Jean Ritchie's Dulcimer People bridges the gap between the old0time players and the folk revival. For those of us who havbe a passion for this great instrument and the history that surronds it, Jean Ritchie's Dulcimer People is an essential source. From J. Edward Thomas, to the Ritchie family, to Farina, to Lynn McSpadden, this book covers a lot of hallowed ground. History then gives way to playing styles and great arrngements, and from there it proceeds to dulcimer building. This is an all-around great resource. Don't pass it up!

Traditional Dulcimer May 1 2014
By Donald E. Kemper Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Not many new books on playing Mountain Dulcimers cover the old, traditional tunings and style of playing. This one deals with strictly diatonic fretboards and diatonic, modal scales- something that is becoming a lost part of Appalachian music. Now days dulcimers have chromatic frets added and some have completely chromatically fretted fretboards which was NOT how these instruments used to be. If you want traditional, old style, mountain music, this is one of the best resources. I re-bought it, loaned my cope several years ago, haven't seen it since...
