Dan Fogelberg's unofficial theme for the Kentucky Derby was recorded in 1981 and released in 1982.  It is arranged for mountain dulcimer in 1-5-8 or DAD tuning.  The arrangement makes use of a 1+ and 0+ fret, making it somewhat chromatic.

Intended for the intermediate level player with a solid knowledge of three finger chords and chord-melody style.  The primary challenge will be building and holding down the three finger chords while moving on the melody string.

Three pages.  Tablature, standard musical notation, lyrics and guitar accompaniment chords are included.

  • November 09, 2019 How Many Frets...

    A nice arrangement, EXCEPT it requires a 0+ and a 1+ fret. Yep, I’ve got a 1+ fret, and not a 0+ fret. Either I improvise something that doesn’t sound exactly correct, or I have a 0+ installed. May as well have a fully chromatic dulcimer if you...

    ’re going to play a lot of the stuff here. Further, my opinion only, if you need two additional frets, where most dulcimers have only two, this is not a beginner level piece. In any case, a nice arrangement.
