Listening to music sometimes there’s an instrument and I’m like oh that’s cool, that one sounds like somebody hitting a piano’s strings with a stick, sort of sounds like a harpsichord — Which is silly, because I’ve played around with a dulcimer once and I definitely know what one is. I just never really put two and two together. Today I did, and now I really want to learn how to play the hammer dulcimer.
Actually, I sort of want to try my hand at making a hammered dulcimer. Just not sure how to do the tuning pegs. Also not sure if it would sound any good.
