Good Old Summertime - 1-3-5 mountain dulcimer tablature arrangement by Merv Rowley and John Sackenheim
"In The Good
Old Summer Time"
For first-time users of the 1-3-5 tuning, this tune is
one of America's long-time favorites. It is quite easy
to play and is therefore a good way to begin to learn
the basic chord patterns. As an introduction to "color"
chords for harmony, this arrangement uses several E
major and E7 chords for effect.
The tab form being used for all arrangements we have
posted to date is based on the chord/melody playing
style, with timing notes shown as arpeggio chord notes.
Please note: In playing, these timing notes can be
fingerpicked, as shown (and heard in the TablEdit sound
file), or strummed while holding the chord. It is
important to hold the chord-do not pick up your left
hand while playing the "extra" notes.
