Morrison's Jig - Fingerpicking Dulcimer


musician/member name: Music
Duration: 00:01:27
description:
Here's my arrangement of a popular jig, using my fairly new fingerpicking technique. I've been learning a new way of fingerpicking which allows me to play fiddle tunes like this which would normally be flatpicked. If you would like to learn this technique, check out the Nutmeg Dulcimer Festival!

This is my cardboard styrofoam dulcimer tuned to DAD. I think I should have used a different dulcimer just because the sound didn't always come out well for this tune, but you at least get the idea of my fingerpicking technique.

I like it!  I anchor my thumb the way you, but use my index, middle and pinkie for the fingerpicking.  I don't get all those doubles in, though!
