What happens when a renowned dulcimer player takes an interest in old-time blues music? He gets a resonator dulcimer, with just three strings, and then travels to an international blues competition, and wins the solo blues guitar competition. Handily beating many of the world's best 6-string guitar players, while competing with a 3-string dulcimer.
But, it is a longer story, of course, one that involves years of study, research, and practice in the genre.
This book - Blues Method For Dulcimer 101 - is the product of all that work. In this book, Bing Futch takes you through a bit of history, a bit of technique, and a bit of theory, and (oh yeah!) teaches you how to play blues style dulcimer. From the chord progressions to the individual licks, this book has it all.
