We are proud to introduce our newest lesson, Traditional Noter Style, by Steve Eulberg.
Many mountain dulcimer players play their instruments by pressing the fatty pads of their fingertips down on the strings to create the different notes. But there is another option.
The traditional, old-time way of playing a mountain dulcimer is to use a noter. The noter can be anything from the broad side of a popsicle stick to a wooden dowel - or anything around the house that can be used to press down on the strings.
In this series of 14 videos, Steve introduces the traditional noter/drone style of playing, shows us some of the tools (noters) that he uses, and explains how to use the noter with different tunings.
In an online dulcimer lesson, you will be taught exactly the same skills that you would learn in a one-on-one personal lesson, a group lesson, or a workshop. But you never have to leave the house.
