Dulci-Help #1...The Strum by John Keane

musician/member name:
Duration: 00:06:53
I hope that this will be of help to some mountain dulcimer players trying to establish their strum. Hopefully this will be slightly clearer than mud.

Marg, the "boom chicka boom" would correspond to the "out out in out" that you listed.

Thanks John, that helps some but I still have problems understanding what the sayings are, is it

out out in out out out in out


out out in out in out out out in out in out

Could you list it this way, please? I am having trouble following it, besides my handnot knowing how to strum, my ears don't understand either.
