This outstanding children's method for mountain dulcimer is the result of the author's many years of sharing the dulcimer with children, and has been successful with children as young as 5 years old. This single volume combines the best material from the author's two previous volumes, Children's Dulcimer Method Volumes One and Two. In it you will find many traditional songs and folk tunes arranged for the mountain dulcimer. Each song has a simple strum pattern indicated above it with fret numbers for the melody notes and lyrics included where appropriate. There are instructions for strumming, chording, fingerpicking, and for three modal tunings (Ionian, Aeolian, and Mixolydian). Harmony is included for many of the songs, so that two or more dulcimers can play together.
