Mountain Dulcimer II is designed for those with some familiarity on their instrument. We will explore scales, finger-dexterity exercises, chords and at least two tunings. New tunes will be presented each week in the chord-melody and cross-string techniques.

*Pre-requisites: comfort with tuning and tablature, some melody tune experience, understanding of fretting and basic strums, and a nodding acquaintance with chords.
