Fingerpicking "Four Marys"
Fingerpicked, noter-drone version of Four Marys recorded for Dana McCall's discussion on Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. http://mountaindulcimer.ning.com/ Thanks to Lisa Johnson for publishing her noter-drone tab for "Four Marys" at her Appalachian Dulcimer Noter and Drone blog and for encouraging me to post videos on fingerpicking.http://dulcimer-noter-drone.blogspot.com/2009/03/four-marys.htmlPlayed on a Ben Seymour Galax dulcimer tuned dddd (D4 D4 D4 D4). The song is in the key of G, starting an Ionian scale on the third fret of the paired melody strings.
This is very helpful
THANK YOU!!! Thanks for demo of the different types of picking and for playing it slow so I can follow. I'm a person that benifits most from seeing something close up instead of telling me over and over. I just got back from a day trip to Lancaster OH 3 1/2 hrs one way and am tired but can't wait till tomorrow to put your tips to use. This way I can play your vid over and over.
