Greetings dulcimer players:
Our last meeting was an enjoyable one as we played songs in E minor. If you were not able to attend you missed a good time!
Our March meeting will be on Sunday afternoon, March 2 from 3-5pm at Carla’s house. Since we deviated from our standard DAd in February, let’s try a little more deviation by playing some of the songs we have in DGD (key of G). All it will take is tuning our middle string down to G from A. If you really want a challenge you can try to play these songs by capoing on fret number 3!
Some of the songs we will be playing are:
Bile Dem Cabbage (I know we don’t have this one tabbed in G, so try to find it on your dulcimer)
Close to Thee (Flat picked)
Cock O’ The North Jig
Flop Eared Mule
The Spanish Lady (flat picked)
Will the Circle be Unbroken
If you do not have tablature to these songs email me at magowandulcimers @ comcast.net and I will have copies made up for you at the meeting.
Hope to see you there.
