Level 2 Bile Em Cabbage
Bile ‘em Cabbage is the "call to worship" at many jam sessions. It's a good song to use for learning to harmonize with your dulcimer. The tune is included with the lesson on learning to use your dulcimer as a harmony voice when singing.
Level 3 Harmony Voice with Singing
Aubrey shows us how it is possible to harmonize with your own dulcimer by humming the melody to "Pretty Saro" while playing the harmony she cooked up for her own arrangement.
Level 2 Playing with 4 Equally Distant Strings
Aubrey shares how she became interested in playing with equally distant strings. And then she explains how fingerpicking changes when you go from the 3 string configuration to a 4 equally distant string set up.
Level 3 Reverse Tuning
The video starts with Aubrey's dulcimer tuned to D-A-d, the way we are accustomed to tuning. Then she demonstrates how the D-A-d tuning is not an easy key for a woman to sing for certain songs, and offers several possible solutions.
Level 3 Slap-Strum
This slap strum technique will turn your dulcimer into a percussion instrument. In this lesson, Aubrey shows us exactly how to make our strumming sound more professional and how to improve our dulcimer strumming with this muted, slap strum technique. 
Level 3 Tunings, Keys & Modes
A mode is defined by the series of whole and half steps. The mode is not defined by the tuning; you can play every mode in every key. In this lesson, Aubrey discusses the modes in both major and minor keys.
