GUEST,Kentucky Pat Help: mountain dulcimer playlist (6) RE: Help: mountain dulcimer playlist 04 Feb 02


Has anyone mentioned jam sessions to you? You and your group would do well to learn "Old Joe Clark", "Going to Boston", "Shady Grove", "Little Liza Jane", and other tunes that are often used to start off a mountain dulcimer jam session. (Amazing Grace played in G with a capo is often the last tune in a jam session.) The other key (pun intended) thing to consider is learning to play chords and melody in DAD as well as playing in DAA and other tunings. "Guest" didn't say what part of the country he or she hails from. There are many songs that are regional favorites. Many springtime Dulcimer Gatherings are coming up, plus Augusta Heritage Festival's Spring Dulcimer week at Davis & Elkins College in W.Va (April 14-20) www.AugustaHeritage.com. ...and the very best of all, Kentucky Music Week at Bardstown, KY (June 16-21) www.texas.net/square1/kmw, contact Nancy Barker at 502-348-5237 for more information.
