This is a method book and CD combination to begin to teach you how to use two hands with a "hammer" in each one, to learn a variety of techniques to play melodies, scales and arpeggios across the field of pre-tuned notes available on the hammered dulcimer. It includes 4 chapters of exercises, 2 audio CD's with recordings of all examples, 9 tunes you can learn to perform as well as helpful tips for improving practice time. Stephen (a National Hammered Dulcimer Champion) calls it a method for hand "interdependence."
Jerry started playing around with Stephen's exercises and he swears he started having some really "fun" dreams. He thinks it was awakening some dormant part of his brain!
