    The Ramones on a dulcimer. Makes perfect sense

    Thanks for that.
    I tried to find videos that I'd really enjoyed of Edmund Norris of the Ebony Hillbillies playing rockin' dulcimer on the streets of New York, but I can't find the videos on YouTube. His dulcimer was totally worn, with the top separated from the body -- enough to make a luthier weep, but what a sound. I was able to find other videos with him playing traditional music, indoors, on a "respectable" dulcimer, but those videos don't go with this thread.
    Robert Johnson's mother, describing blues musicians:
    "I never did have no trouble with him until he got big enough to be round with bigger boys and off from home. Then he used to follow all these harp blowers, mandoleen (sic) and guitar players."

    First watched Cindy Lauper playing dulcimer on her classic Time After Time on Austin City Limits a few years ago. May or may not be considered "rockin'," but I think it works beautifully.

    I have a gifted musician friend who used to plug his Appalachian Dulcimer into a small practice amp and crank out The Star Spangled Banner a la Jimi Hendrix - it is a wonder to behold!
