Playing the Rhythm in Your Head
We have a new lesson for you by Robert Force. Robert is well-known in the mountain dulcimer world for his rhythmic playing. In this lesson, Robert teaches us techniques we can use to add rhythm to our playing.  He believes that the key to playing rhythmically is by listening to the sounds in the world around us and listening to what we hear in our heads.  

Robert Force is a performer and composer on the Appalachian dulcimer. He is also a producer, and the author of In Search of the Wild Dulcimer, Wild Dulcimer Songbook, and Pacific Rim Dulcimer Songbook. You can listen to the first video in Robert's new series by clicking here.

As always, if you have any questions, always feel free to ask Steve or myself.

Happy dulcimering,
