A Rudimental Approach to the Hammered Dulcimer (Vol 1) by Stephen Humphries

A Rudimental Approach to the Hammered Dulcimer (Vol 1) by Stephen Humphries
SKU: 200112
Rudiments are the building blocks of rhythm.  A foundational sense of rhythm and the ability to perform certain rhythmic patterns makes playing the Hammered Dulcimer much easier and more satisfying.  As you study and practice these rudiments you will remove the guesswork from your playing so that you can focus on the music rather than the technical aspects such as "Which hand should I use here?" or "Why won't my hands do what I want them to do?"  Stephen will teach you:
  • The Single Stroke Roll
  • The Multiple Stroke Roll
  • The Double Stroke Roll
  • The Five Stroke Roll
  • The Nine Stroke Roll
  • The Single Paradiddle
  • The Flam
  • The Drag (or Ruff)
He gives exercises for Moving Paradiddles, Scales in Contrary Motion, Ascending Triads in Octaves, Switching Lead Hands, Variations over Chords, Inserting Flams, Inserting Drags, Valley Roll Variations .... and more!
Song of the Wood says: 
Stephen is wonderful percussionist who has created his own approach to the Hammered Dulcimer.  His playing "looks" impossible and effortless ... and it's because he has mastered ... rudiments!
