This is a method book and CD combination to begin to teach you how to use two hands with a "hammer" in each one ... to learn a variety of techniques to play melodies, scales and arpeggios across the field of pre-tuned notes available on the Hammered Dulcimer. It includes 4 chapters of exercises, 2 audio CD's with recordings of all examples, 9 tunes you can learn to perform as well as helpful tips for improving practice time. Stephen (a National Hammered Dulcimer Champion) calls it a method for hand "Interdependence."
I started playing around with Stephen's exercises and "I swear" I started having some really "fun" dreams. I think it was awakening some dormant part of my brain!
