Southwest Missouri Dulcimer Day
Single-Instructor workshops, band & house concerts, Club activities, monthly Jams
I am organizing a "Dulcimer Day" Saturday, Nov. 18, 2023 near Neosho, Missouri, and would like anyone interested to attend. We have a great venue at the Old Cedar Mill Gallery. I will be offering FREE workshops in beginning and intermediate dulcimer techniques. If someone is interested in offering free advanced dulcimer or basic clawhammer banjo instruction, I'd be pleased to include that as part of the event. This is a chance to meet other dulcimer players in the area, and perhaps pick up a few techniques. Neosho is within easy driving distance of Springfield, MO, Fayetteville, AR, Pittsburg, KS, and Miami, OK. Event starts at 10:00 am, and goes until around 5:00 pm.
10:00-- Session 1: Tuning, using a metronome, basic strum for "Old Joe Clark" and Liza Jane"
11:00-- Session 2: Hammer on, Pull off, and slides for "Old Joe Clark" and "Cripple Creek"
12:00-- Lunch: Pizza, $5 each.
1:00-- Session 3: Major chords, "Cripple Creek" and "Waltzing Matilda"
2:00-- Session 4: Minor chords, "Wayfaring Stranger" and "Star of the County Down"
3:00-- General Q&A, sharing experiences and jam.
This is preliminary, subject to change.
