Beginning fingerpicking

I just purchased my first mountain dulcimer and would like to learn fingerpicking. Could anyone suggest good books for beginners? I will be teaching myself fingerpicking.

I like soft Celtic music and gentle hymns and ballads.

I have a teacher and have taken one lesson. Since I have no musical experience I think it is important for me to work with someone. However, he doesn't teach fingerpicking so I will do that part on my own.

I know that I can do it. I am a self-taught quilter and amateur astronomer. Right now my husband and I are installing a small observatory in our back yard.

I just need guidance from dulcimer players who are proficient in fingerpicking.

I would really appreciate any help anyone can offer.
