Jolly Old St. Nicholas


VideoAbout the Lessons

Mountain Dulcimer
D-A-A Tuning
D-A-d Tuning
This carol is taught in the key of D in DAA and DAd tunings first with a drone melody, then with an added harmony note and finally in chord-melody style.  Discussion of accurate right-hand playing so the melody string(s) don’t obscure the melody when playing the melody on the middle string in DAd tuning.
Hammered Dulcimer Drills learning syncopation aid in creating variations in this song which is taught in the key of D with discussion about ideas for arrangements.  There are two versions taught for this tune, hammers playing together and answering each other.
