In a special 30-minute workshop, Bing Futch delves into "that phrase" that makes most mountain dulcimer players crazy: music theory. Breaking it down into easy exercises, Bing shows how to memorize the fretboard using scales and how to build chords with just three basic chord shapes. Lots of information in this one! After credits ridiculousness ensues.
Bing demonstrates easy practice for flat-picking arpeggios, from chord-scale exercises to varying picking patterns for variety. Tuned in DAD for mountain dulcimer, this episode will help you to add some dynamics to your rhythm section!
