When my parents visited last month, my dad brought me a dulcimer, which is this folksy little instrument that I find so quaint and beautiful. I took a few lessons back in Seattle a couple years ago but never had my own dulcimer, so my dad kindly bought me one from a shop in Tennessee. It's handcrafted from walnut and is absolutely beautiful. I'm not very good (yet) as you'll see below, but playing it makes me happy and it's easier than guitar for a girl with small hands and weak fingers. Thank you, Dad.
You may just barely recognize "Oh, Susanna." Do any of you play an instrument?
