Greetings fellow mountain dulcimer players,
The meeting WILL NOT be at Carla’s house; rather it WILL be at MY house in Memphis. For directions, phone # (901) 751-8306.
The reason for this change is so we will not conflict with the Sunday workshops given by Erin and Amber Rogers June 1 at Howard Vance Guitar Academy. Erin will be teaching workshops on Mountain Dulcimer, and Amber on Fiddle and Banjo. They will also have a concert at 8pm at the Academy on Saturday night and will be available for private lessons on both days. If you are interested in either the workshops and/or private lessons you must preregister by calling Anita Baker Sherman at (901) 761-0535. If you need a copy of workshop schedule, use the contact button on the left of this page to email me, and I will send you one. This is a great opportunity to get some personalized and group instruction by two very talented young ladies. I hope you will take advantage of it.
Our next MAMD Club meeting WILL NOT be on the first Sunday of June; rather, it WILL be held on the second Sunday, June 8 from 3-5pm.
At our our last MAMD Club meeting we learned a few ways to form chords for playing in DGd. The information came from a workshop I took at the Dulcimer Jamboree in Mt. View, AR under the instruction of Joe Collins. Joe gave me permission to share this information with you.
At the upcoming June 8 meeting I will share some things Joe taught us about playing “upside down”. No, it is not playing the dulcimer standing on your head, but come and see what it is!
I look forward to seeing you on June 8.
