Workshop Details:

1:30 – 3:00     West Virginia Fiddle Tunes (Novice to Intermediate)

Learn some toe-tapping, old-time music from West Virginia’s fiddle tradition in the keys of D, G and A. We’ll play tunes from Sherman Hammons, Melvin Wine and others, using strumming and slides. Please bring capo.

 

3:30 – 5:00     Flatpicked & Fingerpicked Dulcimer Duos (Intermed. to Advanced)

We’ll play some interesting and beautiful pieces together in two and three parts, including a round, an instrumental by Bill Staines, and waltzes. Two melodies require prior knowledge of fingerpicking, but other parts can be played with a flatpick on single note picking, bass and chords, and arpeggios. Music will range from easy to challenging, with an emphasis on making the music flow smoothly.
