While TablEdit is a great program( I use it all the time) and Matthieu Leschemelle is a musical genius, the program can sometimes be quite challenging. Melanie has simplified a great many aspects of the program. Within 20 minutes I found the answer for a function I had wanted to use but couldn't because of the highly technically directions in the manual. If you use or plan to use TablEdit (and I encourage it)....buy Melanie's book!
I've been playing a dulcimer for about 1 1/2 years. I used Melanie's book for my first try with TablEdit. There certainly is a learning curve, but for the most part it went well. You may have to design your own 'cheat sheet' to help you find things.
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.
This book really helped in organizing the process of learning tabledit. Still required some experimentation but, that may be influenced by version changes.
So glad to have assistance figuring this program out. This book has been helpful and the service in ordering and receiving the product was great also.
