When you think of the blues, you think about misfortune, betrayal and regret. You lose your job, you get the blues. Your mate falls out of love with you, you get the blues. Your dog dies, you get the blues. What better way to express the blues than through your instrument!
Most blues music is comprised of 12 bars (or measures). A specific series of notes is also utilized in the blues. The individual parts of this scale are known as the blue notes. Believe it or not, you can play blues scales and chords on dulcimers.
To listen to Steve's original song, The You Name It Blues, played on hammered dulcimer, click here. In the video above, you will hear the typical blues chord progression and Steve's original tune on mountain dulcimer.
