    Comments about Apple Creek Dulcimer Music Book for the Beginner Book:

    I got this book to keep around the house in case someone was interested in that funny looking instrument called a dulcimer.This book, if you use it, can get you playing a dulcimer pretty fast. There are a few easy tunes to get you familiarized with the basics as well as some dulcimer basics. Very good book to get someone with little or no musical experience. The Dulcimer is probably the easiest instrument to learn and this book will help get you started. Be warned. Once you start playing a dulcimer and learn these easy tunes, you may get addicted to playing a dulcimer. Once you get hooked you will have a lot of fun. Get this book and a dulcimer and have some fun.

        Be REALLY careful!

          • Very confusing tuning instructions.

            Comments about Apple Creek Dulcimer Music Book for the Beginner Book:

            At this low price, this dulcimer song book may be worth your money. But, I'm not convinced that the other reviewers have really used it or even looked beyond the front cover. First, you must tune your dulcimer to something close to CC-C-G ("Ionian Mode") for the four strings, not the more standard DD-A-D, for which the little Apple Creek dulcimer (consistently pictured within the song book) seems most happy. At least, I think that's what they want you to do.

            But, beyond that, the "Tuning the Instrument" instructions on p. 2 are confusing and, perhaps, destructive to your little dulcimer. It indicates, for instance, "The dulcimer can be tuned to play in any key. Just choose the pitch you want and follow the instructions above." "Any key"? "Any pitch"? Sounds like a good way to start snapping strings if you're not really careful! Further, some of the chord charts on p. 6 for C-major are simply wrong. If you place your index finger at the third fret on the two "C" strings and your middle finger on the second fret of the "G" string, you'll hear a chord sounding F, C, B; interesting, but not useful for this book or any beginning student! Or, is the lowest string really turned to G? Again, the tuning instructions on p.2 are unclear, largely because the author seems like he/she doesn't want to "scare" a beginner by actually mentioning too many pitch names or talk about major triads. It might be an F, not a G!

            Bottom line: there are many much better choices out there, even with the "folk songs" that make up most of this book.
