New Book is Available!
My new book, "Mountain Dulcimer Beginnings", is now available on my web store page. The new beginner book is more comprehensive and includes more visual and written instruction than my previous Level One book. The student progresses though the book as they learn new skills at a slower pace. My thanks to my friend, Susan White, who spent hours proofreading the book. You are so much appreciated Susan!
This month's FREE TAB is: "A Hallelujah Christmas", an adaption of the song written by Leonard Cohen in 1984, "Hallelujah". The first time I heard it was at the first "Shrek" movie with my granddaughter in 2001. I love the melody of this song, but don't care for the lyrics as written by Cohen. A christian group known as "Cloverton" has written alternate lyrics and call it "A Hallelujah Christmas". Their lyrics can be found at: www.azlyrics.com>c>cloverton lyrics or just google "A Hallelujah Christmas". I tabbed it in the key of "D" with a 6/8 meter. I have posted two versions, one with strumming and one with flat picking. I much prefer the flat picked version! Hope you enjoy it this Christmas.
