I would love to review this book, however, although you despatched my order on April 19, and it arrived in the Chicago International Distribution Centre, it apparently stayed there until May 10, after which there are no records or updates.

Easy to understand beginner books

When Richard helped me select my new dulcimer I also asked him to advise me on some books. He steered me toward 2 books. They will support me in my learning so I won’t get too far ahead and get frustrated. It is wonderful to have a great Folkcraft staff to support new musicians.

Great Beginner Book

Perfect beginner's book. Bought this to learn some "traditional" dulcimer tunes. Nice that it comes with a CD to play along with as I'm unfamiliar with some of the songs, although most everybody will know the real basic ones included. Chord chart, tabulature and notation as well as dulcimer history and playing tips.
