In Search of the Lost Chord


Post-Script: What I didn't adequately explain was that the set of speaker brackets I already had on hand was because I ordered an extra set when, some years ago, I was outfitting the Man Cave shed with speakers. So it pays to hang onto things - which is how I justify the clutter in my garage!

As for the turntable, it does play very nice, but the belt needs to be replaced, as it takes a bit longer than I'd like for the platter to get up to speed. And there's an intermittent break in one of the wires, causing loss of signal in one channel, that I need to address.

As for actually playing a musical instrument, I need to get back to practicing the dulcimer, my skills are indeed rusty.

That old console radio/turntable that my folks once had is now in the possession of a good friend, so at least I know where it's at.

Your patio room looks and sounds like such a pleasant space. Music is good. Your post inspired me to take my father's mountain dulcimer down from its display on the wall and to try to pick out a tune.
