You Can Teach Yourself Hammered Dulcimer

You Can Teach Yourself Hammered Dulcimer composed by Madeline Macneil. For Dulcimer (Hammered). Squareback saddle-stitched, Methods. You Can Teach Yourself. All Styles. Beginning. Book. 88 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.95440).

ISBN 9780786604562. All Styles. 8.75 x 11.75 inches.

Every aspect of the hammered dulcimer and its playing techniques is covered in this comprehensive, yet easy-to-understand text. A masterful teacher, Madeline MacNeil exceeds the expectations of a beginner's book, providing a firm foundation for the development of a total musician while maintaining an engaging, informal tone throughout. With detailed discussions on dulcimer layout, hammers, tuning, and stands plus extensive performance notes on every tune, this book is a valuable asset to the beginning through intermediate player. From Oh Suzanna to Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring, Madeline shows the novice dulcimer player how to "map your way through" a new piece of music, finding clear, musical directions through what at first must seem like a maze of strings. All tunes are in standard notation. The book's 87 pages are illustrated with photos as well as quaint woodcuts, engravings, and pen and ink drawings.

  • January 13, 2002 Now this one is GOOD!

    I used this book to teach myself to play the HD. It was well written, easy to follow, & goes from ignorance to something to strive toward in progressive difficulty. I really like the note labeling with ABCDEFG for us note non-readers.Highly recommend.
