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!
Many thanks for A&B, Robin! You've given most helpful tips for beginners and experienced players. I greatly appreciate all you're doing with noter & drone instruction!
VERY well done!
Well done Robin- so helpful and clearly thought out. this will help traditional players especially, for years to come.
Many thanks for your comments and encouragement
I have put the videos and some additional notes on a new teaching page in the Old Style Drone and Noter group here:
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 done....so 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 playing....so I'm most thankful for all you share with us.
Clear and concise Robin, lots of thought shown here, well worth your effort ! (I might even take up noter/drone playing now !!)
Thank you for posting
