Wind That Shakes the Barley
Arranged for Hammered Dulcimer Players by Steve Eulberg

This Scottish Reel is a fun tune that also helps us make decisions about whether to play across the bridge, or play in an up-and-down linear fashion; practice and make decisions about left or right-hand lead. We also practice the skill of learning to play a tune by paying attention to which courses are NOT played, and learning to the skip them

VideoAbout the Lessons

1. Part A Listen to some of the examples below to get the tune in your head, because it's unusual in that it doesn't end on "do." Then begin learning Part A.
2. Part B Next we work on the B Part, for the most part staying in the G box.
3. Alternating Hammers Steve demonstrates how to play the tune using the left hand lead vs. the right hand lead. He also points out that the A part is repeated and played two time, but the B part is only played through one time.
