Dulci-Bro: 

"I can slide,

now what?"

Mondays 4 pm MDT

This next-level class is for people who have already taken my introduction and overview classes to play slide style on a resonator dulcimer in a 4-string set-up.

Taught in a workshop-style, students will bring tunes they already play on mountain dulcimer so we can work together on adapting them for this style of playing.  Strategies for playing dulcibro in ensembles will also be addressed. 

 Choose "add a book" if you'd like a physical copy of Dulci-Bro: Methods and Resources for playing Resonator Dulcimer.

The traditional way of learning is...

knee to knee or in our case, screen to screen. 

Students will receive .mp3 sound files to listen before class to the tunes we'll be learning, together with the reinforcement of written tablature. 

Finally, a video archive of each week's session is provided to students as well.

The Dulcimer Community is welcoming....

This course gives you the skills to enter into jam sessions of traditional music and strum along with enthusiasm and joy!
