Let me know if you are bringing your mandolin, your hurdy-gurdy, or both. ;)

John Jacob Niles on the Appalachian dulcimer. When I was a kid, one of my dreams was to own a dulcimer.

And seriously, I would be SO down to kick some jams at a Barbarian Groove Camp! I've been doing found percussion for years now, so I could bring some good trash to hit on.

Also, I have always wanted to have a Playa Water Sports camp on the Esplanade. Imagine a boat on wheels pulling an inner tube on wheels, playa roller skiing, etc.

I'm new to this discussion and a 3 time burner. I've always had a fascination with the plethora of nerf weapons. Could be real fun to have an all-out playa nerf war![/img]

JayBobBoy, by Nerf, I assume you mean nerf shooters. Projectiles on nerf guns are very light and blow away into Moopland very easily. For gunlike implements, the favored choice is some sort of squirt gun.

Now, for boffers (nerf swords), these are very popular on playa. On burn night, in Center Camp, there were several people offering up boffer duels. We had boffers at my camp, got raided by another camp with boffers, then we teamed up and raided a third camp.

I have two dulcimers. I can't play well, but I like to fiddle around with them. One shall NEVER see the playa.

why not a killing theme like - the kill of the holy houses - since religion means war - or the opposit and create a fugitive house for all religions

good luck you will work something out

I offer this thread as a scratch pad for everyone who is working out their ideas.
c.1200, "state of life bound by monastic vows," also "conduct indicating a belief in a divine power," from Anglo-Fr. religiun (11c.), from O.Fr. religion "religious community," from L. religionem (nom. religio) "respect for what is sacred, reverence for the gods," in L.L. "monastic life" (5c.); according to Cicero, derived from relegare "go through again, read again," from re- "again" + legere "read" (see lecture). However, popular etymology among the later ancients (and many modern writers) connects it with religare "to bind fast" (see rely), via notion of "place an obligation on," or "bond between humans and gods." Another possible origin is religiens "careful," opposite of negligens. Meaning "particular system of faith" is recorded from c.1300.

I wish I still had my dulcimer. I always loved the sound, but the lap top chording albeit traditional, made for not a real carry around instrument. with a neck like a guitar, the chording would be easier. hmmm, drone on top, strum from the bottom, something like this!

Here's what I want. I think I can do it. this is the you tube link. The guy has his advertising scrolling across the bottom of the screen, so I edited.

I have two dulcimers; one is an amazing piece of handcrafted art, the other a mass produced piece of junk. I can't actually play, although I twiddle about with the nice one for my own pleasure. I have no ear for tuning, so it only sounds good to me. Even with the simple numbers instead of notes, I can't read music. If you'd like to have the little Chinese one, I would be happy to let you have it. I thought I could learn, but it is a lost cause. I'm keeping the amazing one; even twiddling sounds fantastic on it.

Dang, girlfriend, the Appalachian dulcimer has got to be the second easiest instrument to play. Second only to the autoharp. :)

Well, shoot, isn't that just the nicest thing? Thank you. I actually gave my dulcimer away because I played it so rarely, and I needed the space. The strummer guitar neck version as a to-be-made item is a wishful project for me as well. Wishing I had it, and thinking of where it would be stored are at odds. (and would I play it?) I told somebody the other day I had 4 guitars and then came home and counted 6. If you want to bring your beater to the playa and make it a playa dulcimer, I'd be happy to share with you some twiddling approaches, give it a trip around the playa, and see if Dougly could put his money where his mouth is on how easy it is to play. ;) I agree that using a noter stick it isn't too hard, but chording and finger picking I find a bit more challenging. Joni Mitchell's Blue has some real nice dulcimer playing on it.

Chords are beyond me.... easy or not, I have no true talent. Which is odd, my mother's family put together an orchestra in Brigham City way back when so the young men would have something to do. We're talking Mormon pioneer stock from Denmark, when only male musicians performed outside the home and church. They were supposedly quite good. My grandmotehr played the organ for silent movies before the talkies. Utah is full of musical talent they say. That's why High School Musical was filmed here, LOL, or maybe the tax breaks. And then there's the Osmonds, and David Archuleta ... I guess it isn't something in the water here since I haven't an ounce of ability. Or maybe God is punishing me for not being a Mormon anymore!

I will bring the dulcimer, if I remember, and then we have to find each other!

Western music is so restrictive. Of all places, Burning Man should be a place to stretch our boundaries of our definitions of music. Make a little noise.
