Charming English Dance Songs, Lots of Capo!

I have this Volume and Volume II. I have been playing dulcimer for just about three years. I really appreciate the tab on these songs. I like it when extra combinations of notes are added and it's not just three chords throughout. The capo really give the songs a neat sound. We need more books that use capos. The CD is really helpful and Mark also has YouTube videos of many of these songs so you can hear what they should sound like. These two volumes would make a great addition to your library.
