Strumstick Tuning

Strumstick Tuning: How to Tune a G-Tuned Pickin' Stick (aka Strumstick)

Before you ask, YES! a Strumstick and a pickin' stick are the same thing!  This video works for your Strumstick just the same as it does for a pickin' stick.  The only difference in the instruments are the brand names.  It's like Xerox and "copier."  One is the brand term, one is not. 

If you have a D-tuned Strumstick all of these principles will work the same for your instrument as well!

By the way, we have a great Beginner's Guide to Dulcimer Guitar Chords available now!  (And on sale)  It's currently written for D-tuned instruments, but all the shapes apply for a G-tuned one.  However I'll be making a specifically G-tuned version soon.  If you're interested in that version, please email me to let me know so I'll work on it faster ;-)

Are you feeling pretty advanced now?  Looking to upgrade and expand your playing more?  Well, we also have a dulcimer guitar transposition guide you can download free to help you work out how to play even more songs.
