1. Learning the Melody in Drone Style Playing a D minor-F major song in a minor-mode tuning, we first play it drone style.
2. Adding Chords to the Chorus In this episode, we add the major chords for Chorus (F and Bb—two chords you didn’t expect to play on your dulcimer!)
3. Adding Chords to the Verse and putting it all together Finally, we add some harmony notes to the verse (we look out for the frets to avoid) and we put the chords together as well.
