One important aspect of any dulcimer festival is jamming. Jamming provides an excellent opportunity for beginning players to play with others as well as more accomplished players to practice tunes they already know and learn new ones. Jim takes jamming to new levels. His encyclopaedic knowledge of the traditional repertory combined with his natural ability to hear chord changes coupled with his wacky and effective chord signalling devices combine to create the quintessential jamming experience. Whether he is signing chords with his hands, using the legendary Chord Hat, or operating Blinky the Chord Clown, Jim can ensure that it will be a fun filled and educational experience for all involved.
