Thread Name: Mountain Dulcimer - Jean Ritchie Book
Subject: RE: Mountain Dulcimer - Jean Richie Book
Great book. The music is presented both in tablature and standard notation. Instructions for various tunings are given up front and the tunes indexed by tunings. Covers strumming, thumb strum and includes simple instructions for finger picking. Includes a basic history of the instrument; lots of good pix. If I could keep only one of my many dulcimer instruction books, Jean Ritchie's "The Dulcimer Book" would be it -- Pinetop Slim
