Bass Dulcimer Book

Helpful book. I enjoy the exercises provided. The audio files are helpful for practice as well.
Hopefully, I can learn the techniques covered in the book.

Method for Bass dulcimer

Just arrived, ready for my Bass to arrive. The audio files really sold it for me. The book looks to be straight forward as the sample pages showed. I’ll report back more after I get to dig into it.

As usual Bing keeps things pretty simple.

I have other books by BING
Learned alot about the fretboard, pickup amplifiers and more.

I also had to get a L R Braggs acoustic D.I. because I didn't have a preamp in my dulcimer I just had a standard pickup.

I enjoy the exercises in the books

Over all it is a very good book very educational.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking forward are to playing the bass dulcimer.

Great book by a great musician

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.
