Super helpful book

I'm a beginner taking lessons. Judy's book answers all the questions I have between classes, provides exercises, and even warm encouragement. This book is a must have for those new to mountain dulcimer. I'm grateful to Judy!

Judy house Beginner book

I highly recommend this book. Judy has laid out the lessons and explained each one in such an easy to follow format. The visual aids included in each lesson are invaluable. Only wish I had found this book sooner, so glad I found it now.

Finally received the entire download!!

I downloaded my two books but couldn’t retrieve the files one time and only partially the second time. Yesterday I was able to get both book completely downloaded. I don’t know if I was charged for trying the download several times. I haven’t check my debit card as yet. I only have one copy of each book ordered. Already using it and can affirm these will improve my progress! Results already!!!
