Tunes 'n' Techniques for Hammered Dulcimer by Mark Wade

Tunes 'n' Techniques for Hammered Dulcimer by Mark Wade
SKU: 200105

Mark says:  "This book is designed to teach solid dulcimer skills and provide worthwhile dulcimer music in the tunes that follow.  Often players  ask me to share a "hotlick" from a tune on one of my CD's.  I don't mind at all - that's how I learned them myself.  The problem comes when that person does not have thetechnique needed to pull off that "hot lick."  Problem solved!  Not only do I write out verbatim many of my CD arrangements and fiddle tune variations, but I also provide technical exercises that will make even my "Flight of the Bumble Bee-Bop" a cinch.  I hope you find my dulcimer method of position markers user-friendly and possibly enlightening (two basic positions allow every major and minor chord possible."
