November Lesson Now Available on Patreon!

This month we have an autumn-evoking tune called Salisbury Frost, which is a romp through the chords D A Bm F#m G D G A. Every month there is a tune lesson with an mp3, music and TAB, and Beginning and Intermediate Instruction. For as little as a dollar per month, you can get the music mp3, and there are some great free downloads you get for subscribing!

Jerry Rockwell is creating instruction for mountain dulcimer

NEW!!! If you sign up for our free email newsletter, we'll send you a FREE pdf download of all the essential chord reference charts from the Music Theory and Chord Reference book!! In the newsletter we're learning all about modes and chord progressions, having some fun with our Rounds, Jam-A-Rounds, solo dulcimer tunes, and more. In every issue there is a link to some TAB or there is a link to an mp3 where you can listen.
