Dulcimer,Instrumental Solo - Level 3 - Digital Download
By Gordon Lightfoot. Arranged by Larry Conger. Rock. Individual part. 4 pages. Larry Conger/Dulcimerican Music #4275483. Published by Larry Conger/Dulcimerican Music (A0.509725).
Gordon Lightfoot's first recording to make the American charts in 1971, this song is arranged for solo mountain dulcimer in 1-5-8 or DAD tuning. The arrangement is intended for the intermediate level player with a good knowledge of three finger chords and chord-melody style of playing. It makes use of the 1+ fret on all three strings throughout the song.
The primary challenge to learning and playing the arrangement will be the syncopated rhythms found throughout. Many measures will emphasize the second half of the last beat of the measure, changing chords just before the downbeat of the next measure. Familiarity of the Gordon Lightfoot recording should be useful when executing these rhythms.
Three pages. Tablature and guitar accompaniment chords are included. No standard musical notation or lyrics are included due to the length of the song.
