Thread Name: Mountain dulcimer fingerpicks
Subject: RE: Mountain dulcimer fingerpicks
Actually, I have heard dulcimer flatpicked, so that's another technique. In fact, some people even use a bow on it, usually just for a novelty tune. So far I've only done strumming or fingerpicking myself.

I've been spending most of my musical time trying to learn the fiddle, but I love to use the dulcimer to back up songs. I hope to learn more dulcimer melody playing, including flatpicking, at some point…perhaps when I get the new picks. For now, I'll be happy if I can solve the extraneous noise problem! Zhenya
