New3 NEW LESSONS FOR DECEMBER

God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen is taught by Steve Eulberg for hammered dulcimer players. This is an English traditional Christmas carol. It is also known as "Tidings of Comfort and Joy," "Come All You Worthy Gentlemen," "God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen," God Rest Ye, Merry Christians," or "God Rest You Merry People All." It is one of the oldest existing carols, dating back to the 16th century or perhaps earlier.

Steve adds an extra challenge to this piece by teaching it in 5 different keys! Enjoy Steve's recording of this tune, taped for his "Twas in the Moon of Wintertime" CD.


Amazing Grace, 3D Method is demonstrated by Deborah (DJ) Hamouris for mountain dulcimer players. In this lesson, Deborah takes us beyond playing melody only with a drone. You will be playing melody, harmony, and ornaments - and she calls this the 3D Method.

Here Deborah plays the final version through for us.

Arkansas Traveler is brought to us by Vi "the Fiddler" Wickam for fiddle players. "The Arkansas Traveler" was the state song of Arkansas from 1949 to 1963. The music was composed about 1840 by Colonel Sanford Faulkner who got lost one day in rural Arkansas, asked for directions at a humble log home, and turned his experience into an entertaining tune.

Enjoy Vi playing this old-time tune up to speed in this video.

NewDULCIMER EVENTS PAGE

We have added a Dulcimer Events Page to our website (see the 6th tab from the left at the top). Our vision is to provide as complete a list of dulcimer events as possible - including not just festivals, but also workshops and concerts by dulcimer artists. You can sort this database and look over upcoming events according to the start date, type of event, name of event, location, city, and state. Just click on the column title to reorganize the information.

Please feel free to let us know about your upcoming event by using the Dulcimer Event Information Form. And always keep an eye on our Live Events Calendar, for upcoming concerts sponsored by Dulcimer Crossing.
