3: Miscellaneous Lessons

Here are some close-ups (so you can follow the frets) of some of the songs we play, played slower and mostly on the melody string. Some times we’ll have two views of the same song: one view from the front as you would normally watch some one and one view from behind so you can see the fret board as you see it when you play.

NOTE: Keep in mind Jerry & Louise “usually” play dulcimers with a 1 1/2  fret so you’ll need to take that into account if you don’t have a 1 1/2 fret when you’re following them (though you don’t need the 1 1/2 fret for these (or most songs)).
