CHAPTER 4: Dulcimers in the British Isles since 1800 > Dulcimers in Scotland

The second generation - Jock McGibbon

Another player, a friend of Jimmy and Davie Cooper's, is Jock McGibbon, who is also a drummer; one might think from the superficial similarity of the playing techniques that dulcimer-playing and drumming might often go together, but in fact they very rarely do.

Jock recently wrote of an exciting new chromatie tuning, "so ingeniously simple that I'm amazed it has never been done before, and I'd like to have your opinion on it when we meet."
