Babelfish doesn't cover this.

Anyone speak Norwegian?

Da jeg selv er ejer af en dulcimer sker det at jeg studser over info på nettet om dette instrument. Bing Futch fra Orlando i Florida har virkelig gjort noget ud af at dele sin viden. Han har lavet en videoserie med spilletips på BlogSpot så du kan høre og se hvad det er for noget. Nu stammer dulcimeren ikke fra U.S.A. Den er kendt på britiske øer og også i Danmark hvor den er blevet kaldt en langleik ikke at forveksle med med det instrument der hedder ”Hammered Dulcimer” eller hakkebræt.

I have a friend who speaks Norwegian. He says it's not Norwegian it's Swedish or Danish. Still, he took a shot at it...

I own a dulcimer myself and study it over the internet. Bing Fitch from Orlando (FL) has actually done or made some part, heeh what.... Ok. He has made a video series with playing tips on Blogspot so you can see and hear what it's like. Now, I don't hear much dulcimer from the USA, it's more frequently heard from the British and also in Denmark where it is called a "langleik."

There's also a final line about their being an instrument called "hammered dulcimer" or "hackbrett" but he doesn't bother to translate that. He's a wierd duck that way.

Thanks, Butch! Tell your friend that I appreciate the translation!
