Mountain Dulcimer II is designed for those with some familiarity on their instrument. We will explore scales, finger-dexterity exercises, chords and at least two tunings. New tunes will be presented each week in the chord-melody and cross-string techniques.

*Pre-requisites: comfort with tuning and tablature, some melody tune experience, understanding of fretting and basic strums, and a nodding acquaintance with chords.

Freight & Salvage Coffee House

Intermediate Mountain Dulcimer Ensemble - 7-8:15pm

2020 Allston Street
Berkeley California US
Price: $130/$140 after 10/28/19

6 Monday nights, 7-8:15pm, 11/4-12/9/19

We'll have fun learning to play in an ensemble with duets, trios, and possibly more. Genres will include classical, early music, and folk tunes. A good workout for the intermediate player!

You should feel comfortable reading tablature and practicing during the week. Some music may use a capo, and we will be employing ornaments, finger-picking and flat-picking, as needed. Music will be given before each class, so you can study your part at home. Those pre-registered will get a digital packet before the first class.
