by Linda Ratcliff Moderato in C was written by Fernando Sor for classical guitarists. However, the exercise lends itself very well to the mountain dulcimer in the D-A-d tuning or you can retune your dulcimer to C-G-c to keep the piece in its original key. Watch the intro and demonstration below: This tune will make a […]
by Steve Eulberg Hi folks! This post is music-related but not dulcimer-specific. I have had a Patreon Project going since January of 2015. This fall I decided that I wanted to put together some one-month class offerings that would let people take a single class with daily lessons to work on a specific skill, figuring […]
by Steve Eulberg While on tour in southern California in August, DulcimerCrossing instructors, Erin Mae Lewis and Steve Eulberg arrived early for their gig, Peter Alsop’s Kids Koncerts (Dulcimer-Wellcimer) at the “magical treehouse” of Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum. Erin took these photos as we prepared for the pre-school kids concert on Sunday morning. As Erin relates […]

Here is a highlight from the end of the concert: Basic Members have access to these live events every quarter, Premium Members have access to […]
I’ve been teaching guitar in my private studio for many years.
In 2006 I was approached by JamPlay to become their first guitar instructor for a new way of teaching guitar: on the internet! I know, this is crazy, but it actually works!
At first we just filmed lessons and people watched them at their convenience, with the ability to pause and replay, and print out supplemental material, to progress at their own rate. Then, Jeff and Kevin and Chris at JamPlay decided to try an interactive chatroom, which was hosted by the instructors, to give student/subscribers a chance to ask their questions of the teachers in real-time. The teacher was able to answer and demonstrate. However, the students often had a difficult time describing their issue.

So JamPlay decided to upgrade the functionality of the chat and made it possible for students to use their own webcam and microphone to demonstrate to the teacher (and the rest of the chatroom) what they were wrestling with, or demonstrate how they had mastered that skill or song.
The result is a powerful, interactive and supportive community of instructors with student-learners/teachers which is active most of the hours of every week.
Since the chat has begun I’ve been a part of the roster of live instructors. At one time, I hosted 5 (3)-hour sessions every morning, which helped me to leave my fruitless attempts to teach music full-time in the public school system, in favor of working daily with people who were finally being successful at developing their musical skills in playing guitar.
Now here is the reason I’m writing today. The current annual price for an all-access subscription is $139.95 (38¢ a day, or $2.69 a week).
After December 28, 2014, the price is going up to $179.95, which is still reasonable, considering that there are more than 75 teachers with more than 4,500 lessons in High Definition video, available when you need it.
But here is the kicker: JamPlay is offering a sale, starting TODAY with a full-year for less than $100!
Yep, for only $99.95, you can have access to everything I teach, but even better, everything that everybody else teaches as well! I don’t want you to miss this opportunity before the price goes up.

You’ll be glad you did!
If this isn’t your kettle of fish, but you still want to learn to play, or just have some support while you teach yourself (which is how I learned, by the way), contact me about setting up live, one-to-one lessons via SKYPE. Or visit this link on my website for more details.
Following surgery, I found playing my old classical guitar charts and Hawaiian slack key tunes to be very therapeutic.I am making progress following my surgery 12 days ago, and my voice is also making a comeback, with many thanks to Cynthia Vaughn of M…
