3. Part B Now we look at the B part with and without the pick-up notes.
4. Back-Up Chords In this lesson we'll play the back-up chords for this tune, and learn the "jum jig-a-jum" strum.

  • Angeline the Baker in the D-A-d tuning is taught by guest instructor Erin Rogers, the youngest person to win the Mountain Dulcimer Contest - being only 17 in 2004 when she won. She is part of Scenic Roots, a duo with her sister, Amber, and has been a favorite teacher at the Colorado Dulcimer Festival for 3 different years.

  • The mp3 above features Erin playing Angeline the Baker with her sister, Amber, on their albumn, "Bound for Somewhere." Erin plays mountain dulcimer and piano, Amber plays fiddle and clawhammer banjo, and both women sing. They graduated from South Plains College’s renowned bluegrass music program in 2010.

  • Watch the official video by SEA (Steve, Erin, and Amber) as they kick this traditional tune into high gear with mountain and hammered dulcimers, fiddle and vocals to keep your boots scooting and your toes tapping.
