The bass plays a very important part in song arrangements, supplying chordal and rhythmic support. It can be quite simple and fun to come up with bass parts for mountain dulcimer and I'll show you how in this online workshop taking place August 31, 2022 at 7 pm EDT.
We'll start with simple patterns and exercises for pedal tones and pendulum bass styles before delving into passing tones, walking bass, and groove-centered lines. You'll discover how to play these styles for different chords and keys, adding percussive effects for solid rhythm.
I'll also share with you the many different ways to actually play your standard dulcimer as a bass, from swapping the strings to using an octave pedal or just buying an actual bass dulcimer, I cover all the basses (haha.) We'll also get into other gear like cables and amps so that your bass playing can actually be heard, felt, and appreciated!
