  I finally finished my new book,  " 1.5 Fret Playbook for Mountain Dulcimer". The book has 63 pages of tab in G, Em, C, Am, F, D minor, D major, and D modal.  It is divided into chapters for the different scales and indicates the major chords, relative minor, and the 7th chord for each key scale. The picture on the right is a chapter page sample.

The Corydon Dulcimer Society played at the Sugarbush Maple Syrup Festival last weekend.  This was the 26th annual festival for Michael and Leane Sugarbush, of Salem Indiana, who own the 140 acre farm where the maple syrup is harvested and made.  Many vendors participated including honey vendors, soap vendors, work working and many others.  Music is provided in the log cabin. Mark your calendars for next March for this event!

     This month's free tab is "Cindy", a well known American folk tune.  Wikipedia, states according to John Lomax the song originated in North Carolina in the early 1900's, maybe around 1904. Other versions have followed and has been recorded by Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Ricky Nelson, and many others. It is a fun fiddle tune to sing and play. Enjoy!
