We are excited to announce a new Mountain Dulcimer Lesson Series by Bay area teacher Deborah DJ Hamouris. Deborah teaches at the famed Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse in Berkeley and is the Director of the annual Berkeley Dulcimer Gathering which takes place in May.
In this lesson, Deborah takes us beyond playing melody only with a drone. You will be playing melody, harmony, and ornaments – and she calls this the 3D Method.

DulcimerCrossing is excited to announce and brand new Hammered Dulcimer Lesson set in time for the Holidays!
God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen is a popular, minor mode English carol from the late 1800’s. Here, Steve demonstrates 5 different locations and keys in which to play this carol, also demonstrating the Rhythmic Displacement that he used when recording this tune on his 2003 CD ‘Twas in the Moon of Wintertime. You can listen to the tune here.
It has also been added to the lesson set and the Backing Track Library for Premium Members.
This lesson series will go live in time for Christmas. You can subscribe to have access to all of the lessons, all of the time!
Vi Wickam has created a new Fiddle Lesson for the Scottish tune Miss McLeod’s Reel. that he and I like to play in our duo Fiddle Whamdiddle. I have already created a mountain dulcimer lesson in the Galax style for this tune on DulcimerCrossing here.
You can also watch a couple of versions of this tune below:
Steve & Vi playing a hammered dulcimer and fiddle duet at the former Caffe Olé in Fort Collins, Colorado: (under the title “Have You Ever Gone to Meeting, Uncle Joe?” filmed for Vi’s Fiddle-Tune-A-Day project in 2012.)
And Steve playing Galax style with Vi and another DulcimerCrossing teacher, Don Pedi, at a house concert at Steve’s former home in Fort Collins, Colorado.
