Intermediate Conger Style Mountain Dulcimer
Intermediate players will be introduced to the Conger method of
"five-fingers on the fretboard" with folk and classical arrangements by
Larry Conger. 2- 3 pieces will be undertaken each class.
We will methodically explore chord shapes all up & down the fretboard in
D-A-dd tuning, getting familiar with their names and how to find them for
future arrangements and jamming.
A capo will be required for some arrangements.
Required texts: September on the Mississippi and The Classical Dulcimer
