First Lessons Hammered Dulcimer

First Lessons Hammered Dulcimer composed by Linda Thomas. For Dulcimer (Hammered). Saddle-stitched, Methods. First Lessons. Acoustic Music. Beginning. Book/CD Set. 32 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.20066BCD).

ISBN 9780786662906. Acoustic Music. 8.75 x 11.75 inches.

First Lessons Hammered Dulcimer is designed to instruct beginning players on the instrument. The melodies in this collection include a variety of hymns, holiday music and fiddle tunes written in standard notation, with instructions on how to read the notation. Lyrics and suggested chords for accompanying instruments are also included. The accompanying CD offers two tracks for each selection: a performance track with rhythm guitar and an instructional track with detailed phrase-by-phrase demonstration. The guided audio instruction at a slow tempo will prove invaluable for the "by ear" player. This method provides a "private lesson" approach for success on the hammered dulcimer.

  • August 27, 2008 This beginning Dulcimer Book is a big help.

    My wife gave me a Hammered Dulcimer several years ago, but I was never able to navigate the many scales and diverse patterns on the instrument. "First Lessons Hammered Dulcimer" is beginning to make sense to me, and I am once again looking forward to playing my instrument..
