VideoAbout the Lessons
1. Drone Melody Erin plays through the tune for us, and then teaches it as a drone melody in the high octave.
2. Flatpicked Melody Next Erin teaches the flatpicked style of the melody, playing in the lower octave across the strings.
3. Chord Progression In this lesson, first Erin demonstrates the way to accompany the tune with 2 chords, and then an alternate method using 3 chords.
4. Chromatic Dulcimer Erin lines up her diatonic dulcimer right next to the chromatic dulcimer, so we can see the difference. Then she plays the drone melody version, followed by the flatpicked melody on this unique instrument.
