VideoAbout the Lessons

1. Demo First Steve plays the song through in the D-A-A tuning, so you can get familiar with the melody.
2. Learning the Snap In this lesson we'll learn the Scottish "snap" and we'll utilize the "slide" articulation for that bagpipe sound. (If you want to go deeper into learning various articulations, take a lookin the mountain dulcimer skills section.) 
3. Chords Let's get clear about the chord structure and form of this song. 
4. A Part Let's turn our attention to the melody of the A part of the song. We'll explore and test several different fingering options. 
5. B Part In this lesson, we learn the B part of the tune. 
6. Ornamented! Now let's ornament the tune by adding a "turn" that utilizes the hammer-on and pull-off articulations that spice it up! 
7. Chorded Melody Finally, we'll look at adding chords to this fine melody to round it out.
