The Ultimate Hammer Dulcimer Resource Book by Russell Cook

The Ultimate Hammer Dulcimer Resource Book by Russell Cook
SKU: 200097
At 2 full pounds and 330 pages ... this Hammer Dulcimer Resource Book that Russell Cook has painstakingly put together is almost a "must" for your library!  This is NOT an Instruction Book.  What it is ... is a reference manual of hundreds and hundreds of ideas and, perhaps, most importantly ... images to aid you to visualize your playing field.  It contains:
  • A Music Theory Section as a simple guide to explain certain principles of music theory and to demonstrate how some of these theories apply to the diatonic Hammer Dulcimer.
  • A "Snapshots" Section that provides diagram after diagram of great insights to the Hammer Dulcimer.  Picture ways to play chords and arpeggios in ways you might have never seen before!  Visualize chromatics, scales, octaves, duplicated notes and much, much more in simple logical patterns.
  • A Chord Chart Section that provides a thorough listing of chords from A to G of the musical alphabet.  Here, Russell has provided you chord charts, mapped from top to bottom of the Hammer Dulcimer, for each note of the musical alphabet.
  • A Common Chords Section that charts common chords formatted around their related key in order to give you easy access to the chords you will need while playing a song (great for jamming or playing by ear).
  • A Chord List Section that offers an exhaustive list of 75 possible chords for each key of the chromatic scale.  That's 900 listed chords and their formulas!
