Bass Dulcimer -- All About Alternating Patterns

 —  —

Your living space!

(7:30 EST) This is a continuing class for those who have taken the “It’s All About the Bass Dulcimer” workshop at QuaranTUNE. It is a repeat of material I taught in June 2020 on my website, but with more time alotted to play more songs -- I’ll even bring Larry in to jam with us! The class will be devoted solely to the alternating bass pattern which fits the bulk of the traditional mountain dulcimer repertoire. We will review briefly the material presented in the workshop and then get more in depth on how to “get fancy” with walk-ups, walk-downs, etc. between chord changes. Tabs and audio files will be emailed the day before class.

References will be made to my bass book, "It's All About the Bass Dulcimer!" If you don't have a copy, you may purchase a digital download at

The event will take place online using Zoom, the free video conferencing platform. You will need a computer, iPad or smartphone equipped with a camera and microphone to attend the class. After you register, your email receipt will contain the Zoom link for the class. Simply click on that link a little before the appointed time to join the fun!
