Rear cover notes: "Up until now, there has been no one book that explains everything about getting a good dulcimer, learning to play it, and adapting its simple sounds to more complex, contemporary styles. This book, written by two dulcimer makers and players, does just that - through simple prose augmented by beautiful and instructive illustrations that capture both the 'down-home' and the modern aspects of the instrument. Assuming no prior knowledge of music, Robert Force and Albert d'Ossche start by explaining elementary terms, rhythm, and musical modal systems; move on to picking, chording, and melodic structure; and end with a section of further source material and quick reference charts."
