Guitar Joy
Tuesdays 1 pm MDT 

Using Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" theme I've created 30 different exercises to help strengthen and develop our fingerstyle skills on Guitar.

At the same time we are exploring some arranging options for our future playing on other tunes.

We'll work through ALL 30 in this class.

Playing Bluegrass on Mountain Dulcimer

Wednesdays 11 am MDT

When we learn to listen to the components of Bluegrass and learn to play in that style, we can be welcome in the jam sessions where we may have been scorned before!

Providing space, booming, chucking, playing licks and soloing will give us all the skills we need to succeed!

The traditional way of learning is...

knee to knee or in our case, screen to screen. 

Students will receive .mp3 sound files to listen before class to the tunes we'll be learning, together with the reinforcement of written tablature. 

Finally, a video archive of each week's session is provided to students as well.

The Dulcimer Community is welcoming....

This course gives you the skills to enter into jam sessions of traditional music and strum along with enthusiasm and joy!
