Aaron O'Rourke - Faster, Cleaner, Better

Regular price $25.00

This exceptional book (from dulcimer superstar Aaron O'Rourke) will teach you how to play just like he does. Ha! For most of us, that's unlikely to ever happen. But by working through the exercises in this book (and paying close attention to his text instructions, too!) you'll get a lot closer.

A lot of "how to" books are dry, and a bit dull. This one isn't - you'll see progress from the first week you use it, and keep on getting better every day you work on your technique. 

With your purchase, we'll email you a link so that you may download the PDF. The PDF file is in ZIP format - you'll need to unzip the file after your download is complete.

After you've extracted the files from your ZIP folder, you can print the sheet music, or enjoy it on your tablet or PC.

Your ZIP file will include:

  • The complete book, in PDF format (57 pages)
  • A folder with recordings of each song/exercise, in MP3 format, so that you can hear the sheet music as it is written (tracks)

This book is published by Fingers Of Steel, and is made available here as an authorized, licensed download.

Aaron's Book

Love this book. It is just what I needed because I have been struggling with tangled up fingers and trying to find the most efficient finger placement. This is it!

Great instruction!

I haven’t had Faster, Cleaner, Better long enough to gauge its contents, but the audio files are amazing! I am working through Aaron O’Rourke’s Flatpicking book and have found it to be challenging but worth the effort. I feel I am actually gaining some skill on the dulcimer rather than just learning to strum.

Challenging Exercises

Only had the book for a couple of weeks. Good description of how to use the book by the author. As a beginning player the exercises are challenging, but fun to work on. I expect that they will enhance my playing skill in the future.
