"Looking for book/cd recommendations"
Dulci-more by Bill Schilling sounds like a book you'd like. It's mainly DAA, loaded with folk and traditional songs in the Public Domain and that includes many hymns and a back section of Christmas music. 250 songs in the first section and then 45 in the Christmas section. I don't see a traditional ISBN so I'm not sure if I bought it from Elderly or had a local music store order it. The book seems to be self-produced by the author who gives this contact info: 984 Homewood Ave., Salem, OH 44460-3816; 330-332-4420 & there are 2 sets of websites and emails firstname.lastname@example.org with
Hi Wayne. There are many book/CD combinations available from Mel Bay. Cripple Creek dulcimer has many good songs for playing at the park. Check them out at Mel Bay's website: http://www.melbay.com/Products/CategoryCenter/D09/dulcimer-mountain.aspx
While I have been depleting my stock of Mel Bay books, if you see any you like, you can PM me to see if I have it still in stock and I can make you a good deal on the price. Or you can email me at: longfieldsfolkmusicshop at embarqmail dot com. I hope you find some things you like. Enjoy your dulcimer journey.
"The dulcimer sings a sweet song."
Greetings from Louisville, KY.,
I am a beginner (One Year Now) player and having an AWESOME JOURNEY !!! I recently purchased a book/tab & cd "Stephen Foster Mountain Dulcimer" set (from Shelly Stevens). My wife (Sharon-autoharp) and ILOVE this resource. The playing along has REALLY helped me with strumming, timing etc. I am "Attempting" to find OTHER book/cd combinations (to play along with). We have actually used the Stephen Foster cd when we play at the park (several times) and passer-bys stop and listen. It's an awesome experience.
Any help (with recomendations) would be great. Would really like to find resources with (but NOT limited to) Hymns AND Christmas.
THANKS for your help
