I know this has been on here a couple months, but I just found it. Very informative. I haven't actually tried much noter/drone yet, but will. The dulcimer is so versatile! I have never found an instrument with as many styles of playing. Something for everyone. I am sure I will watch these two parts again. Thanks!

Robin, GREAT presentation. You are just a great player but a great teacher as well. You have presented the material in an easy to understand manner. I hope you videos get 1000 views in the 1st week!

Great videos, Robin!!--I am going to watch them over and over--I already stayed up much beyond bedtime watching/learning--maybe my subconscious will process the information better...Your materials are always so helpful.

Just wanted to say I greatly appreciate your videos A & B. They are very helpful and well thanks for putting this together!! You are really filling a learning/information void for the noter/drone style of playing (especially in terms of modes/keys) as there is not a ton of information available. Most of what is published is more along the lines of modern styles of I'm most thankful for all you share with us.
