The Hammered Dulcimer: Getting Started

a beginner's introduction to playing the hammered dulcimer by Gillian Alcock

Getting Started is the tutor book and CD set which most new dulcimer players in Australia have cut their teeth on over the past 25 years or so. It has formed the basis of my teaching of many students. It includes 25 tunes from the folk traditions of several countries, including Australia, UK, USA, France, Hungary, and Ireland. A CD is included with all the tunes played slowly and at normal dance speed, so you can play along as you learn.
Contents include:
Frere Jaques O Susanna
Early One Morning The Keel Row
Click Go the Shears The Rakes of Mallow
The Girl I Left Behind Me Kafoozalum
