Tull now has teaching CDs available for selected tunes/arrangements.  Each CD contains approximately 60 minutes of instruction, taking the student through the tunes step by step, note by note, chord by chord, gradually working up speed, and culminating with "play along" tracks at the end.  Students learn new techniques and new tunes at the same time.  It's like having a workshop instructor in your living room - except that you can hit "rewind" or "repeat" for those tricky sections!
 

 

 

 

 



 



 

 

SILVER BELL

Mountain Dulcimer Workshop

With Tull Glazener

During the golden age of popular song Tin Pan Alley published a large number of songs that were ostensibly themed around Western images. Among the songs published were many with traditional cowboy and Indian (Native American) themes, including “Pony Boy, “My Western Rose”, “Santa Fe”, and “Snow Deer”.  “Silver Bell” was written in 1910 by Percy Wenrich (music) and Edward Madden (lyrics), in an attempt to cash in on the huge popularity of another Indian song, “Red Wing”, which had been written in 1907.

One of the interesting aspects of this tune is the fact that it modulates from the key of D in the “A-part” (verse) to the key of G in the “B-part” (chorus).  This is easily accomplished in D-A-d tuning without having to stop to re-tune, or install a capo. 

This arrangement has 3 parts – the melody, a backup part, and a harmony part.  The 78-minute CD is divided up into individual tracks covering small sections of each part in detail, looping entire parts, and culminating with a “play-along” track that combines all 3 parts.

Enjoy!

In music and friendship,

Tull
