You Can Teach Yourself Dulcimer


You Can Teach Yourself Dulcimer by Madeline MacNeil. In this book master dulcimer player Madeline MacNeil teaches beginning players tuning, scales, strumming, fingering, chord studies, alternate tunings, use of the capo, and how to use the “”noter.”” She endorses both playing by ear and learning to read standard notation. In twelve intensive lessons, she explains everything from the basics to some very complex concepts in easily understood language, making this a particularly valuable book for the beginning instrumentalist. The lessons and songs are written in both standard notation and tablature.

Madeline MacNeil’s performances are characterized by her effortless vocals and impeccable mountain and hammered dulcimer playing. In this book she reveals some of the secrets of her success with the mountain dulcimer. Early on, she reminds the reader that the dulcimer is not a toy or a stringed kazoo but a serious, expressive musical instrument capable of stretching as far as the imagination. You Can Teach Yourself Dulcimer is simply a great fundamental book. Illustrated with photographs and drawings. Now with online Audio and Video download available.
