The Hal Leonard Dulcimer Method is designed for anyone just learning to play the mountain (Appalachian) dulcimer, but is equally useful to the intermediate player. This comprehensive and easy-to-use guide includes many techniques, tips, and fun songs to learn and play. The accompanying audio contains 54 tracks of traditional songs for demonstration and play along. Completely re-edited, this second edition features more songs, new photos and brand new demonstration recordings. The audio is accessed online using the unique code inside each book and can be streamed or downloaded. The audio files include PLAYBACK+, a multi-functional audio player that allows you to slow down audio without changing pitch, set loop points, change keys, and pan left or right.
