Easy to follow with great tunes!
"It's All About the Bass Dulcimer!" by Elaine Conger provides tab for 100 popular folk tunes. The book proves valuable for practicing the bass dulcimer, which would be more fulfilling to do in a jam setting because the arrangements are such that it's difficult if not impossible to tell what song you're playing when only playing the bass part. However, the only time I play with other mountain dulcimer players is during classes at the Old Town School of Folk Music and, although I've played bass dulcimer on occasion there, I must play arrangements from the instructor. Nonetheless, the bass dulcimer songs are worth playing to improve my rhythm, especially when "accompanied" by a metronome.
This book is really helpful. Easy to follow well worth the time and practice for great sound from the bass dulcimer. Just what I needed to accompany other dulcimer players.
Perfect. Just what I needed
Please note there is no melody included, and it's only in tablature, no staff notation. You need to know how everyone plays these tunes.
