Tom McConnell - Baritone Dulcimer Jam Book

Regular price $35.00

Do you have a baritone mountain dulcimer, and love its tone quality for solo play, but wish you could use it when you play with a group? This amazing book will give you tips and tricks for playing your AEA-tuned baritone dulcimer with a DAD-tuned standard dulcimer. There are plenty of songs (popular jam tunes) to get you started, plus all the know-how you'll need to make your own arrangements. You'll really appreciate the thought and creativity that went into this book once you start working through it, and applying your new skills to playing the baritone mountain dulcimer!

Every song in this book is included in DAD (for standard dulcimer) and AEA versions (for baritone dulcimer). The two versions are pretty standard arrangements, and will work in most any jam.

Baritone dulcimer jam book

This book will definitely allow me to participate in familiar tunes at a DAd jam because it is set up as chords to accompany the standard dulcimers playing those tunes. However, I thought the book would give me the actual tune tab for the AEa baritone rather than just the accompanying chords

Great book

Enjoying Baritone Dulcimer Jam Book

The digital download was a great way to receive your book and information quickly. I'm still trying to figure out how to do technology downloads but will continue to learn. I really like the music files of melody so I can practice the harmony parts. This is a great resource to learn the baritone part of jam tunes!

Tom McConnell offers beginning baritone dulcimer players an alternative to having to retune the baritone to ADa when playing in jams. Maintaining AEa in the jam is a wonderful option that others to date have not offered. The eBook option was an excellent portable option for me.
