Traditional Noter Style 6-Week Class


Single-Instructor workshops, band & house concerts, Club activities, monthly Jams


Erin Mae Lewis and I play Shady Grove IN a shady grove in Ohio while on our midwest Pop-Up Rest-Stop tour in summer 2019.  I am playing a Galax-style instrument in the traditional noter way while Erin Mae is fingerpicking.  This is typical of the tunes we'll work on in this class.  Registration deadline is Wednesday, July 7th.  Sign up today and grab your front-row seat!

Hi Mick,

This class is designed for all levels of players.  It will involve re-tuning but that demonstrates how the fret-pattern on the dulcimer works and how we get the drone strings to line up and support the noter playing on the melody string(s).

So, I think it will help you get further down the path to playing the music you love!

Arranging Popular Tunes for Mountain Dulcimer


Single-Instructor workshops, band & house concerts, Club activities, monthly Jams


ArrangingPopforMD.png

After spending the past 6 months working on the tunes for my forthcoming book from Hal Leonard, First 50 Songs You Should Play on Mountain Dulcimer , I am eager to share my learnings , as well as let you preview some of the arrangements in the book.

Because Hal Leonard has the resources to pay for publishing licenses for popular songs, they encouraged me to focus on tunes that were NOT in the public domain.  

As a result I was able to delight in working on the songs from my life's jukebox.

Some titles included in the book:

Time In A Bottle by Jim Croce

My Girl by Smokey Robinson

Your Song by Elton John

Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton

Ventura Highway by America

Desperado by Don Henley

Fire and Rain by James Taylor

You've Got a Friend by Carole King

Lean On Me by Bill Withers....

(Take Me Home) Country Roads by Bill Danoff, Taffy Nivert and John Denver

...just to name a few.

There are some unique issues to consider when arranging popular tunes:

Song Hooks

Song organization/ Navigation

Chords

Chord Voicing

Internal movement

Bass Lines

Interesting Chords in the Bridge

Copyright issues....

There are all the topics of this class so that you can arrange YOUR favorites for your playing satisfaction.

Registration is Open

Questions?  Just ask right here.

How do I find "my followers" in order to approve them?


Site QUESTIONS ? How do I...?

Maybe I'm missing something, but I can't find the list of people following me, in order to approve them unless I go back to the original email and click that link.  

Is there a direct way from the FOTMD website?
