Before I decided to take up Bass dulcimer, I had a discussion with Kirk House about the subject and he said this was the Bass book to get. Great advice. If you are going to play Bass dulcimer, GET THIS BOOK!
This book was recommended to me by a Bass instructor at a festival. i was told of the few Bass Dulcimer books available, make sure I get this book. Sound advice (pun intended) if ever i heard it.
Sometimes old ladies fail to read the small print. Was supposed to review the product! I had wanted ‘this book because I had learned a few of Aaron’s exercises at workshops. The book is even more than I hoped for layout and progression is excellent. It appears Aaron can do a book as beautifully as he plays.
I loved the variation in the different parts. This is a great way to help build skill levels.
Great purchase to help you learn new tunes.
I loved the step by step process of set up and how to use each section and the reason behind each selection. I have used Tabedit for years but found some points I have missed. Very dulcimer friendly version.
It Truly is healing and relaxing as she said it is.
What a treat and a great way to learn even more…. Thank You.
This is an excellent guide to dulcimer flatpicking. It starts at the most basic level. Each new arrangement gets progressively more complex. By the end of the book you are doing some very advanced flatpicking. Also, nice selection of favorite tunes and lesser known compositions. Instructional text is clear, concise and easy to follow. This is the best source for flatpicking instruction of which I am aware. Highly recommended.
Too soon for review
Bing Futch- Method For Beginning Mountain Dulcimer
Clear, concise. Recommended!
These are just what I need. I recently bought a High B flute. (Never played a flute before.) I went to a workshop and got hooked! I play the mountain dulcimer and I needed some tab that will work for both. I like that I could download the books to Dropbox or forScore.
Love having the uke version of Join The Jam; very well done, tabs and uke chords are easy to read and adding the lyrics was a wonderful idea for those who love to sing. Looking forward to adding the uke to our mountain dulcimer jams. The download version is a great addition to my tablet. I was very pleased that the download included all the tunes separately as well as in book form. Highly recommend this product.

Melanie Johnston - TablEdit Manual, PC Version
This is an outstanding book from one of the true masters of the dulcimer. The book deals with many of the most important aspects of developing effective technique. Much of the information won't be found in any other books. Exercises and etudes are extremely useful for developing the techniques covered. Highly recommended.
well written step by step guide to using tabledit for creating your own dulcimer tab.
Aaron O'Rourke - Faster, Cleaner, Better
I haven't gotten through the manual just yet, but what I have been working through has been very helpful. I am glad I found this manual.
I am thankful for Richard's help with some technical issues I was having on my end. He was very kind and helpful.
Love, love, love these oldtime tunes tabbed out in their 'home keys'! Now I can work toward participating more in jam sessions where these tunes are 'standards'. Thank you!
It was effortless. I’m really enjoying it.
I can't tell you how happy I am to have this site. So easy to purchase and download. I get the books I want and start using them literally within minutes!! Thank you, Richard and all the folks at Folkcraft for doing such an awesome job!
the books I downloaded are excellent value for a small amount of money.
This arrangement by Larry Conger was awesome! Also like this new website - easy to use.
This book is just what I needed to feel more confident in playing my banjo dulcimer. It is an excellent resource with humor mixed in with the information and the first part of the book exactly described the frustrations I was dealing with as I was getting use to my new instrument. The download went perfectly, and I appreciate the choice to not have a paper book.
