This compilation of tunes is designed to soothe the savage beast. The contents of the book are divided, almost equally, under the headings of Lullabies, Classical Selections, and FolkMelodies. All are arranged for the mountain dulcimer in 1-5-8(Mixolydian tuning), except for one in 1-4-8 (Reversed Ionian tuning). Along with the tablature notation, traditional music notation indicates the melody, suggested chords, and lyrics for many of the songs. An intermediate player should feel comfortable with the music, as the songs are written for both strumming and some finger picking patterns, and do utilize chords on all 3 strings.
