Round the Horn (Jay Ungar, U.S.)

0 ratings

Jay Ungar’s best known piece is of course that “Civil War” tune written in 1983: Ashokan Farewell. Round the Horn is well-known among contra dance musicians and beyond. Helicon recorded it on our Helicon’s Winter Solstice Celebration (1999). The tune is a bit unusual in that it does not resolve and ends on the relative minor to G (Em). In these videos, I present a basic arrangement, explore the concept of left hand lead and some of the many possibilities that this hammering facilitates, and a backup.

Here's What You Get:

$38 (Sheet music PLUS video lessons)

Sheet music for melody, backup, arrangement #1, and arranging ideas. Ken talks through the tune, chord choices, hammering patterns, backups, embellishments, arranging, play-throughs, and more on his dulcimer (shot from above so that you can see what he's doing).

  • Basic Tune
  • Hammering
  • Chord Progression

***Videos can be streamed, downloaded, or viewed in the Gumroad App on mobile devices. Watch your email for instructions after purchase***

It's like having private mini-tutorials from Ken that you can watch over and over!

NOTE: Even if you already own the sheet music, your purchase ensures that you receive the latest updated versions, and future additions to new arranging ideas, backups and so forth as Ken experiments and develops his playing of the tune.

Thank you for your support - I hope you enjoy the tune! Please do not share your purchased music and videos.

Recorded at Fenchurch Music Studio, Baltimore MD for the Fall 2018 Sandbridge Hammered Dulcimer Retreat
