Thread Name: Learning to play a Mountain Dulcimer
Subject: RE: Learning to play a Mountain Dulcimer
Bev and Jerry- Thanks for the ad...just want to say that my little book is a very-beginning book, teaches simple basics of "the old way" of playing, along with some good history. Modern chording, fingerpicking and "hot licks" are not taught here; however, if one wants occasionally to do it the old way, it's easier to learn it in the beginning than it is after one has mastered the more complicated methods. Clumsy grammer that, but you know what I mean! In haste, Jean
P.S. Can also be ordered through my website (, but for out-of-country folks the shipping would probably be prohibitive.
