants to play the BD while we play MD. Should be fun ... if we ever get it right.
