At NAMM 2019 in Anaheim, I met up with friend Patti Amelotte at the Dusty Strings booth. Dusty Strings, of Seattle, WA, makes beautiful, high quality hammered dulcimers and lever harps. Here is a video of Patti playing President Garfield’s hornpipe on one of their beautiful hammered dulcimers.
Sorry, Patti, I think I distracted you there in the middle.
Patti even gave me a lesson. Well it’s kind of an annual thing because I forget how the notes are arranged so Patti reminds me each year! My wife loves this instrument! Someday we will have room for one so I can practice and remember where the notes are!
