Simple Theory for the Mountain Dulcimer - Book
A practical guide to notes, intervals, scales, chords, and chord progressions
"Over the years that I have been a musician, this information has been the most valuable resource I've found for understanding and appreciating music. It has also helped tremendously with learning new songs and composing music of my own. I'm convinced that a basic grasp of these simple music theory concepts will help you to become a better dulcimer player and all around musician. You will learn a lot about what you've been playing, not just how to play it. This gives you the tools to build not only a more extensive repertiore, but also a lasting appreciation and love of dulcimer music, and music in general."
