Mountain Dulcimer: Fiddle Tune Repertoire
Sunday, June 10, 2012, 3:00pm
Music 1 - Room #102
For Beginning through Intermediate Players. We'll have fun working through a few tunes from this rich material. These tunes are frequently used for Contra and English Country Dances and are just darn fun to play. You should be able to follow simple dulcimer tablature for this class. Beginners can play the melody on one string, more experienced players can play back-up chords or learn to simply incorporate the chords and melody. Come tuned to D-A-D.
