Subject: RE: Learning to play a Mountain Dulcimer
Oooh, hello Kytrad/Jean ! Pleased to meet you ! "The Dulcimer Book" is readily available over here in the UK online through places like "Hobgoblin" and "The Music Room". I bought mine online and after that found it on sale in my local general music shop in Chelmsford. The UK ISBN reference is: ISBN 0.7119.0386.7 (Oak Publications)

I'll second/third what Bev and Jerry say: it's a superb book, Jean. I love all the old photos and interesting information in it about the history of the dulcimer, too. My particular favourite is the photo of "Leah Smith of Big Laurel, Kentucky, playing dulcimer with a bow".

Pleased to hear of yet another dulcimer lover in the UK, Malachy. I've only had my dulcimer for a month and it's fast becoming the love of my life.
