This is the follow-up Ebook to the free lessons you find on the website.
It contains all of the material from my site and a whole lot more, including audio tracks so you can hear how everything should sound.
And, the price is right! Certain (un-named) coffee establishments charge more for a cup of fancy java and a bagel. That breakfast will be forgotten by lunchtime but you can play your dulcimer for the rest of your life. Nice!

I got this great email the other day and I have to share it with you:
Thanks for providing a great website!!
I used your website to learn the mountain dulcimer. You present the information so clearly and add audio just at the right times.
I enjoyed how you gave a handful of lessons to get started and ultimately to get a feel for what your eBook was like, stating if you liked it so far, you'll get this and more with the eBook. Perfect!
I also appreciate how you addressed iPad issues upfront when downloading the eBook as this is how I use your information with my dulcimer.
Keep up the great work. Thanks for making your information affordable!
I look forward to continuing your instruction with the eBook.
Sincerely with kind regards,
Thank YOU, Sue! You made my day.

$10 Your purchase, in addition to teaching you to play your dulcimer, will buy me a cup of coffee and the cats get another sack of food. Yes, that's really the sort of thing I do with the massive wealth I accumulate by helping other folks learn to make music. My banjo books keep the dog fed.
