VideoAbout the Lessons

1. Demonstration Steve demonstrates this fun tune.
2. Form of the Tune and the Story Behind It After introducing the uniqueness of this meter, Steve talks about the unique rigging of this ship inspired this tune.
3. A Part In this episode we learn about the first section of this tune and how it uses the 3s and 4s.
4. B Part This segment unlocks the second part of the tune, using a different variation of the 3s and 4s, and trading right and left hand lead to discern when to cross the bridge.
5. A & B Part Together Now, before we go further, we put the A and B parts together.
6. C Part The final part of the tune uses sets of 2s and 3s and the bridge crossing changes with right and left-hand lead.
7. Putting the Parts together Now that we have all the pieces, it is time to put them together, but alternate which hand leads.
8. Playing in more Octaves Because we are flexible dulcimer players, we can explore and play this in two more octaves!
9. Accenting Finally we focus on accenting the pulses so provide the lilt and forward movement on which a tune like this thrives.
