Beyond the Basics presents a fun and comprehensive approach to learning the mountain dulcimer, specifically moving beyond strumming. The author, a trained music educator, explains each new skill in the context of the tunes themselves. Each unit builds on the previous ones and focuses on a new technique. Suggested fingerings are included. Bits of music theory and notation are interwoven seamlessly into the units and are presented only as they are needed, making them easy to assimilate. This approach creates a solid foundation and enables the student to both play well and learn new music easily.

Contains clear, easy-to-read tab, standard notation and chords for 30 tunes, as well as an Introduction, 10 Units of detailed instruction, an Appendix, Subject Index, Chord Chart and more.

80 pages, coil-bound

Price: $29.95, plus shipping/handling (Priority Mail)
