Note Naming: Mystery Solved!

These videos will help you learn your notes on the hammered dulcimer. It's not just about memorizing them; you'll learn some of the key concepts like 1/2 steps and whole steps, octaves and diagonals. Mary Lynn walks you through each bridge at a time, culminating in a random practice across all three bridges.

Demonstrated on a Dusty Strings D570 with a special addendum for D670 owners.

"I love how you break (the course) in little snippets. I...can play them over-n-over again until I pass the quizzes." -RK
