VideoAbout the Lessons

1. Demonstration and Tuning Steve demonstrates this holiday favorite in the key of G by using the D-A-d tuning with a capo at the 3rd Fret.
2. Melody Now we turn our attention to the melody of the verse. Because the capo is at the 3rd fret, you will need to use the middle string to find some of the melody notes.
3. Chorded Melody This version requires a bit of intricate fingering, so you don't overpower the melody with the drone.
4. Using the 5-FInger Method With the 5-finger method, it is possible to play in the key of G, while the dulcimer is tuned in D-Ad. This is accomplished without using a capo, but rather by stopping the strings using all 5 fingers.

  • This jazz version of Jingle Bells inspires me to think outside the box with chord progressions. The video demonstrates Synthesia, a software developed to teach people how to play the piano by watching falling notes. You'll have to see it to believe it!
