Fellow Dulcimer Players:…………

I finally figured out how I could get the September meeting info on the home page! Yippppppeeeeee!!!! I look forward to seeing you Sunday…………

Strummin’ in Memphis…….

Carla Maxwell……..

Greetings fellow dulcimer players………

The September Memphis Area Mountain Dulcimer Club meeting will NOT meet at the usual first Sunday of the week because of Labor Day weedend. WE WILL MEET ON THE SECOND SUNDAY, on September 9 at 3 – 5 p.m., at Carla’s house, so mark your calenders………

At this meeting we will begin by playing Poor Wayfaring Stranger in the DAC tuning. The tablature for this song was brought to our August meeting by Gail Weesner, but we didn’t get a chance to play it. By the way, if you missed the August meeting you missed a treat; Adrian Kosky was there and gave us a mini concert of some of the songs he composed…….

The DAC tuning is easily had on our dulcimers by tuning the melody string down from d to C. Try it; you’ll like it! It is a beautiful tuning; the Mel Bay Dulcimer Chord Book calls it the “Standard Aeolian of D” (whatever that means). It also says the Aeolian tuning “Appeases the mind”. So…………, if you want to appease your mind join us on Sunday, September 9 at 3pm………..

On another subject, you probably already know about The Memphis Gathering and Folk Festival that will be held on Friday, Sept. 28 and Sat., Sept. 29. You may also know that the class schedule and class descriptions are available on Lee Cagle’s website. If not, just go to Lee’s website:………….
