Tuned to D-A-d, a Mountain Dulcimer is perfect for playing Pentatonic Minor and Blues Scales in keys OTHER than D!

Using the Dulcimer Layout to play Blues Chords

We will get comfortable playing back-up chords for typical 12-bar blues progressions in several keys.

Swing Rhythms and other skills

like string bending, tremolos, and chunking are some of the special things we'll explore for playing this genre.
