By Steve Eulberg for Hammered Dulcimer Players

VideoAbout the Lessons

1. Extending the D Chord We can use the triangle and ladder patterns in the Key of D to extend chords and play them as arpeggios, going both directions, from the bottom to the top strings of our hammered dulcimer and back down again.
2. Extending the G and C Chords In this exercise, we use the same triangle and ladder patterns to play extended arpeggios in the Keys of G and C.
