Dulcimer Players News.
DULCIMER ACCOMPANIMENTS FOR SWING
A 148 page instructional manual,
with the melodies, chords and dulcimer TAB for more than sixty tunes
including: Ain't Misbehavin', (All I have to do is) Dream, Almost Like
Being In Love, Crazy, Georgia On My Mind, Here There and Everywhere, I
Fall To Pieces, I'm An Old Cowhand, My Romance, Paper Moon, Pennies From
Heaven, Try To Remember, Tumblin' Tumbleweeds.
There are really cool chords in two
dulcimer tunings, DAD and DAC. DAC is the tuning that's typically used
for Aeolian, a minor mode. Here it is used to play in major keys
including F, C, G, D and A. Although the melody is given in standard
notation for all of the tunes, the dulcimer usually doesn't play the
melody. The dulcimer TAB in the book is to accompany yourself or a friend.
There are chord charts for guitar and bass players, fingerings for both
guitar chords and dulcimer chords in DAC, lots of theory (chord
construction and the musical logic of progressions) and hints on how to
jam on popular tunes.
