Video: Tips for beginners- Where to add the extra strums?

  1. Thank you! This makes a lot of sense. I'm enjoying practicing Sugar Hill, and I see how you have placed your dittys on the longer notes in that song. I do notice that my dulcimer keeps slipping. I'll have to make myself a strap as you showed today! You're videos are so helpful!
