There Was a Pig Went Out To Dig - DAC

These tunes are in a minor setting.  DAC is familiar and the scale is Aeolian.  DAF is also minor but in the Phrygian scale. 

NOTE!!! You tune the melody string DOWN to F.

Try them out!!

2nd NOTE - There was a Pig is in Dm in either tuning - the same mode also - the scale just starts in a different place.

Pocono Hornpipe for HD - G - notation - lower

The tune, Pocono Hornpipe, was written by Naomi Hostetler in 2012 following  the 10th annual Pocono Winter Dulcimer  Fest.  We were priviledged to have her share it with us at this year's festival and have decided to make it a permanent tune for our club and "official festival tune." 

Some Other Tunes we've learned as a club...

Our version of this tune from a variety of sources.

Egan's Polka - D - pdf

Learned this from A.J. "Alf" Bashore... great tune!

Erin's Kitchen Table - pdf

This tune was discovered hiding in my McSpadden MD one evening and Erin said, "That's a neat tune. What's it called?" ...and that was that.  Now I will inflict it on you all to see if it meets muster.

Hangman's Reel - A - pdf

White Creek Pass - D - pdf

George Haggerty wrote this little fiddle tune, White Creek Pass, in 1991.  George has been a fine friend and untiring advocate of the Mountain Dulcimer.
