This is an exceptional book. It is written for the mountain dulcimer community but enough care was taken in its design that it would be a great gift for anyone interested in the very early days of what now is considered country music. 35 songs that every true country/folk music aficionado should know with standard notation, dulcimer tab, chords, lyrics amd anecdotal history of the tunes. Great stuff for very little money.
I love what Elwood has done with this music! I'm so excited to have the tab and the Carter family songs. Thank you, Elwood!
Beautiful book. Donnelly has clearly put a lot of work into the research of the history of the Carter family and their contribution and influence of folk music in the US. The book teaches about the mountain dulcimer with info on reading tablature, fingering, chords, and much more, including a bit of history on each song and it’s origins, with lyrics. A great book to have for a mountain dulcimer player of any level.
Good old country music, fun if you like to sing along.
