Thread Name: Learning to play a Mountain Dulcimer
Subject: RE: Learning to play a Mountain Dulcimer
The Patons used to have a book and record, which they transcribed onto cassette, by Howie Mitchell on building and playing the Mountain Dulicmer and another set on the Hammered Dulcimer. This gave both the standard strums, studies of the various modal tunings, and an introduction in playing fretted chords and double thumbing techniques.

The last time I called Folk Legacy there was some problem locating both the book and the record/tape, but they originally came together. Since then they purged most of their records so the problem may have become more acute.
