Shape notes 1a: modern notation: "Boylston"

musician/member name: Music
Duration: 00:04:09
Correlation of scale tones to frets is demonstrated on the dulcimer. The tune "Boylston" (A Charge to Keep I Have) is used for practice.
A discussion of shape notes and the dulcimer can be found in Dulcimer Players News Vol 3, No. 4, page 24, Fall 1977.
