Recently I down loaded a copy of the above. This one was beautiful and easy to play. It is vastly better than a copy I have from another source. The mood in this recent copy is perfect
So easy to download and save on my computer and tablet!
I am really enjoying adding some specific banjo type techniques to my new LapJo. Aarons book has been and will be very helpful. I knew it would be fun to use when I read the introduction and found myself laughing at his fun comments. I was so happy to find this book!!
I was happy to get it by download since it is not available by hard copy.
Mr. O'Rourke presents different methods of backup in easy to understand instructions. He gives tools that a player can quickly learn to use right away and expansions of these that take more time and effort to learn. It's great because it allows a player to grow in skill and confidence when playing with a group. I know that I will find this book to be very helpful as I work to improve my backup skills (and to get over my shyness and fear of playing with others!).
The arrangements are beautiful and intended for the Intermediate level. Linda is the 1st woman to win the national championship (2001) and the first person to win with the fingerpicking chord-melody style. Many known dulcimer players learned from her. The YouTube videos she has posted are very helpful in learning her method, and her arrangements are consistent to that method.
Five stars! As an intermediate player, I really like Larry Conger's arrangements. This collection is an excellent assortment of American fiddle tunes, many of which are new to me. The audio files playing the melodies are just what I need to get tune and timing in my head and to learn to play it more easily.
Great transaction. Easy and clear download instructions.
Totally happy with the material. Great pace to a non player.
As a rank beginner This is the basic Dulcimer lessons I’ve been looking for and the accompanying download audio file is a major plus for me..
I live in Franklin and had the honor of playing in a mini jam session with Stephen a week ago. Having this songbook along with the MP3 files is INVALUABLE. He is SUCH a treasure and a gift to anyone who plays the dulcimer. Thank you for making it available!
I found this book through advertising and decided to purchase it. While I doubt I have the desire to play as well as Mr. O'Rourke, it is challenging me to be a better player. I have only started working the exercises but already see where the benefits lie and where I have already begun the process of playing more smoothly and with greater skill and dexterity.
This educational masterpiece is perfect for beginning players. It will also assist with teaching the dulcimer to anyone else who can see, hear, and read. A very well thought out and easy to use book.
