The mountain or Appalachian dulcimer, is a fretted folk zither that is semi-indigenous to the Appalachia and Ohio River Valley areas of the United States. Evolved from older European instruments (especially, it seems, the German scheitholt), the dulcimer’s defining characteristic is its diatonic fretboard. That is, on any string you can play all the notes of a major scale with a flat seventh (e.g., a mixolydian mode) for that string's open note. Most modern models also include a major seven on the so-called 6 1/2 fret.
