I think Cyndi plays it here in CGc but I could be wrong. Watch closely: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUVcULOQPqc
Here's a tutorial in DAd: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tl-_7-DP5zw
I believe that "True Colors" is under copyright and unavalable as free tablature. I don't know of anyone who has converted it to dulcimer tab and published it in a book. You could try a google search using the song title and mountain dulcimer.
Ok, I have another question. I would like to play True Colors on my dulcimer using chords but cannot find the music for it. Does anyone have this in D-A-AA tuning? Thank you.
Welcome to FOTMD, Cotton1989. It's good to have you aboard.
"The dulcimer sings a sweet song."
Greetings from Vermont Cotton and welcome to the site. Your question about is there a certain way you should pick it - I'm not sure if you mean a picking pattern, or a certain technique. You can use any pattern you like, or that follows the melody. As far as technique goes, depending on how important it is to make the two high strings ring, you'll have to adjust your hand wrist carefully that the finger goes flat across the two. Good luck. For pickers on this site, I recommend you listen to and talk to Jan Potts and Guy Babusek, both whom I have the greatest respect for. Have fun.
Hey Cotton, welcome aboard. Glad ya found us.
Welcome, Cotton1989, to this little corner of dulcimer heaven. Hope you enjoy it here.
Hi Cotton, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.
