Techniques & Ornaments for Intermediate Mountain Dulcimer
Slides, hammer-ons, and pull-offs for intermediate mountain dulcimer players.

We'll learn both the techniques and some tunes that employ them. Great techniques to get that distinctive string instrument sounds on your dulcimer.

We may play in both DAd and DAc tunings, so be ready to retune.

Fun for anyone who is ready to try tunes other than on the melody-string only.
