A special episode featuring the subject of Bing's composition, “Day at Trough Creek”, performed on chromatic mountain dulcimer with some new imaginings at Trough Creek State Park in James Creek, Pennsylvania. The tune can be found on “Dulcimerica: Volume 3.”
The Stark Sessions are bare-bones song studies shot in high contrast black and white with no dialogue, allowing viewers to focus on the tune at hand. For this session, the song, “Simple Gifts”, is broken down into melody, drone melody and then chords are added.
An excerpt from the “How to Play Bass Mountain Dulcimer” workshop from August 31st, 2022. Bing records “Bile Dem Cabbage” into a looper pedal and then demonstrates a number of different bass techniques.
