God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen

God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen

by Steve Eulberg

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!
