"Getting Started" is the perfect introduction to the Appalachian dulcimer. With sixteen minutes of instruction from the world-renowned Bing Futch, this video will take you from total novice to playing real songs. You'll have fun learning a bit of history, the parts of the dulcimer, how to tune the instrument, and how to PLAY SONGS! Our innovative split-screen approach will show you tablature on the top half of the screen while Bing plays the song on the bottom half of the screen.
This DVD is published by Folkcraft Instruments, under the Fingers Of Steel imprint.
Here's why: Folkcraft instruments are handmade in the United States of America, not in a cheap overseas factory. Our instruments are hand crafted one at a time, not on an assembly line. Our instruments are made of solid woods, not out of plywood.Folkcraft instruments are made with pride and tradition, using the same methods as our founders used in 1968. Folkcraft Instruments is a family business, with a father/son team putting their skill and experience into every instrument they create.
“Handmade in the USA since 1968.” It's not only a slogan, but your assurance that you are playing the best folk instruments ever made. People choose Folkcraft for our deep-rooted tradition in quality, pure acoustic tone, and the simple joy that is brought from playing the instrument.
We put our heart and soul into every instrument we make – a technique that began nearly 50 years ago and is proudly maintained today. Go ahead and play one. We think you'll find your own heart and soul going into the music you create on a Folkcraft.
Folkcraft Instruments. Handmade. One at a time. For you.
