Dulcimers By Jeff
I waded through a mountain of books, CDs, tapes attempting to play my dulcimer. I have spent many hours organizing this book to be a help to you. You will not have to struggle as I had to! This book is my answer to the hurdles I had to jump during the formative months of dulcimer playing. You CAN play the mountain or lap dulcimer. This book makes it easy! Beginning at the beginning and gently increasing your skill . . . YOU WILL SOON BE A WONDERFUL DULCIMER PLAYER!
Volume II builds on the lessons learned in Volume I. In Volume I, much detail is given to the basics. In Volume II, every song that is on my Homespun Dulcimer CD is included so you can listen and play along.
The Playing the Mountain Dulcimer Made Easy Series of books has brought great pleasure to me and many dulcimer students. Beginning in Volume One much emphasis was placed on the basics, continuing in Volume II less prominence on the fundamentals allowed extra space for more songs. Now Volume III . . . includes many of my favorite traditional and gospel songs, again in both DAA and DAD tunings.
With dulcimer players just like you in mind, it is my hope that you will realize many hours of enjoyment playing the songs in Volume III.
This book will make playing the bowed psaltery easy! Lessons include reading the tablature, tuning, bowing techniques, holding the psaltery and some of my favorite Gospel, Christmas and Traditional folk songs.
