This class is for intermediate or advanced beginners. We'll cover some American Fiddle Tunes which require a dulcimer capo to play. These tunes are relatively simple, but offer options to play both drone style and chord-melody style. You'll learn at least 2 tunes per class and get some experience using the capo.

 

You will need to purchase a capo for this class. Here are some suggested links:
