Thread Name: Mountain Dulcimer - Jean Ritchie Book
Subject: Mountain Dulcimer - Jean Richie Book
Hello, I'm thinking of taking up the mountain dulcimer. I play guitar, but only by ear, although I do know a good many chords. But I know nothing about music theory. I've browsed through the threads on Mudcat and I'm interested in getting the Jean Richie book. I like the fact that it's the old style, which is what I want to play. My question is - do you need to be able to read music to follow that book, or does she give tablature notations?
