View all copies of this ISBN edition:

An instruction and repertoire book for beginning to advanced students of the mountain dulcimer. Rosamond Campbell’s chord-melody style consists of much more than fingerpicking arpeggiated chords. She uses drags, brushes, broken pinches and held notes, combined with hammers, pulls, slides, steps, arpeggios and other techniques to enrich the texture of the music and enlarge the musical landscape. The book’s emphasis is on beautiful playing from the start. It includes 25 songs in levels from comfortable to demanding. This personal and substantive book is intended to be both instructional and inspiring. Written for the 3-course dulcimer with a 6+ fret in DAA, DAC, and DAD tuning. All melodies appear in standard notation with performance notes and suggested backup chords, often with complete lyrics.

About the Author:

Rosamond Campbell has performed and given workshops at festivals throughout the country, including the Summer Solstice Festival, California; the Cranberry Dulcimer Gathering, New York; the Blacksmith Dulcimer Festival, Massachusetts; and the ASU Dulcimer Playing Workshop at Boone, North Carolina. She teaches privatley and at Hogeye Music in Evanston, Illinois, and is the founder of the Dulcimer Society of Northern Illinois.

Rosamond's Chicago-area credits include theatre, television, private programs and celebrations at such venues as the Chicago Historical Society, the Chicago Cultural Center, the Terra Museum of American Art, the Wrigley Mansion and even the Lincoln Park Zoo. An antique dealer as well as a classically-trained musician, she parlayed both interests into her books, The Victorian Dulcimer and The Parlour Dulcimer, both eclectic collections of nineteenth-century music (now out of print), and into a recording of musical Victoriana, A Tender Recollection.

Rosamond is also on the staff of Dulcimer Players News.
