Chicken Charlie Hammered Dulcimer (22) Hammered Dulcimer 29 May 01

As some of you will recall, I bought a h.d. a while back. Finally figured out the principle on which strings are added, so I could tune it (it's a 16/15) from a book on the 12/11. I messed with it for awhile (lovely instrument) and then loaned it to another member of my group who said he needed a challenge. He plays guitar and keyboards by ear. So he's catching on to the h.d. just fine--but he turns it around, high strings toward him instead of lows. His rationale is that that puts the bass on the left and the treble on the right like a piano.

Except for the fact that I have to sit here customerless for another fifteen minutes, I would not bother to post this, but now that I have--any comments from other dulcimerians??
