Joyce Ochs - First Lessons For Dulcimer In DAD Tuning

This book is perfect, I bought it for my 2 grandsons that are interested in learning how to play the dulcimer.

Laurie Basile

This book offers a nice selection of beginning tunes. The tablature is helpful in learning where on the strings to place the fingers. What I found lacking were suggestions of which fingers to use when forming chords. For this, students of this instrument will need to search on YouTube where there are a number of instructors to help with this.

Great intro book

Bought this book to help me get started playing my mountain dulcimer. Good introduction to the instrument, tuning and playing.

Definitely for beginners

It's a bit elementary but it's easier to learn if you're actually familiar with the tunes. Having the audio is a bonus. It makes me sound better.
