Bluegrass on Hammered Dulcimer is a collection of tunes commonly found in the standard bluegrass repertoire. Favorite vocal pieces such as A Man of Constant Sorrow, Angel Band, Keep on the Sunny Side, and Will the Circle be Unbroken, are included along side hot instrumentals such as Jerusalem Ridge, Rawhide, Big Mon, and Blue Grass Stomp. Even traditional tunes that you think you know already such as Bill Cheatham, Farewell to whiskey, Forked Deer, and Salty Dog are given a new twist when presented as a typical bluegrass 'break.' Intermediate players and above will enjoy the challenge of learning more complicated versions of common tunes and performing them at the high-speed tempo that is expected in bluegrass music. Players are encouraged to use these examples of bluegrass breaks merely as a starting point. Improvisation is a key component in playing bluegrass style and players will enjoy experimenting with their own creations. Each tune has guitar chords notated above the music staff. Standard notation only.
