Comments about Mel Bay Dulcimer Chord Book:

I started playing guitar back in the old days back when cars had 8 track tape players and vent windows and there were no computers or smart phones. I started with a Mel Bay guitar book with a bunch of chords back then and now I have this book for my dulcimer. This is a great way to take your dulcimer playing to a whole different level.Most players will use D-A-D tuning and this book shows you many chords to use with that tuning and a few more other tunings and chords for that too. You will learn a lot of cool things about music in this book, This will also fit in your case or gig bag. You do not have to know every chord in this book but it will give you just about every chord you can ever want or need. Once you know a few chords you can figure out some chord progressions and have some fun. This book is a must have for dulcimer players.

Comments about Mel Bay Dulcimer Chord Book:

The Mel Bay Dulcimer Chord Book is an extremely handy little chord book, and easily fits into your dulcimer case! There are plenty of chords, although this book is lacking the chords for a couple of common dulcimer tunings. This book is definitely worth picking up, despite its incompleteness!
