On the Mountain Dulcimer

Level 4 Instrument Bulder's House
First Butch plays a spirited arrangement of his original tune. Next Butch teaches the melody for each of the three parts. And finally he demonstrates several variations and embellishments.
Level 2 Internal Metronome
Butch believes that rhythm is a skill that everyone can learn and which will improve our timing and performance. In this series, Butch leads us through several exercises that will help us tap into our "internal metronome."
Level 2 Looping Lesson Series
Looping is playing one musical pattern and saving, recording the next pattern and saving, and then playing a melody against the recorded backup tracks.
Level 2 Right Hand Techniques
In the 1st video, Butch describes and demonstrates his right hand strumming technique: Air Strumming, Constant Strumming, and Accenting. In the 2nd episode, Butch goes deeper into his right hand technique, drawing on his punk and rock background
Level 2 Sweet Spotted Pony
Spotted Pony is a traditional Missouri tune from R.P. Christeson's book, The Old-Time Fiddler's Repertory. First Erin Mae teaches both standard and chromatic mountain dulcimer players how to play this tune in the D-A-d tuning. Then Butch takes it to the next level with his breakdown version that he calls Sweet Spotted Pony.
