Question Dulcimer is tuned to DAD, the 1st fret has been divided into 2, same as the 6th fret. Is the 1st fret D#, 2nd fret E, 3rd fret F#? I am new to the dulcimer so I want to make sure. Thank you
Answer Joan, I don't really read music for the dulcimer, but I have several friends who do and I"ll be happy to refer your question to them and get back to you - a photo of the dulcimer and its fretboard would be most helpful - you can send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
