Bing demonstrates some of the ways to embellish an arrange a simple tune on the mountain dulcimer, using "Amazing Grace" as an example. This video goes over chord-melody style playing in the key of DAD, the use of dominant seventh chords, bass string walk-ups and walk-downs, chord substitutions and the use of the 1 1/2 fret to introduce "blue notes" for added emotion.
