Dulcimer: On Broadway

I started playing On Broadway a couple of months ago. This is one of those cases where if you play a song a hundred times, interesting variations happen, and this arrangement is a very happy result of that. It incorporates a lot of two-hand tapping, plus some single and double bends, double hammer-ons, playing off of the beat, and other techniques I sometimes teach in more advanced workshops.

Folkcraft chromatic dulcimer tuned CGC. Starting in F, modulating to F# and then G. The basic underlying arrangement can be played on a conventional DAD dulcimer, without special frets, in the key of A.

Enjoy! sun
