Contributors Welcome!

 

The 1-3-5 Team appreciates offers by guest arrangers who may wish to submit a music/tab dulcimer arrangement in a 1-3-5 tuning, for publication as one of our monthly offerings. Our site’s main objectives are education and entertainment of readers. The tablature is offered to illustrate the unique capability of a 1-3-5 tuning in providing “accidental” notes in melodies and in the formation of “color chords” as accompaniment. All varieties of music are acceptable, with two requirements:

  1. They must be in public domain (free of copyright).

  2. They should be playable by anyone having intermediate-level dulcimer skills.

Ours is a non-profit operation, hence no stipends can be offered for submissions. Also, we reserve the right to review, suggest changes of format and approve submissions on a case-to case basis. Credits and biographical notes about arrangers will be posted in the introductory text.
