Flatpicking Tips from the Best

Aaron O'Rourke's flatpicking skills mark him as the most technically skilled Mountain Dulcimer player around today. The tips in this book show how he got there. Of special value is his concern for explaining not only the "what" of technique, but also the "why." The descriptions are especially useful for beginners working on building their flatpicking skills, and the numerous examples and exercises will help more advanced players hone their skills.
