Sometimes it depends on which hand is going to do better at which end of the instrument. I did not have my dulcimer (which I have yet to learn. Why do teachers say, Just mess around, you'll get the fingering. If I could do that, I wouldn't need a teacher, would I?) strung differently, but I'd rather keep all my fingernails the same length, instead of one hand's nails at the quick, and the other hand's 3/8" beyond.
