Got something with strings on it and don't know how to play it? Dickson's Music in Gravel Ridge may not have everything you want, speaking simply in terms of selection — the store sells mostly beginner guitars — but they can teach you how to play just about anything. Larry Dickson, who's owned the store since 1971, teaches everything from violin to mandolin, fiddle to guitar, banjo to ukulele. The store is also a good resource for band parents, or school music teachers. There are plenty of instructional books and accessories like reeds, picks, strings and tuners. One of the best things about the store: Dickson wants you to come back, so if he doesn't have it, he'll get it for you even if it means sending you some place else.
