Bill D Tech: Musical instrument not needing dexterity (51* d) RE: Tech: Musical instrument not needing dexterity 21 Sep 20

I thought I replied yesterday... but..*shrug*.
I agree with Don Meixner... for a dulcimer, the left hand is more important, as fretting takes a bit more control, whereas strumming can be done gently and with various types of picks. I also play autoharp and the same general advice applies there. In many ways, autoharp is a bit easier, as chording is done by button. Tuning one can be more tedious than playing one.... but if you have clip-on digital and a good ear, it's pretty routine.

Good luck...
