     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!

Priority Shipping option is now available. On my store page just click on the Priority button.  It will only add the additional shipping cost.


I have posted two additional free tab this month:

"Cumberland Mountain Bear Chase",  is a traditional fiddle tune that is really fun to play.

"Road To Zion" is a hauntingly beautiful contemporary song released by "Petra" and written by Mike Hudson in 1982.  Petra is a christian rock band formed in 1972.  The YouTube of this song by Petra is truly inspiring!  

I tabbed it in E minor with no capo.  If you have a 1.5 fret on your dulcimer, try using the 1 -1.5 - 4 as an alternate for the 1 - 0 - 4


    January has been a month of loss. My friend Terri lost her husband and another friend, John, lost his father. I also lost my uncle.  In memory of those cherished loved ones, I am dedicating this months Free Tab. 

"It Is Well With My Soul", was written by a man who had suffered a series of tragedies. Horatio Gates Spafford lost most of his business in the Chicago fire in 1873. He had scheduled a trip abroad for his family, but was detained due to business, so he sent his wife and 4 daughters ahead and he would join them later.  During the trip the ship, "SS Ville du Havre, was hit by another vessel and sank.  Their four daughters were lost.  Horatio immediately sailed to be with his wife and as he past the site where his daughters drowned, the words to the now famous hymn were penned. "It Is Well With My Soul", is an inspiration to all who have lost loved ones.
